Starz announced today that Power Book III: Raising Kanan has been renewed for a fifth season. It's a very early pickup, coming less than two months after the prequel series finished airing Season 3. The fourth season is currently filming.

"We know that our fans can't get enough of 'Raising Kanan.' As the inevitable evolution of this young man into a killer plays out, we knew we had much more backstory to share in this ever-escalating family saga," said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming for Starz. "As we continue to expand the storytelling within the Power universe, we're looking forward to how this story may intersect with other Power characters during this prequel era."

Set in the 1990s, the series follows fifteen-year-old Kanan Stark, who lives in Jamaica, Queens. An intelligent and driven young man, Kanan's 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.
