Gbenga Akinnagbe, Kyle Vincent Terry, Caroline Chikezie to Recur on Season 3 of Power Book II: Ghost

Gbenga Akinnagbe, Kyle Vincent Terry and Caroline Chikezie are set to recur on season three of Power Book II: Ghost.

Season three picks up after the explosive finale of season two in which Monet was informed her nephew/son Zeke was dead. Also, Zeke’s father Daniel Sunjata’s Mecca/Danté Spears was also found dead by his handler, NYPD detective Blanca Rodriguez (Monique Gabriela Curnen). Her return surprised Power fans as she was a character from the franchise’s original series Power.

Akinnagbe will play Ron Samuel Jenkins aka RSJ, a Howard University and Harvard Business School alum who grew up working class and built his own legitimate empire that has firmly entrenched him among the business elite.

Terry will portray Obi, a young man schooled in Britain who knows his way around a gun, but is equally comfortable in a boardroom.

Chikezie is Noma, a worldly and powerful woman with a regal presence who has built her wealth with an illicit global empire and is not afraid to protect it by any means necessary.

They join returning cast members: Mary J. Blige, Shane Johnson, Gianni Paolo, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Larenz Tate, Berto Colon, Woody McClain, Lovell Adams-Gray, LaToya Tonodeo, Alix Lapri and Paton Ashbrook. As well as previously cast new series regulars David Walton, Moriah Brown, Monique Garbiela Curnen and Keesha Sharp.

It has also been announced that Lethal Weapon star Keesha Sharp will be joining season three as a recurring character in a major role. Sharp will play Professor Harper Bonet, “a progressive intellectual and boho beauty” (via Deadline). As production ramps up, we could expect more cast announcements.

The Power series is executive produced by Kemp through her production company End of Episode, Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television, and Mark Canton through Atmosphere Entertainment MM.
