STARZ flagship series, ‘Power,’ has proven itself the gift that keeps on giving.
Created and produced by Courtney A. Kemp and rapper/entertainment mogul 50 Cent, the Omari Hardwick-led show enjoyed wild popularity over its six-season run before four spinoffs in its likeness were announced.
Now, after watching the first of said spinoffs – ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ – launched to massive success (as we reported here), fans are invited to the next chapter in the franchise’s story: ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan.’
See the project’s first trailer inside:
The official plot:
“Smart, driven and still naïve, Kanan’s world revolves around his mother, Raq (Miller), who raised him by herself. She is his everything. At the same time, he is beginning to get a sense of not only the world around him but his place in said world. Kanan wants to be just like his mother…and that’s the problem. He’s young and wide-eyed and doesn’t know how the hustle works. And even more importantly, his mother is not nearly as keen as he is for him to follow in her footsteps. Theirs is a complicated relationship that only gets more problematic as time goes on.”
A prequel of sorts, this origin story boasts Mekai Curtis as the young “Kanan Stark,” Patina Miller as Kanan’s mother “Raquel “Raq” Thomas,” Omar Epps as “Detective Malcolm Howard,” and many more familiar names and faces.
‘Power Book III’ is set to arrive summer 2021.
