Courtney Kemp of Power Book III: Raising Kanan EP claims that Tommy and Ghost are not invited to this prequel.

Fans of the franchise who anticipated meeting the younger selves of Ghost and Tommy in Book III: Raising Kanan, the prequel to Power, will have to keep dreaming. The events of this story occur after the characters' bedtimes.

Instead, a 15-year-old Kanan (played by Kirby Buckets' Mekai Curtis) will expose fans to a gritty world full of stick-up youngsters, corner boys, and queen- and kingpins in 1991's Jamaica, Queens, when the canon's third entry premieres this Sunday at 8/7c on Starz. 

Although she and her brothers are street-life legends, Kanan's mother Raq (Madam Secretary's Patina Miller) is a drug kingpin who wants better for her book-smart son.

 According to executive producer Courtney Kemp, who also produced the original series, "Power fans have been begging for a prequel for a really long time." "A lot of folks believed they desired to view Tommy and Ghost as young children. 

But I don't find that to be a compelling tale. You can be sure that Tommy and Ghost will survive. Kemp elaborates, "We actually enter what 50 Cent considers the golden era of drug selling in South Jamaica Queens." 

You get to travel back in time, and I found this to be a lot more engaging method of doing it.

 Kemp also notes that Power Book III takes place when the two are still in primary school and that the Kanan character is five years older than his future proteges/betrayers. She adds firmly that while urban dramas like The Wire do explore child criminals, this isn't that kind of program.

Kemp complains, "I just detest being questioned about Ghost and Tommy in the prequel." "At the beginning of this series, Ghost and Tommy are both 10 years old.

 They are young children in the fifth grade, so we don't need to be having a conversation about them right now. And I am aware that everyone in the Power universe will be asking, "Where are Ghost and Tommy? " However, this is not the tale of how Ghost and Tommy met. 

That is dull. She enquires, "Who cares? "It's not exciting if you think about it. It's not a novel tale to tell, so I rolled my eyes. I'll constantly reminding them that their long division is unstable and that they are 10 years old. 

They have protractors and Trapper Keepers. They haven't yet entered the game. They are still actively playing games.
