Media outlets are reporting that Starz has renewed crime drama series Power Book III: Raising Kanan for a third season, just days ahead of its second season premiere this weekend.
The official synopsis for the second season is as follows:
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.
Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming at Starz, said:
Our passionate and loyal fans have been eagerly awaiting the season two return of Raising Kanan to see the continued transformation of a young and naïve teenage Kanan Stark into the ruthless, no-nonsense character they know and love. And we’re thrilled to be doubling down on a third season with this incredible cast led by Patina and MeKai.
Production on the third season is scheduled to commence this summer.
The upcoming second season will have a cast that includes MeKLai Curtis, Patina Miller, Omar Epps, Malcolm Mays, London Brown, Hailey Kilgore, KJ Smith, Tracy Perez, Michael Rispoli and Paloma Guzman.
