Power Book 3 on Starz

Power Book III: Raising Kanan premiered on Sunday, 18 July, on Starz in the US and on Starzplay via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.

The spin-off series is an origin story for the popular 50 Cent character, Power, and chronicles Kanan Stark’s life as he becomes a drug lord.

The series documents Stark’s life as an adolescent in South Jamaica, Queens.

When we catch up with Kanan here, he’s the 15-year-old only child of Raquel “Raq” Thomas, a cocaine distributor with an emerging network of dealers across the city.

The prequel did not hold back from showing us that Kanan’s teenage life was just as violent as his adult life.

On the second episode of the series, which premiered on Sunday, 25 July, bodies have already started to pile up.

However, despite knowing what Kanan becomes and how he meets his ultimate fate, executive producer and narrator 50 Cent has promised that Power Book III: Raising Kanan will still surprise fans.

He told Radio Times: “You feel like you already know but it gets better, because you feel like you already know what to expect from Power but there’s new stuff.”

Power Book III: Raising Kanan will be airing new episodes weekly on Sundays until the season finale on 19 September 2021.

Who is Toni Deep?

Toni Deep is a character from Power Book 3 portrayed by actress AnnaLynne Mccord.

Toni is a big name of the new club scene by night, and an Upper East Side publicist by day.

She first appeared on Power Book 3 during the series’ first episode, as the owner of Lanes Nightclub.

Raq (Patina Miller) heads to Lanes Nightclub in an effort to convince Toni to let her use the club as a cover for her crew to sell drugs from.

Since Toni was reluctant to let Raq use the club for her illicit dealings, the drug dealer sends her a strong – and horrific – message.

In a bid to assert her power over Toni, Raq orders the death (by microwave) of Toni’s beloved pet pooch.

Having the dog killed sent a message to Toni and to viewers while giving a nod to The Godfather‘s horse beheading.

In an interview with TV Line, Patina Miller said of that scene: “We only use violence to tell the story and only if it propels the narrative and moves things along.

“The dog’s death was symbolic of something bigger.”
