The Power saga is one of the most vivid and enduring franchises of recent years. This week sees the launch of Season 3 of Book II: Ghost, a spin-off and sequel to the original show. The three seasons have seen the story build with great impact thanks to a cast featuring Michael Rainey Jr, Mary J Blige, Shane Johnson, Gianni Paolo, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Daniel Sunjata, LaToya Tonodeo, Lovell Adams-Gray, Melanie Liburd, Daniel Bellomy, Paige Hurd and Woody McClain.

We had the chance to put questions to Michael Rainey Jr. and Larenz Tate to ask about the continuing story. Here are the interviews.

Power Book II: GHOST Season 3 Interviews

Season 3 premieres on Lionsgate+ on the 17th of March, 2023.


The third season of “Power Book II: Ghost” kicks off with Tariq St. Patrick determined to get his trust, get back to his family, and get out of the game for good. The emergence of a ruthless new connect interrupts Tariq’s 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. When Brayden brings Tariq in as an intern at his family’s hedge fund Weston Holdings, the drug business expands beyond Stansfield and the streets onto Wall Street, while Tariq is also shown an alternate, legitimate path to success. Monet Tejada, set ablaze by the death of her son Zeke Cross, is willing to pay a hefty price to avenge her firstborn and keep the rest of her children – and the business – in line as she works closely with Davis MacLean to solve Zeke’s murder and keep the feds off her trail. Business is booming when a staggering reveal forces Tariq to reckon with a betrayal from those closest to him… and a R.I.C.O. investigation mounting into the entire drug enterprise, pulling Tariq deeper into the business and even closer to the legacy of his father.
