Stan Reveals Power Book: Ghost II Will Be Released On September 6
Stan has revealed the highly anticipated spin-off series for the Power TV show will premiere on the streaming service next month.
Fans of the franchise will be delighted to know that they can watch the new series, Power Book II: Ghost, from September 6.
Despite many hold-ups within the entertainment industry due to the coronavirus pandemic, series franchise creator Courtney A. Kemp confirmed that everything was on track for a September 6 premiere.
She said: "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.
"Along with reconnecting with some old favourites, 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."
The spin-off series is being billed as a new modern-day sequel for the franchise, which will focus on Michael Rainey Jr.'s character Tariq.
LaToya Tonodeo will also feature as Monet's daughter, while familiar faces from the original series including Naturi Naughton's Tasha and Shane Johnson's Cooper Saxe are set to return.

Rumours of Power spin-offs, sequels and prequels have been doing the rounds for a while, with an announcement last year confirming that Power Book II: Ghost starring Mary J Blige would pick up where the original series ended.
Later, a raft of three more titles were also added to the Power universe, with actor 50 Cent sharing a list of the new series on Twitter: Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Starz's president and CEO, Jeffrey Hirsch said: "In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time.
"These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of Power's most controversial characters while featuring a growing ensemble of complex, distinct characters along with the high-octane drama that set Power in a class of its own."
Power Book III: Raising Kanan is set to be a prequel set in the 1990s - and looks to be the series previously teased by 50 Cent in an Instagram post.
Power Book IV: Influence will centre on Rashad Tate (played by Larenz Tate) and his journey to try and get as much power as possible.
Power Book V: Force, meanwhile, will follow Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) as he tries to leave his old life behind him and start again in New York.
