Drama series Power Book II: Ghost might only have kicked off on Starz a matter of weeks ago, but the show is already taking a break. The highly anticipated spin-off series to Power finally landed after a delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, which led to production shutting down. But now avid fans want to know when the show will be back on screens.
Why is Power Book 2 not on this week?
Fans could be waiting a little while for Power Book II: Ghost to make its big comeback.
The 10-part series is now on a midseason break with viewers left on tenterhooks for the next instalment.
Starz has confirmed the show will be coming back in December but there’s no word yet on when exactly.
Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.
Previous seasons of Power haven’t typically taken a midseason break apart from the final one, which was super-sized to 15 instalments.
The first 10 episodes played out with instalments airing weekly but the last five were aired after a hiatus in 2020.
There’s no reason why the show is going to be taking a break, but it could be down to the Starz schedule.
Alternatively, it could be more likely due to completing filming with only some of the season likely to have been shot.
The COVID-19 lockdown may only have led half the series to have been filmed and so the cast could be going back to shooting the rest.
Starz has also dropped an ominous trailer which harks back to Tariq St Patrick’s (played by Michael Rainey Jr) conversation while playing chess.
The teaser sees a giant chessboard with pieces getting smashed starting with the queen, which Tariq said was Monet Tejada (Mary J. Blige), while Cane (Woody McClain) was the rook, Dru (Lovell Adams-Gray) was the knight and Diana (LaToya Tonodeo) was the bishop.
This would suggest Tariq is eventually going to be taking out the Tejadas, however, time will tell if he is successful.

Monet is already highly suspicious of Tariq and thinks there’s more to the college student than he’s letting on.
Fans have been asking why Monet doesn’t know the truth about the Tariq and the fact his father was James “Ghost” St Patrick (Omari Hardwick).
The midseason finale left things on quite a cliffhanger after lawyer Davis Maclean (Cliff “Method Man” Smith) cut a shady deal with Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson) in which they planned to save Tasha St Patrick (Naturi Naughton) but at the expense of Tariq.
Tariq also had his hands full after he was given a loyalty test by Monet which he was trying to pass.
Speaking to TV Line about the pact between Saxe and Maclean, Power Book II: Ghost’s creator Courtney Kemp teased: “Saxe and MacLean’s deal to team up against Tariq will be tested.
“You’re putting two people who have been at each other’s throats all season together: How do you think that’s going to end?”
Kemp also addressed Tariq’s new alliance, saying: “Tariq is getting in more and more with the Tejadas at the same time as Cane is kind of starting to have a little bit more struggle with his mom, so — in his quest to find family and home and to continue to pay for his mom’s defense — you’re going to see Tariq keep up with Monet’s pace and yet deal with the fact that she still doesn’t trust anyone.
“He’s getting closer. You’re right, he’s getting more in. But she doesn’t trust him fully yet.”
The writer’s words suggest Tariq still has a long road ahead with the crime family but he’s slowly getting there.
