FANS have been enjoying the spin-off show Power Book 2: Ghost this year after Power came to an end in February 2020 after six seasons.
The first season ended last week and now fans are wondering when the next instalment of Power Book 2 will be released as well as the other spin-off shows.

Will there be another season of Power Book 2?
Yes! Fans can breathe a sigh of relief as a second season of Power Book II: Ghost has been confirmed.
US network Starz announced the news in an Instagram post, sharing some short clips from the show, with the words: “Season 2 is coming #powerneverends.”
Starz has yet to announce when Season 2 will be released.
However, given that season one dropped in September 2020, we’re guessing it could be September 2021.
But in the meantime, fans have the ’90s-set prequel Power Book III: Raising Kanan to look forward to in 2021. (Two other spinoffs, Power Book IV: Influence and Power Book V: Force are also in the works.)

What will happen in season 2?
“In the second season, Tariq’s journey with the Tejada family will get even more complicated — and more dangerous — as he begins to understand the man he’s going to become,” said Kemp in a statement.
Chatting to Entertainment Weekly about the next chapter, she added: “Well, obviously Tariq has committed a huge murder and there’s going to be a big response to that on campus.

“Where we had begun an encroachment of his drug life into his school life with the incidents that took place in episode eight with the attempt on his life and the body in the pool, now his whole drug life is crashed into his campus life in a real way.
“And Tariq definitely feels like he’s walking around as a ticking time bomb. His relationships are going to get more complicated, and while that’s all happening he’s still got a love life.”
Power creator Courtney Kemp also gave Deadline some even more exciting news.
She said that Ghost would not stop there, revealing that there were plenty more series to come.
She said: “In my mind I have five or six seasons”.

How did Power Book 2 season 1 end?
The finale of Power Book II saw Tariq’s mother’s trial come to an end.
Summoned to court to testify for Tasha, Tariq ultimately turned on Cooper Saxe which led to her release into witness protection in exchange for testifying against Tommy Egan.
But Tasha’s plan was to go on the run with her family and free Tariq from Monet.
However, the queenpin vs queenpin scene didn’t last long and it was only a matter of time before we saw a Mustang speeding away at Monet’s spot.
Tariq intervened and him and uncle Tommy struk up a deal to fake Egan’s death and put an end to Saxe’s investigation.
But Tommy as we know never drops grudges and followed Tasha and Tariq to Ghost and Raina’s graveside to seek revenge.
Unfortunately for him, Tasha was rescued by witness protection, Tariq was saved by Monet and Tommy walked off into his own spin-off.
Tariq also finally won Cane over after pulling the trigger on professor Jabari Reynolds after he had been blackmailing the young St Patrick in exchange for cash.
Obviously, in true Power style Tariq left with the cash and left Reynolds to die.
When does the next Power spin-off air?
The next spin-off series to hit our screens will be Power Book III: Raising Kanan, which has been confirmed by US network Starz.
It will be released in Summer 2021 and will document 50 Cent’s character Kanan’s teenage years.
