No one is safe in Power. The assassin nearly shot Ghost (Omari Hardwick) in the season 1 finale, Tasha (Naturi Naughton) is well aware of Ghost’s affair with Angela (Lela Loren), Angela has a partial sketch of Tommy (Joseph Sikora), Tommy knows that Angela is a lawyer working with the FBI and, on top of all that, Kanan (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) is out of prison and is especially determined to take out Ghost and Tommy so that he can regain control of their drug empire. Think that’s enough firepower to kick off an explosive second season?
With Power returning to Starz this weekend, I got the opportunity to sit down with Hardwick, Loren, Naughton, Sikora, 50 Cent and show creator and executive producer Courtney Kemp Agboh to talk about what’s to come in the new season. Check out what they said in the video interview below and keep an eye out for loads more coverage of Power season 2. The show returns to Starz on Saturday, June 6th at 9pm.
Here’s the official synopsis for Power season 2:
Season two picks up right where it left off: James “Ghost” St. Patrick doubling down on his drug business to save his nightclub and dream of a legitimate future. Ghost’s work troubles pale in comparison to juggling his relationship with his wife, Tasha, and his first love, Angela, who’s also an Assistant US Attorney investigating his drug organization.
Ghost is set further back from his dream by his business partner, Tommy, who loves the drug game, and his former mentor, Kanan, fresh out of jail and looking for revenge.
Season two has Ghost in a race against himself: Can he get out of the drug game alive before Angela discovers who he is?
