"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."
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.
"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."
