Though the finale will be the last Raising Kanan episode until mid-to-late 2022, season 2 is already underway. Starz renewed Raising Kanan for Season 2 before the show even premiered. “One season isn’t enough to tell the coming of age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said in a statement via Entertainment Weekly. “The anticipation globally for more of the Power Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”
Season 2 is currently being filmed in New York and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has hinted at what’s to come. He teased that the elusive Breeze, a young Ghost, and a young Tommy could appear in the latter half of season 2. “Those characters could possibly pop up in Raising Kanan,” 50 Cent told Express. “We’re already on a journey, it explains the monster you saw in me playing Kanan. The trauma, everything he’s gone through.”
