Tariq will be a changed man in ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Season 3

Over the course of the original Power and certainly within the first two seasons of Ghost, fans have watched Tariq mature and grow. He’s certainly not perfect, but he is no longer the annoying teenager who acted out when he didn’t get his way.

Now, Power Universe creator Courtney Kemp has explained that Tariq is slowly transforming into the last person he would have wanted, his father James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick).

 “A lot of you guys are constantly talking about Ghost coming back,” she said during an Instagram Live “Without going into super detail, what I will definitely say is that part of the reason why I started writing this show was about my father’s death. The thing about that and what I’m really trying to demonstrate is that Tariq is Ghost on earth. Tariq is Ghost alive. He is learning things and changing before our very eyes. Tariq is growing into a man.”

She also hinted that Tariq will be very different in season 3. “He’s going to go through some changes,” she explained. “He’s going to be really alone.”

‘Power Book II: Ghost’: Season 3 will be intense

According to IMDb, Power Book II: Ghost Season 3 will begin airing on November 20, 2022. Moreover, CT insider is reporting that the series filming some intense scenes at a Motel 6 in Westchester, New York. We have no idea what’s in store for the characters moving forward, but we know it will be nothing to sneeze at.

“There will be fault lines drawn between Tariq and his friends, for various reasons,” Kemp explained to Entertainment Weekly. “And then those will affect some fault lines that will be drawn within the Tejada family. There will be a series of earthquakes, and then a series of aftershocks that will shake the foundation and remake the series in a really sort of impactful way. That’s season 3.”

Here’s what fans can expect from ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Season 3

As fans of the Power Universe know, things are kept under wraps when filming. However, we do know that Tariq will be dealing with the fallout from Effie (Alix Lapri) and Brayden’s (Gianni Paolo) involvement with Lauren’s (Paige Hurd) death. Moreover, the college student x drug dealer is going to need to find a way to get out from under the Tejada crime family.

Rainey hinted at some of the things that fans can expect. “To be honest with you, I have no clue,” he told PopSugar. “I just know that Tariq’s going to be making some money and obviously he’s going to be fighting a lot, because he’s trying to figure out what’s going on with Lauren and how her situation went because he doesn’t really know what happened. Then, like we said, between Brayden and Effie, they’re trying to hold that truth for him. So that’s going to be another thing to unfold. It’s going to be a lot going on.”
