Raising Kanan | New Cast, Origin Story, and More from Power Book III

You probably enjoy Power, the Starz smash that lasted from 2014 to 2020, if you enjoy high-stakes family drama mixed with corporate and political intrigue like Succession and Empire. If you haven’t been keeping up with the offshoot series that Power has inspired, now might be the perfect moment to do so and return to the Power universe. Along with Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book IV: Force, Power Book III: Raising Kanan is one of the spin-off series from Power that is about to begin its second season.

In the prequel television series Raising Kanan, Kanan Stark, by 50 Cent in the first Power, is during his adolescent years. Ghost, the first Power series protagonist, has Kanan as a rival and former buddy. Watching Kanan’s climb is still exciting even after knowing how his narrative ends.
