Jeffrey Hirsch, CEO of Starz, said also: “The continued success and cultural resonance of the Power universe is unprecedented, and fans are clearly still hungry for more ‘Power Book II: Ghost.’ We’re excited for the third season of the star-studded series to get into production early next year just ahead of the debut ‘Power Book IV: Force,’ the fourth installment in the rapidly expanding franchise.”
“Power Book II: Ghost” is a spinoff of “Power,” the original drama series starring Omari Hardwick as James “Ghost St. Patrick. The other two spinoff’s of “Power” are “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” (which depicts 50 Cent‘s character Kanan as a child) and “Power Book IV: Force” (which shows how Ghost’s best friend and business partner, Tommy Egan, takes over the drug trade in a new city). With Michael Ealy‘s decorative acting resume (“Never Die Alone“, “Takers“, etc.), he’s sure to add intensive energy and immense value to Starz’s popular crime show.
