Once again, we don’t have to wonder if Power Book III: Raising Kanan will be cancelled anytime soon since the Starz series has already been renewed for a third season. Could that be the end for this prequel series or will it run for many years to come? Stay tuned.
A family and crime drama series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan stars MeKai Curtis, Patina Miller, Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Hailey Kilgore, Joey Bada$$, Shanley Caswell, and Antonio Ortiz. Set in the 90s and South Jamaica, Queens, this show’s story revolves around the coming of age of Kanan Stark (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) of the original Power TV series. When we catch up with fifteen-year-old Kanan (Curtis) in the prequel, he is the only child of Raquel “Raq” Thomas (Miller), a cocaine distributor with an emerging network of dealers across the city. She’s a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature and her son is anxious to join his family’s growing business. In season two, Raq now controls the borough’s distribution. As her power grows, so does her appetite and she’s eager to expand the operation and sets her sights on New Jersey. But with new territory, comes new foes, and this time it’s the Jersey Mafia. As Raq looks to the Garden State, another battle brews back home: the fight for her son’s trust. Kanan escaped Queens after putting two bullets into the chest of Detective Malcolm Howard (Epps). But Kanan returns home to find that Howard and the dangerous secret he holds (he is Kanan’s father) are both alive and well.
