Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 2
Was Power Book III: Raising Kanan cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on Starz? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.
What Is Power Book III: Raising Kanan About?
Power Book III: Raising Kanan is a prequel set in the 1990s that will chronicle the early years of Kanan Stark, the character first played by executive producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. The latest project in the “Power” set of series, “Raising Kanan” will follow the character of Kanan — a now-dead series regular that 50 Cent played in the original series — during his earlier years in the 1990s. 50 Cent’s return to the franchise with the theme song for a show dedicated to his old character serves as wink to fans who have kept up with each show.
As we enter season two, Raquel ‘Raq’ Thomas has gained control over the city’s drug trade, but her son is slipping away. Kanan Stark returns to Queens uncertain of his future with the family business, and because of Detective Howard’s lingering secret, he’s even more uncertain of his past. Kanan searches for the truth while Raq boldly expands the business into hostile Mafia territory. Lou-Lou has other plans that revolve around his emerging record label, but Raq isn’t about to let his side hustle get in the way of her expansion. Although Marvin remains Raq’s loyal soldier, he struggles to earn Jukebox’s forgiveness and become the father she deserves. The ties that bind this family are becoming undone, but Raq will stop at nothing to hold them together.
Mekai Curtis takes up the mantle as Kanan, while Patina Miller, Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Shanley Caswell, Lovie Simone, Toby Sandeman, Joey Badass and Hailey Kilgore round out the rest of the series stars. Quincy Brown, Ade Chike Torbert, Natalee Linez and Annabelle Zasowski play recurring characters in the series, which is created and run by Sascha Penn. Alongside Penn, Courtney A. Kemp, Mark Canton, Chris Selak, Danielle DeJesus, Shana Stein, Bart Wenrich and Kevin Fox also executive produce the upcoming series.
Eif Rivera and 50 Cent directed the music video for “Part of the Game.”
Ahead of its season one series premiere on Sunday, July 18, STARZ has greenlit a second season of “Power Book III: Raising Kanan.” The season renewal comes amidst strong demand for the upcoming premiere of the third book in the growing “Power” Universe franchise.
Set in South Jamaica Queens in the early ’90s, the prequel about the early years of the now-deceased iconic “Power” character Kanan Stark, portrayed in the original “Power” series by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, premieres on Sunday, July 18 at 8PM ET/PT on STARZ and across all platforms in the U.S. and Canada, airing day and date internationally on the STARZPLAY premium streaming platform across its complete footprint in Europe, Latin America and Japan.
“One season isn’t enough to tell the coming of age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of STARZ. “The anticipation globally for more of the ‘Power’ Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”
