He even shared an exciting trailer for the next show, keeping his promise from August of 2019. He declared that the next series would premiere 48 hours after the series finale. “Power Book II: Ghost” will air tomorrow (2/11/20) at 10PM.
Omari Hardwick shared his appreciation for the “Power” family he acquired over the past six years:
“@omarihardwickofficial The story became Shakespeare. & we would go on to shake up the sphere with some incredibly high #powered brains & talents of all colors, creeds, nationalities/genders (producers, network execs, writers, cast & crew included). We mixed it with the backdrop of Gotham city & it’s burroughs…gritty, pretty & thorough. And with a big dose of God & timing….& we caught a #vibe for the ages. We thank you, the FAN for ALL the time spent passionately flippin’ through them pages. & to ALL my fans….hoping i’d make it….hoping they’d faked it….no goodbye here…..only see ya lata…thank you for making my ghOst feel so sacred. And thank you @50cent @courtneyakemp @power_starz @vibemagazine again & again….for giving us these stages.”
Lela Loren and LaLa Anthony chimed in, sharing Omari’s sentiments:
“@misslloren The true power of POWER was getting the gift of seeing this collaboration of so so many move the hearts of our faithful, beautifully fanatical viewers; of watching everyone who was a part of it shift and grow under its electricity; and to be given the rare opportunity by @courtneyakemp @50cent @power_starz to soar, to fly alongside the dream. There is no bottom to my gratitude, thank you. And thank you @vibemagazine for the cover. From endings always come new beginnings.. and so it goes. Thank you all for taking this ride with us, and hope to see you on the next. Besos”
