Shortly after the American drama series, Power ended in 2020, the makers of the show announced a sequel to it. This is certainly very joyful for fans as they don’t have to wait for a long period to see what happens next. The end isn’t near yet!
Power Book II: Ghost
Power Book II: Ghost is the sequel that follows the crime-drama tv series, Power. The show aired on the Starz network for 6 seasons. Recently, after the series finale, the producers decided to drop-in the good news about the sequel. As the name suggests, fans can definitely expect the return of James “Ghost” St. Patrick.
In the spin-off, his killer and son will be seen carrying his legacy forward. With an already intense backdrop, Mary J Blige is on board to play the role of Monet. LaToya Tonodeo will be seen playing the role of her daughter, Diana.
The Mother-Daughter Relationship
In an interview, Tonodeo clarified that the relationship between Monet and Diana would be an intense one. She described it as being “far from perfect”. Further, she continued,
It’s like a push and pull, a tug of war, of sorts. Diana feels like she’s a young woman and she can do what she wants, make decisions on her own. But Monet is the boss, she runs the house. So it’s a realistic mother-daughter relationship.
However, Tonodeo assured that the spin-off will be just as interesting and gripping as the original one and that fans will not be disappointed. Finally, she answered one of the most anticipated questions, “How does Diana fit into Tariq’s life, and how does her introduction help the mother-son duo get acquitted?”
You will see him (Tariq) just navigating, trying to figure out how to make things work for his family, how to make things work for school. That’s all I’m gonna say!
She further hinted at the possibility of Diana and Tariq meeting at some university later in the show. There are also chances that the characters could share a romantic equation considering they are of the same age.
More about Diana
Speaking of her character, Tonodeo said that Diana is the princess of the family. She is intelligent but still has many things to learn about. She continued,
There’s like a really nice vulnerability about her that should not be taken as a weakness at all because she is definitely strong. I feel like a lot of the things that Diana possesses I have in myself.
Additionally, Tonodeo expressed about being very excited to work with Mary J Blige. She expressed that she finds it shocking to have received a role on her favorite show, nonetheless, play the part of Mary’s daughter too! Power Book II: Ghost premiered on 6th September. It airs every Sunday at 9/8c only on the Starz network.
