Courtney A. Kemp’s ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ For one reason, Tariq was chosen as the show’s focal point.
For years to come, power will dominate our television screens. The popular drama series follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a New York City drug lord who tried to go straight but was repeatedly drawn back into life. After six seasons, the spectacular series came to a thunderous end, but Power’s legacy lives on. The Power Universe continues to grow with four spinoffs on the way, including Power Book II: Ghost.
Power Book II: Ghost, as well as the upcoming Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Force, and Power Book V: Influence, are among the series’ spinoffs. Fans have already seen Power Book II: Ghost, which follows Ghost’s college-aged son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) following his death.
Though many fans felt that starring alongside Ghost’s best buddy and business partner Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) would be easier, Power creator Courtney A. Kemp chose Tariq first.
When Michael Rainey Jr. found out he would be directing ‘Power Book II: Ghost,’ he was taken aback.
Rainey has played Tariq since the first season of Power, when he was only 12 years old. Tariq began as a minor character in the early seasons of the show, but as time passed, he became a more prominent player. Rainey was still taken aback when he found that he’d be directing the first Power spinoff, Power Book II: Ghost.
Rainey told Ash London Live via Express, “We were in the middle of filming season six, I forget which episode it was, but [producer]50 Cent had just walked up on set one day.” “He was just standing there talking to everyone, and then he walked over to me and pulled me to the side, where we talked. ‘You know, as soon as you finish this, you’re going to be the star of your own program,’ he said. Because 50 Cent is known for his sarcasm, Rainey was taken aback. He recalled, “I was like, ‘All fine, anything.'”
