Starz “Power: Ghost” just finished airing it’s 3rd season and the finale was iconic that social media cannot stop talking about it!!
The show was renewed for a 4th season but there’s one problem in the way of fans getting brand new episodes!
It was just announced that “Power: Ghost” is one of the series that’s affected by the current Writers Strike.
“The first spinoff in Starz’s Powerverse was attempting to shoot in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood, but everything came to a stand still when the WGA East’s swift moving Rapid Response Team arrived.”
The show was renewed in January!
Michael Ealy has joined the series for its fourth season in a series regular role.
Ealy joins the cast as Detective Don Carter, described as “a rising NYPD officer who was on track to become Police Commissioner, until his wife was killed in a crossfire between rival drug gangs. Vowing to make the streets safer, Carter traded in his tie for a kevlar vest and now leads an elite NYPD drug task force that elicits concrete results against drug related violence. While his achievements are noteworthy public recognition, nothing can bring back his lost love.”
