As Power Book II: Ghost quickly enters its third season, a lot is changing. Power Book II: Ghost's third season premieres on Friday, March 17, 2023. A spinoff of the popular Power franchise, the Michael Rainey Jr.-led drama debuted in September of 2020 on Starz and instantly became a fan favorite.

In a statement announcing the renewal back in December 2022, Jeffrey Hirsch, president, and CEO of Starz stated that there was little doubt that the program will be renewed for another season.

“The continued success and cultural resonance of the Power universe is unprecedented, and fans are clearly still hungry for more Power Book II: Ghost,” he said (via Deadline).

“We’re excited for the third season of the star-studded series to get into production early next year just ahead of the debut of Power Book IV: Force, the fourth installment in the rapidly expanding franchise.”

What is Power Book II: Ghost all about?

Power Book II: Ghost is a spin-off series from the popular crime drama Power, created by Courtney A. Kemp. The series premiered in September 2020, and it follows the events that take place immediately after the conclusion of Power.

The series centers around Tariq St. Patrick, the son of the main character from the original series, James “Ghost” St. Patrick. Tariq is faced with the challenge of balancing his life as a college student with his involvement in his family’s drug empire.

After his father’s death, Tariq finds himself under the scrutiny of the law, and he must navigate the criminal underworld in order to clear his family’s name and protect his mother and sister.
