Power Book II: Ghost has solidified the Power Universe’s dominance on television. The drama series is the first spinoff in the franchise, and it opens following the events of the original Power. Following the murder of his father, James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) enrolls in the prestigious Stansfield University.
Juggling life as a college student so that he can eventually access his inheritance, Tariq is also strapped for cash at a time when his family needs it most. Tariq begins selling drugs on the university campus for the Tejada crime family to earn money to pay for his mother, Tasha St. Patrick’s (Naturi Naughton) criminal defense and to support his younger sister and grandmother.
Though Tariq enlists the help of his friend and roommate Brayden Westen (Gianni Paolo), it looks like the guys are going to have some major competition in season two of the series.
