The first teaser for Power Book II has been released the day after the series concluded on Starz. In the new teaser, Mary J. Blige’s character, Monet, is introduced.
We also see the return of characters from the original series, Power, including Tasha (Naturi Naughton), Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr), Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson) and the introduction of Cliff “Method Man” Smith (played by Davis MacLean).
The plot of this spinoff is yet to be revealed but showrunner, Courtney Kemp has dished on some information.
“It will definitely have a lot of the same elements that you’re used to from Power in terms of criminality, sex, romance, and the legal system,” said Kemp.
She also shared some details about Blige’s character, Monet and what fans can hope to see from the show.
“We use all the power and presence of the actress to communicate how this is a woman who is remarkable and unique in her abilities,” Kemp said.
“She’s as smart, savvy, and strategic as Ghost ever was, but her learning doesn’t come from books. We always said Ghost was a bookish kid who read all the time. This woman’s acumen comes from the street.”
