“Tariq, are you fundamentally good or bad?”
That’s the question presented in a new trailer for Power Book II: Ghost, which returns for its midseason premiere on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 8/7c, Starz has announced. Season 1’s first five episodes will air back-to-back ahead of the show’s return, starting at 2:45 pm ET/PT on Dec. 6.
Picking up shortly after the events of Power, the spinoff follows Tariq St. Patrick as he “grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed,” per the official synopsis. “Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of getting out of jail and escaping prosecution by newly minted U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe.
“With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that’s been at it far longer than him. As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.”
