First-look photos for season 3 of Power Book II: Ghost give a glimpse of what’s to come on the crime drama.
The images tease new alliances and betrayals as Tariq St. Patrick tries to get out of the drug game for good.
According to Starz, season 3 will follow Tariq as a ruthless new connect interrupts his plans to reunite with Tasha and Yaz, and puts him, Brayden, and Effie back into business with the Tejadas as they’re challenged to move more weight than ever before.
Meanwhile, Monet Tejada is still dealing with the death of her son Zeke Cross, and remains determined to avenge her firstborn and keep the rest of her children — and the business — in line.
And Councilman Tate will focus on a new love interest.
The season 3 cast includes Michael Rainey Jr. as “Tariq St. Patrick,” Mary J. Blige as “Monet Stewart Tejada,” Cliff “Method Man” Smith as “Davis MacLean,” Gianni Paolo as “Brayden Weston,” Alix Lapri as “Effie Morales,” Woody McClain as “Cane Tejada,” Lovell Adams-Gray as Dru Tejada,” LaToya Tonodeo as “Diana Tejada,” Berto Colon as “Lorenzo Tejada,” Keesha Sharp as “Professor Harper Bennet,” Larenz Tate as “Rashad Tate,” and Lauren Velez as “Evelyn Castillo.”
Power Book II: Ghost is the first spinoff in the expanded Power Universe franchise.
Starz recently renewed the series for a fourth season, with Michael Ealy joining the cast.
Ealy (Barbershop, Takers) has signed on as a new series regular and will play NYPD Detective Don Carter.
Carter is a rising police officer who was once on the path to becoming police commissioner, until his wife was killed in the crossfire between rival drug gangs. Now determined to clean up the streets of New York, Carter traded in his tie for a Kevlar vest and leads an elite NYPD drug task force.
Production on season 4 is currently underway in New York.
News of Ealy’s casting comes ahead of the show’s season 3 premiere on March 17.
