“Power Book II: Ghost” has been designated as the first story in the series of spinoffs based on the “Power” drama that concluded in six seasons. The viewers and even its producers find it regretful that the show is ending, but they can’t extend it either.

“Power obviously is a masculine show but has very strong female characters,” Kemp told Entertainment Weekly. “For Mary’s character, we use all the power and presence of the actress to communicate how this is a woman who is remarkable and unique in her abilities. She’s as smart, savvy, and strategic as Ghost ever was, but her learning doesn’t come from books but the streets.”
