Starz announced today that Power Book III: Raising Kanan has been renewed for Season 2. The good news comes less than a week before the prequel series premieres on the cable network.

Set in the 1990s, the show follows fifteen-year-old Kanan Stark, who lives in Jamaica, Queens and is an intelligent and driven young man. His world revolves around his mother, who is a cocaine distributor with a network of dealers around the city. She doesn't want her son to follow in her footsteps, but Kanan wants to be just like his mom. He's naive and doesn't understand how the hustle works, which makes their relationship more complicated over time.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan premieres on Sunday, July 18 at 8:00pm. Season 2 will likely return in mid 2022.
