‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Renewed for Season 4 at Starz, Michael Ealy Joins Cast
50 Cent’s popular series Power Book II: Ghost has officially been renewed for a fourth season!
STARZ announced the renewal on Monday (Jan. 30) ahead of the season 3 premiere which is set to air on March 17. The network also announced it would be adding actor Michael Ealy to the cast. Production on Season 4 is currently underway in New York.
Michael Ealy will play Detective Don Carter who is described as,
“a rising NYPD officer who was on track to become Police Commissioner, until his wife was killed in a crossfire between rival drug gangs. Vowing to make the streets safer, Carter traded in his tie for a kevlar vest and now leads an elite NYPD drug task force that elicits concrete results against drug related violence. While his achievements are noteworthy public recognition, nothing can bring back his lost love.”
Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming for Starz had this to say about the hit series:
“Power Book II: Ghost continues to resonate with our viewers and we’re thrilled to get season four production underway ahead of our season three debut. It’s clear our fans are ready to devour more of this explosive series and we look forward to having Michael join our incredible cast.”
50 Cent has achieved success as an executive producer over the years, most notably for his critically acclaimed “Power” series and its multiple spin-offs shows that make up the “Power” universe. He’s also executive-produced popular shows like “BMF” and “For Life” and had a directorial debut in the film “Den of Thieves.”
“Power Book II: Ghost” is the first of three current spinoffs of the hit Starz series “Power,” which was created by Courtney Kemp. The series follows Tariq St. Patrick navigating his new life, in which his desire to shed his father’s legacy comes up against the mounting pressure to save his family. Along the way, Tariq gets entangled in the affairs of the Tejada family, adding further complications as he tries to balance his drug operations with his education, love life, family affairs, and mounting pressure from the feds.
