Power Book II: Ghost just wrapped up a successful first season. The series is the first spinoff to the acclaimed Starz series, Power. Season 1 of the show followed Ghost’s teenage son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) as he attempts to help free his mother, Tasha (Naturi Naughton), who has been imprisoned and accused of murdering the late kingpin.
Power Book II: Ghost is just the first of the Power spinoffs. Power Book III: Raising Kanan, which is set in the ’90s, will chronicle Ghost and Tommy’s friend turned nemesis Kanan (50 Cent) during his teen years in Queens, New York.
Power Book IV: Force has also been greenlit and will follow Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), Ghost’s best friend, as he begins to build an empire on the West Coast. And finally, Power Book V: Influence will chronicle dirty New York City councilman Rashad Tate’s (Larenz Tate) race to the governor’s mansion.
While all of these stories are connected to the original series, there are tons of new storylines and characters. However, which Power Book II: Ghost characters also appeared in Power?
Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr. ): Following his father’s death and his mother’s imprisonment, Tariq is tasked with trying to form his own legacy, freeing his mother, and balancing his education with his drug operation.
