‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan’ Nabs Early Starz Renewal  

Starz, which cleaned house during Hollywood’s dual strikes, is reinforcing its roster.

The Lionsgate-backed premium cable network has renewed Power Book III: Raising Kanan for a fourth season mere days before the third cycle of the spinoff series returns.

“We’re thrilled to continue Kanan Stark’s story, and for fans to see how the events of his formative adolescent years continue to mold him into the cold-hearted villain they were first introduced to in Power. We are quite sure that after viewers see the battle lines being drawn between Raq and Kanan on this epic upcoming third season that they will demand more,” said Kathryn Busby, president of original programming at Starz.

Production on the fourth installment is under way, with season three launching Dec. 1.

Raising Kanan is the third spinoff in the Power franchise from creatives Courtney Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Sascha Penn returns as showrunner for season four after Kemp decamped her Lionsgate TV overall deal for a rich pact at Netflix. She remains involved as a non-writing exec producer in the lucrative franchise.

MeKai Curtis, Patina Miller and Omar Epps lead the cast of Raising Kanan.

Raising Kanan is part of a roster of originals at Starz that also includes Power spinoffs Ghost and Force. The cabler recently axed Blindspotting, Heels, Run the World and rookie The Venery of Samantha Bird as part of a content overhaul as Starz, like other networks and streamers, reduces its investment in scripted amid the industry-wide content contraction. The cabler also has Black Mafia Family, Hightown, Outlander and its spinoff, P-Valley and Shining Vale.
