Starz Renews 'Power Book II: Ghost' for Season 4

Ahead of the drama airing its third season later this year, Starz has today renewed its original drama series Power Book II: Ghost for a fourth season. Moreover, Michael Ealy (Being Mary Jane, Reasonable Doubt) has joined the cast as a new series regular for Season 4.

The drama stars Michael Rainey Jr., Shane Johnson, Gianni Paolo, Lovell Adams-Gray, Woody McClain, LaToya Tonodeo, Paton Ashbrook, Berto Colon, Alix Lapri, Larenz Tate, Keesha Sharp, David Walton, Monique Curnen, Moriah Brown, Method Man and Mary J. Blige.

Ealy will play Detective Don Carter, a rising NYPD officer who was on track to become Police Commissioner, until his wife was killed in a crossfire between rival drug gangs. Vowing to make the streets safer, Carter traded in his tie for a kevlar vest and now leads an elite NYPD drug task force that elicits concrete results against drug related violence. While his achievements are noteworthy public recognition, nothing can bring back his lost love.

Courtney A. Kemp created the drama, with Brett Mahoney serving as showrunner for the third season. They executive produce with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Mark Canton, Chris Selak and Geary McLeod. Lionsgate Television, G-Unit Film & Television and End of Episode produce.

"The high-octane drama of Power Book II: Ghost continues to resonate with our viewers and we're thrilled to get season four production underway ahead of our season three debut," said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming, Starz. "It's clear our fans are ready to devour more of this explosive series and we look forward to having Michael join our incredible cast."
