EXCLUSIVE: Starz is expanding the series regular cast for season 3 of Power Book II: Ghost. David Walton (9JKL), Monique Curnen (The Dark Knight) and Moriah Brown (Raising Dion) are set as series regulars for the upcoming season of the Power universe spinoff.
Power Book II: Ghost is the first series in the expanded Power franchise from executive producers Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
The series picks up shortly after the Power finale and follows Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.), the son of James “Ghost” St. Patrick and Tasha Green-St. Patrick, as he navigates his new life.
Walton will play Lucas Weston, an adventure-seeking, left-leaning high-level executive at his family’s Wall Street firm.
Curnen, who recurred as former NYPD Detective Blanca Rodriguez in the first season, returns to reprise her role as a series regular in the upcoming season. This time around, she’s more determined than ever to finish the business of the past.
Brown will portray Kiki Travis, a young VP at a Wall Street firm. She’s Ivy League-educated, doesn’t come from privilege but is making her own way in the world of the business elite.
Mary J. Blige, Shane Johnson, Gianni Paolo, Daniel Bellomy, Paige Hurd, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Larenz Tate, Melanie Liburd, Daniel Sunjata, Berto Colon, Woody McClain, Lovell Adams-Gray, LaToya Tonodeo, Alix Lapri and Paton Ashbrook also star.

The third season will be executive produced by Kemp, Jackson, Brett Mahoney, who also serves as showrunner, Canton and Chris Selak, with Geary McLeod serving as supervising producer and directing the Season 3 premiere episode. Lionsgate Television produces the series.
