Now that the final season of the original “Power” series has officially wrapped up, it’s time to meet the cast of the upcoming “Power Book II: Ghost” series. The talented Woody McClain will be joining the cast and several more familiar faces. Find out who else is starring in the “Power” spin-off inside…

After a whole season of wondering WHO SHOT GHOST, now we know!

 

*SPOILER ALERT* in case you haven’t watched yet:

 

…It was his own son, Tariq St. Patrick (played by Michael Rainy Jr.)

Ghost got in Tariq's way, so he took him out the game. His mom Tasha St. Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton) tried to stop Tariq before he pulled the trigger, but she was too late.

Tasha came up with a plan to frame her boytoy for Ghost's murder in an effort to protect her son, but it all blew up in her face when he had a confirmed alibi, something he made sure of because he never quite trusted her. Bloop.

The cops swarmed in and locked Tasha up and the next chapter will follow life for everyone, post-Ghost. The sequel will follow Tariq navigating his new life, in which his desire to shed his father’s legacy comes up against the mounting pressure to save his family.

Even in death, Ghost still won. He didn't leave Tasha a dime, he paid one year's worth rent for Tasha's mother, broke Angela Valdez's family off with hella cash, made sure Tommy Egan and his mother were straight, and he left his entire empire (worth millions) to his son - WITH a catch. In his will, he stated that Tariq must graduate from a four-year college with at least a 3.5 GPA before he can touch any of the money and assets left in his name. Damn.

Michael Rainey Jr., Naturi Naughton and Shane Johnson (who plays Cooper Saxe) will be reprising their role in “Power Book II: Ghost” from series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Additional returning cast from “Power” includes “Tariq’s” dorm-mate, Brayden played by Gianni Paolo (Ma, “The Fosters”), and NYC’s favorite defense attorney Tameika Washington played by Quincy Tyler Bernstine (“Ray Donovan,” “Modern Love”).

As you know, singer/actress Mary J. Blige and rapper/actor Method Man were previously announced to join the spin-off series. Mary's character Monet is a very successful woman/mother in Queens who runs her business “with an iron fist." It seems she will become the female version of Ghost.

Method Man's character Davis Maclean is an ambitious and savvy attorney who is attracted to the NYC underworld run by Mary's character. He may find himself entrapped by some secrets from his past.

So, who else is joining the cast? Several familiar faces.

New to the cast is Woody McClain (“The Bobby Brown Story,” “The New Edition Story”) as Cane Tejada, Daniel Bellomy (The Real MVP: The Wanda Durrant Story) as Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ Cross, Paige Hurd (“The Oval,” “Hawaii Five-O”) as Lauren, Melanie Liburd (“This is Us,” “Gypsy”) as Caridad ‘Carrie’ Milgram, Justin McManus (“Star”) as Jabari Reynolds,” Lovell Adams-Gray (“Coroner,” “Slasher”) as Dru Tejada, and LaToya Tonedeo (“The Oath”) as Diana Tejada.

There are actually FOUR "Power" spin-offs in total coming down the pipeline. Here's the breakdown of the other three spin-offs:

Here’s the break down:

“POWER BOOK III: RAISING KANAN” – the prequel story that takes viewers back to the ‘90s and the early years of iconic “Power” character Kanan Stark (played by 50 Cent).

“POWER BOOK IV: INFLUENCE” which follows Rashad Tate (played by Larenz Tate) in his ruthless pursuit of political power.

“POWER BOOK V: FORCE” in which fans will ride along with Tommy Egan (played by Joseph Sikora) after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good.
