What Time Is 'Power Book II: Ghost' Season 3 Out—Episode Guide and More

Power Book II: Ghost is back for a highly-anticipated third season.

The Starz show, which premiered in 2020, was the first spinoff in the Power universe, which now also includes Power Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force.

Power Book II: Ghost follows Tariq St. Patrick, the son of Power's protagonist James St. Patrick, as he fights to shed his father's legacy while also battling to save his family.

According to Starz, the third season of the drama will kick off with Tariq attempting to get back to his family and out of the drug game for good, but the emergence of a ruthless new connect interrupts his plans.

When Brayden Weston brings Tariq in as an intern at his family's hedge fund, the drug business expands beyond Stansfield and the streets onto Wall Street, while Tariq is also shown an alternate, legitimate path to success.

Meanwhile Monet Tejada, fuelled by her devastation over the death of her son Zeke Cross, is willing to pay a hefty price to avenge her firstborn and begins working closely with Davis MacLean to solve Zeke's murder and keep the feds off her trail.

Additionally, a shocking reveal forces Tariq to reckon with a betrayal from those closest to him, and a R.I.C.O. investigation mounting into the entire drug enterprise pulls Tariq deeper into the business and even closer to the legacy of his father.

The creator and showrunner of the original Power, Courtney A. Kemp, executive produces the series, alongside Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Mark Canton.
