The latest Power spin-off has already been renewed for a second season so fans should expect to see more misadventures from Kanan Stark (played by Mekai Curtis) next year. With the first season coming to an end this week on Starz, executive producer Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about what’s in store next time on the popular prequel series.
50 Cent has confirmed a number of classic Power characters could start cropping up in the next season of Raising Kanan.
Book III expanded the universe of the show even further after Book II: Ghost explored the life of Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) after he killed his father.
Chatting with Express.co.uk, 50 Cent indicated Ghost could eventually return in some capacity.
Having already been renewed for a second season, the Power prequel could bring in a number of younger versions of characters from the original series in the future.
He confirmed: “Not before the end of this season, but there’s a possibility to bring in young Ghost, young Tommy and Breeze.”
Season two is expected to air late next year, so casting could already be underway for a young James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick (originally played by Omari Hardwick).
There’s also a chance for the character first portrayed by Joseph Sikora, Tommy Egan, to appear after Ghost’s partner returns for his own spin-off series, Force.
Plus, although Breeze never physically appeared in the original six seasons of Power, the drug lord nevertheless made an undeniable impact on the events of the series.
“The Breeze character was my partner before I went away to jail,” 50 Cent explained.
“They killed him, they sent me to jail, then took over the business.”
Ghost had already killed Breeze well before the main events of the Starz drama.
The rival kingpin was taken out in his own apartment at some point in the mid-to-late 90s, so fans have been expecting him to make an appearance ever since the spin-off was announced.

Unfortunately, it seems Breeze may not become a series regular until Raising Kanan returns for its second season, or potentially beyond.
50 Cent assured viewers again: “Those characters could possibly pop up in Raising Kanan.”
The hip-hop legend also hopes his new series, Black Mafia Family, will offer a strong counterpoint once Raising Kanan’s debut season comes to an end.
“We’re already on a journey, it explains the monster you saw in me playing Kanan,” he continued. “The trauma, everything he’s gone through.”
“Look at the difference between the mom and pop in BMF vs. the mom in Raising Kanan. She’s like the source of all that.
“The other two parents are just horrified by the thought of kids even doing something like that.”
Executive produced by 50 Cent, the series follows the rise of one of Detroit’s most prominent crime families, with one of the members’ son, Demetrius Flenory Jr., portraying his own father.
Meanwhile, Power won’t be off screens for long after Book III’s season finale, with a new season of Ghost and Book IV: Force coming very soon.
Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 1 concludes Sunday, 26 on Starz.
