Starz announced today that Power Book II: Ghost has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just three episodes into the drama's sophomore run, which has gotten off to a solid start.

In its first week, the show garnered over 7 million multi-platform views, which ranks it as the cable network's most-watched new series of all time. The Starz app also got a boost during that time period, with subscriber acquisition climbing 42%.

The first spin-off series in the expanding Power universe, Power Book II: Ghost picks up shortly after the events in the final episode of Power. Tasha is facing charges for the murder Tariq committed. Tariq, meanwhile, is splitting his time between earning his inheritance by going to university and hustling to pay for the defense lawyer working to get his mom out of jail. This leads Tariq to the drug game and getting mixed up with a cutthroat family - and the realization that he must become a better version of his father in order to avoid meeting a similar fate.

Look for Season 2 of Power Book II: Ghost in 2021.
