Following its premiere, the series will move to its regular timeslot at 8:00 PM ET/PT starting on Sunday, September 13 on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada, also airing day and date on the Starzplay international streaming service across Europe, Latin America and Japan.
“We are thrilled to bring the fans the next chapter in the Power universe with ‘Power Book II: Ghost.’ We know they have been waiting too long to rejoin Tasha and Tariq as he navigates the criminal world and the academic world without ever taking his eyes off the prize: his mother’s freedom,” said Courtney A. Kemp, Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer.
“Along with reconnecting with some old favorites, we are excited for the audience to meet a host of new characters, including powerful allies like Method Man’s Davis MacLean and potential foes like Mary J. Blige’s Monet Tejada. ‘Power Book II: Ghost,’ hits the ground running, throwing fans right back into the action just 72 hours after the events of Power 615. I won’t say too much more but what I can promise is that once the ride begins, we don’t slow down.”
“The ‘Power’ Universe just keeps getting bigger and better and ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ is getting ready to raise the bar again. We can’t wait for the fans to see what is in store for all of the characters they know and those they are about to meet,” added Executive Producer, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
“I have told you before, ‘Power’ never ends… we are just getting started.”
Leading into premiere weekend, STARZ will also present a marathon of the two-time NAACP Image Award-winning series Power. The Power season six binge starts on Saturday, September 5 with the first ten episodes running back to back.
On Sunday, September 6 the binge continues, starting with a replay of episode 610 and followed by the final five episodes, serving as a runway for the world premiere of Power Book II: Ghost beginning at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
Power Book II: Ghost picks up shortly after the earth-shattering events of Power as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed. Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance.
Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of getting out of jail and escaping prosecution by newly minted U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe. With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that’s been at it far longer than him.
As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.
