‘Power Book II: Ghost’: Season 3 Has Begun Filming

Power Book II: Ghost has only two episodes left before the season finale and fans are on edge. Tariq’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) freedom is hanging in the balance as he’s been put on trial for murder. It looks like he’s also lost his sister Yasmine forever. Moreover, Diana Tejada (LaToya Tonodeo) just exposed her entire family for their secrets and lies.

Thankfully, season 3 of Ghost is on the horizon and filming has already begun.

What will ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Season 3 be about?

At the beginning of Power Book II: Ghost Season 2, Starz announced that the series had been renewed for season 3. “The continued success and cultural resonance of the Power universe is unprecedented, and fans are clearly still hungry for more Power Book II: Ghost,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President, and CEO at Starz. With Power Universe creator Courtney Kemp headed to Netflix, former Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney will be taking over as showrunner for season 3.

Though season 2 has not yet ended, we do know that we are expected to learn more about Effie’s (Alix Lapri) backstory in season 3. Moreover, we are expected to see some familiar Power faces and Keesha Sharp has joined the cast as a new professor at Stansfield.

More excitedly, we will meet Monet’s (Mary J. Blige) sister Leah, the woman who raised Zeke (Daniel Bellomy).

‘Ghost’ Season 3 has begun filming in New York

Initially, the third season of Ghost was supposed to begin filming in New York City just after the holidays. However, the start date continued to get pushed back amid the Omicron coronavirus (COVID-19) surge. Thankfully, numbers are falling and it appears that season 3 of Ghost is finally underway.

During an Instagram Live on Jan. 25, Power Universe creator Courtney Kemp chatted with LaToya Tonodeo about Diana’s big episode. During their chat, the creator/writer/ producer also asked Tonodeo how her first day back filming was. Tonodeo responded that everything went really smoothly.

We’re just glad to know that Diana will be alive to see season 3.

How will ‘Power Book II: Ghost’: Season 2 end?

Episode 208, “Drug Related” was absolutely explosive. Tariq and the Tejadas robbed Mecca (Daniel Sunjata) and we’re almost certain he’s going to find out they did it. Diana exposed her family’s secrets, including Zeke’s (Daniel Sunjata) parentage and real age which got Monet kicked out of the family home. Finally, Carrie Milgram (Melanie Liburd) died after her reputation was shattered on the stand by Davis McLean (Clifford “Method Man” Smith).

The final two episodes of the season will certainly be dealing with the fallout of all of this. Moreover, Kemp says that there will be another big death before it’s all over. The season 2 finale is titled, “Love and War.” The official description reads, “Tariq refuses to give up on his loved ones. Tariq must help Monet save her own family. Monet, finally seeing the whole board, must move quickly to protect her family from Mecca.”

However season 2 ends, we’re certain that fans are going to be stunned.
