Power Book III: Raising Kanan has been renewed for a fourth season.
Starz has announced that the fourth season for the popular show has started production this week in New York, just as the third season prepares for its Dec. 1 premiere.
Starz’s president of original programming Kathryn Busby said in a statement that the network is excited to bring more of Kanan’s journey to fans.
“We’re thrilled to continue Kanan Stark’s story, and for fans to see how the events of his formative adolescent years continue to mold him into the cold-hearted villain they were first introduced to in Power,” said Busby. “We are quite sure that after viewers see the battle lines being drawn between Raq and Kanan on this epic upcoming third season that they will demand more.”
The third season continues Kanan’s journey into the criminal underworld as he learns more about his mother and her life. According to the logline:
Set in the early 1990’s, the third series in the “Power” Universe tells the origin story of fan favorite character, “Kanan Stark,” and his entry into the criminal world through his mother, who ruthlessly runs the family’s drug empire.
