There's good news and bad news on the horizon for fans of Power Book II: Ghost.


While there's a brand new fifth episode of the series now ready to stream, it's set to be the final episode for a little while as the series goes on a mid-season break. After episode 5, fans will have to wait patiently till September for answers to their burning questions and resolutions from the dramatic instalment.

The drama has only notched up further for the series, not least because it's set to be a climactic end to the Power spin-off. It's set to be the last season of Ghost, which was the first spin-off to have been released and also acts as a sequel to Power.

The show focuses on a new cast of characters led by Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) – the son of notorious drug dealer Ghost (Omari Hardwick) – as he follows in his father’s footsteps.

This being the last season of the spin-off will likely be sad news for fans of the series, especially as it's the only show (aside from the original series) to end thus far.

Th official synopsis for Power Book II: Ghost season 4 says: "In light of Season Three’s explosive finale, it’s Tariq St. Patrick and Brayden Weston against the world. With new alliances formed in each faction, Tariq and Brayden must find a way back into the game — and a way to insulate themselves from ever being put in the same situation again.

"But when Brayden starts flirting with a new, reckless lifestyle, Tariq wonders if there really is room for two at the top. Monet may have finally met her maker, but she has no idea who’s behind it.

"Davis, suspended and pending disbarment in the wake of his brother’s death, fully embraces the criminal side of his enterprise and finds himself working for both sides — his loyalty dependent on whichever will benefit him most. Faced with the reality that life can end in just a few ways, Effie buckles down on getting out and securing a legit future at Stanford.

"After last season’s betrayal, Diana and Dru question their roles in the game and the family business, while Cane sees an opportunity to level up when he starts working for Noma. As Noma fights to establish her business in the States, she also tries to keep a close eye on her bratty daughter, Anya, who is now on Tariq and Brayden’s radar.

"With the fate of his future in the game and his family at the forefront, Tariq must reconcile his past to rise to the top of the food chain and become who he needs to be to protect those he loves most."

Power Book II: Ghost seasons 1-3 are available to stream on STARZ in the US and on MGM+ through Prime Video in the UK. Season 4 is airing new episodes each Friday.
