Power Book III: Raising Kanan Plot and Cast
After Kanan’s failed assassination attempt on Detective Malcolm Howard in season one, the Thomas family will have to cope with the aftermath, especially since the episode concluded with Howard waking up having survived the bullet. Howard’s choice will have a major impact on the futures of several individuals, including his son Kanan if he chooses to cooperate with Raq’s plot to frame Unique for the murder.
Because the bloody jacket was put in Unique’s apartment, he was arrested for the shooting and now wants vengeance, which is bad news for Marvin, who was detained on drug charges. We’ll get a deeper look into Jukebox’s other family when Kenya joins the program in season two, and Marvin will have an anger management therapist to help him with that. Kanan appears to be secure in Maryland for the time being, but this is not likely to stay.
We anticipate Kanan to be back in South Jamaica, Queens, soon, creating further problems for Raq if he doesn’t try to carry on his criminal operations in Maryland.
Now talking to the cast, it includes Mike Curtis as a young Kanan Stark and Patina Miller as his manipulative mother Raq is likely to reprise their roles in Power Book III: Raising Kanan. Malcolm Mays will play Lou-Lou, London Brown will play Marvin, and Hailey Kilgore will play Jukebox, the musically inclined daughter of Marvin.
In addition, Joey Badass, Toby Sandeman, and Shanley Caswell will reprise their roles as Raj’s love interest Symphony, his drug-dealing competitor Unique, Detective Shannon Burke, and others.
