‘Power Book 2: Ghost,’ created by Courtney A. Kemp, is a crime drama series that is a sequel to ‘Power.’ It picks up after James St. Patrick AKA Ghost’s death in the final season of the original series.
The spin-off follows Ghost’s son Tariq as he tries to make a new life for himself. He wants to break out from his father’s inheritance, but he becomes entangled with the violent Tejada family.
Now, the adolescent must juggle his studies, love life, and family life with his criminal career.
The first episode of the series aired on September 6, 2020. It attracted some pushback at first from people who didn’t enjoy Tariq’s key role.
The show, on the other hand, has all of the action and drama that made ‘Power’ so popular. Despite this, the season 2 premiere performed extraordinarily well in terms of ratings, making the show one of Starz’s most popular shows.
Fans, understandably, are begging for more. So, please allow us to share all of the season 3 news with you!
Release Date for ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Season 3
Season 2 of ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ premiered on Starz on November 21, 2021, and ended on February 6, 2022.
The second instalment is made up of ten episodes that last between 57 and 70 minutes each.
We have some exciting news for the show’s third season! Starz announced on December 7, 2021, that they had ordered a second season of the crime-drama.
After three episodes of season two were broadcast, the announcement was made. It was reported in late January 2022 that the cast and crew had begun filming the next chapter.
It was reportedly supposed to start soon after the holidays. However, the delay was caused by an increase in instances of the Omicron Coronavirus.
Furthermore, there has been a substantial shift behind the scenes. Brett Mahoney, the previous showrunner of ‘Empire,’ took over as showrunner after Courtney A. Kemp stepped down.
Kemp, on the other hand, will continue to be involved with the project. Season 3 of ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ is set to premiere in the last quarter of 2022, assuming everything goes according to plan.

Paige Hurd, on the other hand, may no longer be playing Lauren Baldwin.
In the third season, there will be some new faces. Harper Bonet, a progressive intellectual and gorgeous professor, will be played by Keesha Sharp.
Lucas Weston, played by David Walton, is an adventurous and left-leaning high-ranking executive at his family’s Wall Street corporation.
Moriah Brown, on the other hand, will play Kiki Travis, a vice president of a Wall Street firm. Kiki hails from a poor background despite her Ivy League education.
Monique Curnen, who played Blanca Rodriguez in ‘Power,’ has joined the cast to reprise her role. Blanca is a New York Police Department officer who has a link to Ghost.
Also joining the cast are Petey McGee (Salim Ashe Freeman), Matt Cedeo (Diego “Cristobal” Martinez), and Johnny Rivera (Roberto).
We still don’t know who will play Monet’s sister Leah, who reared Zeke.
What is the plot of Power Book 2 Ghost Season 3?
Mecca is in a pickle near the end of season 2 when the truth about him is revealed. As a result, tensions between him and Monet are increasing.
Mecca, on the other hand, provides Zeke with a way out of the life he so desperately wants to leave behind in New York, but there are issues. Zeke’s growing basketball career is jeopardised by the discovery that he is four years older than he thought he was.
Tariq and Effie develop a love relationship, but Lauren’s destiny remains unknown.
We may learn what Tariq will do when he learns what happened to Lauren in the third season. Simultaneously, we might get a look into Effie’s past.
Zeke is revealed to be the son of Monet and Mecca, but Leah raised him as her own. When Leah comes into the picture, things are only going to grow more complicated.
Furthermore, NYPD investigator Blanca Rodriguez will return to complete what she began and finally deal with the St. Patrick family.
Tariq’s life may be made more difficult as a result of this. So, we’ll have to see if he has enough aces under his sleeve to get himself out of this pickle.
