Liv Symone, Aliyah Turner join the cast of Power Book II: Raising Kanan season 3.
Symone will recur as Iesha. The character is described as sweet and effervescent, the epitome of the girl next door, who sees the best in everyone. Turner will portray Krystal, a primped and pompous queen bee from the Bronx who will do whatever it takes to steal the spotlight.
They both join Jukebox (Hailey Kilgore) to become a girl group.
In Season 3, currently airing on Friday nights, emotions are high and the stakes even higher. The show returns to Southside Jamaica, Queens following the Season 2 finale, with the family in turmoil and reeling from the Mob’s coordinated attack on Raquel (Patina Miller), Marvin (London Brown) and Lou-Lou (Malcolm Mays).
Omar Epps, Joey Bada$$, Shanley Caswell, Tony Danza, Antonio Ortiz, Wendell Pierce, Erika Woods, Grantham Coleman and Paul Yen also star in the series. Starz has already renewed the show for a fourth season, and production is underway in New York.
The show, a part of the “Power” Universe, delves into Kanan’s transformation from a devoted son to a feared crime boss.
Power Book III: Raising Kanan is executive produced by Courtney A. Kemp through her production company End of Episode, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through G-Unit Film and Television, and Mark Canton through Atmosphere Entertainment MM. Showrunner Sascha Penn also EPs. Lionsgate Television produces the series for Starz.
Symone recently shot a guest star on the new BET series Diarra From Detroit and before that, was on Broadway with Disney’s Alladin. She also has a BFA from Howard University.
Turner is best known for her role in USA Network’s Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. She is represented by Brave Artists Management.
