*The second half of season 2 of “Power Book II: Ghost” kicked off in November and picked up with Tariq navigating his new life, in which his desire to shed his father’s legacy comes up against the mounting pressure to save his family.
As reported by The Blast, “showrunner Courtney Kemp could write an emotional death scene into the script,” as she did with the “Power” series. Per the outlet, below are four characters that might not continue in the next season.
Dante Mecca Spears (portrayed by Daniel Sunjata)
Having watched over 15 episodes of “Power Book II: Ghost,” fans already know that Mecca, played by Daniel Sunjata, is one of the main antagonists of the series.
The drug dealer has many tricks in his bag, which he uses in navigating the criminal world. More so, his manipulative and dangerous persona, anchored on nerves of steel, sets him apart from the underlings he ruthlessly controls.
Lorenzo Tejada Sr. (portrayed by Berto Colon)
Lorenzo started the series as a drug lord, locked away for a crime. He left his business to Monet and his sons, Dru and Cane. Although the trio tried their best to maintain the same status quo before Lorenzo’s conviction, things went topsy-turvy from time to time.
On several occasions, Lorenzo had to prove from behind the prison walls that he could still pull some strings to steady his boat. While his actions helped course-correct the issues, it strained his relationship with his children and Monet, who was warming their bed with another man.

Dru Tejada (portrayed by Lovell Adams-Gray)
Dru appears to be the cool head out of the Tejada males. His mannerisms clearly show he is not interested in the drug game. However, he understands he could never abandon his family business.
Lorenzo envisions that Dru will take over from him if he eventually dies. As such, he is slowly but surely grooming Dru to handle the ropes, neglecting Cane, who he feels is too hot-headed, impulsive, and would be bad for business.
Monet Stewart Tejada (portrayed by Mary J. Blige)
Monet has tried to be the glue that holds the Tejada family and their business. However, the cracks in her armor are getting bigger with each passing episode, placing her in a risky position.
For one, her strained relationship with her son Cane left her without much protection since he also acted as her right-hand man and protector. Her dalliance with some characters in the series might also blow up in her face following Lorenzo’s release from prison.
UPDATE – Well, we now know that you can at least cross Mary J. Blige (Monet Tejada) OFF the list ’cause she’s already at work on season 3. Via Instagram 50 Cent posted a pic of Mary and Method Man on set as they’ve already started filming Season 3!

With Season 2 of Power Book II: Ghost‘s finale set for this Sunday (January 30), 50 Cent isn’t wasting any time in moving to the next Power operation. Power Book IV: Force is set to debut on February 6 to keep the STARZ dominance going.
Power Book IV: Force centers around the character Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), who fled NYC to leave all of the Ghost drama behind him and start a new life in Chicago. 50 teamed up with Chitown natives Jeremih and Lil Durk for the spin-off’s theme song.
Before we go, via the player immediately above is a sneak peek at a scene from Episode 9 (season 2-ender). It features Zeke and Mecca having a formal sit-down following their brief interaction in episode seven. Mecca admits to knowing about Zeke’s intimate relationship with Professor Milgram and lets him know that Monet doesn’t have to be completely out of his life if he doesn’t want her to be.
