New York rapper 50 Cent is giving fans something to get excited about. The hip-hop veteran has teased fans with the line-up of actors and actresses set to star in his upcoming “Power Book II: Ghost” series.
Big Facts: On Thursday, 50 hit up Instagram with the must-see cast announcement.
High-Key Details: A few days ago, “Power Book II: Ghost” actress Naturi Naughton reunited with her “Power” co-star Omari Hardwick at a New York Fashion Week event.
Wait, There’s More: Details surrounding the upcoming “Power” spin-off shows and its key characters recently surfaced online.
Along with the previously announced “Power Book II: Ghost,” the premium cabler has also commissioned “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Influence,” and “Power Book V: Force.” “Raising Kanan” is a prequel set in the ‘90s during the early years of “Power” character Kanan Stark. “Influence” will follow Rashad Tate in his pursuit of political power. “Force” centers on Tommy Egan after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good. Larenz Tate will reprise his role as Rashad Tate in “Influence,” while Joseph Sikora will return as Tommy for “Force.” (Variety)
Before You Go: Last weekend, “Power” creator Courtney Kemp talked about what fans should expect when actress Mary J. Blige stars in the upcoming “Power Book II: Ghost” series.
It really is a continuation. It picks up 72 hours after the end of Power Book I, and it pushes you right into what happens next. I mean, there’s Mary, there’s Method Man and there’s a very complicated and interesting framework that we’re dealing with But, a lot of what was in the original Power, which is the idea of being torn between two worlds, is there.
