Power Book II Gets Another Season

Power Book II: Ghost will be back for a second season on Starz.

Book II was renewed after only airing three episodes of season one. The spinoff became the most-watched new series in the network’s history with 7.5 million total viewers. Subscribers for the Starz app rose 42%.

“The success of Ghost right out of the gate is a tribute to the quality of Courtney’s storytelling, the strength of the Power franchise, and the loyalty of our incredible fans,” said Christina Davis, Starz’s President of Programming. “What Courtney, Curtis, and their team have accomplished in creating the Power Universe is nothing short of extraordinary. It is a privilege to be able to continue the journey of Power with the audience and we look forward to delving deeper into this world in exciting new ways for many seasons to come.”

The premiere season of Book II will air in two parts. The mid-season finale is scheduled for October 4 with the five remaining episodes set to return later this year.
