Power: Showrunner confirms season 6 newcomer to return in spin-offs 'Definitely' 1

James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick) may have been the focal point of Power for six seasons on Starz before his death but it doesn’t mean the story will not live on. Showrunner Courtney Kemp confirmed after the divisive Power finale that the universe will continue in the form of four spin-off shows with several familiar faces returning.

Power Book II: Ghost will centre around Ghost’s son and his murderer Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) as he deals with the guilt of killing his own father.

Book III: Raising Kanan will act as a sequel, giving fans an insight into the younger years of terrifying drug dealer Kanan (50 Cent).

Book IV: Influence focuses on disgraced politician Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) while the final series, Book V: Force, sees Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) continue life without his best friend.

While the lead characters for each series have been confirmed, speculation surrounding secondary faces has been rife, with fans wondering if they’ll be able to see their favourite Power characters back on screens.

Luckily, showrunner Courtney Kemp has added come comfort for fans as she hinted at returns for a number of characters on Instagram in recent weeks.

Kemp has hinted there could be a surprise return for LaKeisha (La La Anthony), admitting she’d “love” to work with the actor again.

Ramona (Cynthia Addai Robinson) could also be back as Kemp confessed she “has plans for her.”

And now it looks like a season six debutant could also be returning in the spin-offs after Courtney addressed rumours surrounding Tate’s family.

Speaking on an Instagram live Q&A last month, one fan wanted to know if Kamaal Tate (Lahmard J Tate) would be back.

He only appeared in one episode of Power season six but proved to be a hugely popular character thanks to his no-nonsense attitude towards his brother.

Courtney read aloud on Instagram: “Will Tate’s brother play a bigger role in Power?

“I hope so, I hope so, I would like that very much.”
