50 CENT ANNOUNCES THREE NEW ‘POWER’ SPIN-OFF SERIES

 

 

Power Book II: Ghost, the spin-off to the smash Starz show, may be set two weeks after the finale, but fans will have a little longer than that to see Mary J. Blige and Method Man in the eagerly anticipated sequel. However, the release date and time of Book II has now been confirmed by executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Speaking to Ryan Seacrest, the “In Da Club” rapper said: “Power Book II will be on in the same time slot as Power. In June it’ll be back on.” This means that episodes of Ghost will start on one of the Sundays in June at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT.

Speaking to USA Today, he also gave Power fans more information about exactly which cast members will be carried forward to Power Book II: Ghost. Asked if we would see the characters that survive the finale in the sequel, he said: “You will see those characters. I won’t necessarily say how you’ll see them.

 

“You may not see them in Power Book II. You may see them in a separate show. … When Power Book II comes, it’s 48 hours [after the Power finale]. You’d still be dealing with the emotional feeling from the loss that the characters went through here. You lose some characters but it’s the opportunity to introduce new characters (played by) Mary J. Blige, Method Man and other really good actors.”

Who those actors are, however, is being kept a secret by Starz until the original series of Power ends. However, characters who are likely to return in the sequel include Rashad Tate (played by Laurenz Tate), last seen on Power about launching his run to be the Democratic governor of New York, and possibly Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) depending on whether or not he ends up being the one who kills Ghost (Omari Hardwick).

 

Power showrunner Courtney Kemp said in an Entertainment Weekly preview of Book II, “there are some people from the original show as well as a bunch of new characters,” adding in a Hollywood Reporter interview that “some of Power‘s most controversial characters” will return.

Of the characters confirmed for Power Book II: Ghost, we know that Blige will play Monet, of who showrunner Kemp: “For Mary’s character, we use all the power and presence of the actress to communicate how this is a woman who is remarkable and unique in her abilities. She’s as smart, savvy, and strategic as Ghost ever was, but her learning doesn’t come from books. We always said Ghost was a bookish kid who read all the time. This woman’s acumen comes from the street.”

Per the Starz synopsis, meanwhile, Method Man plays Davis Maclean, described as a lawyer who is “ethically challenged with a few secrets of his own.”

 

 

Power Book II: Ghost is coming in June to Starz.
