Starz gave fans a first look at “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” in a teaser video that dropped after last week’s episode of “Power Book II: Ghost.” The teaser video for the upcoming series reveals a Summer 2021 premiere and transports fans into the world of the prequel story centered around the early years of the now-deceased iconic “Power” character Kanan Stark, set in ‘90s Southside Jamaica Queens, New York.
“Power” fans know how the story ended for Kanan, portrayed in the original series by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and the first official teaser starts to unveil how his story actually began. The video features a first-look at some of the characters that will be featured in the upcoming spin-off.
The digital photographs featured in the video, set to “Excursions” from legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, showcases the authenticity viewers can expect from the new series with characters sporting ‘90s clothing, accessories, and hairstyles true to the era.
