STARZPLAY UK Sets September UK Premiere Date For ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ & Releases Trailer
STARZPLAY UK has announced the continuation of the ‘Power’ franchise with ‘Power Book II: Ghost‘, will premiere Sunday, 6th September 2020 exclusively on the streaming service.
‘Ghost’ picks up shortly after the earth-shattering events of ‘Power’ as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed. Not to mention the academic rigours of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defence lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of getting out of jail and escaping prosecution by newly minted U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe. With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that’s been at it far longer than him. As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him – only better.
