Who Does Michael Ealy Play In Power Book II: Ghost Season 4?

Starz struck gold with its crime drama series "Power," created by Courtney A. Kemp and produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. That series may have ended in 2020, but it's living on a big way with a slew of spin-off series that are definitely worth your time. The first of these to emerge was "Power Book II: Ghost," which premiered later in 2020 and was renewed for a fourth season in January 2023.

There are many directions for Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) to take in the upcoming season, and there's going to be some fresh blood, as well, with the addition of Michael Ealy in the cast. Ealy's no stranger to the world of film or television, with high-profile roles in "Think Like a Man" and "The Intruder." Variety has the lowdown on his character, namely Detective Don Carter, an NYPD officer with his sights set on becoming Police Commissioner. After losing his wife to rival gang crossfire, he's vowing to make the streets safer, which is bound to put him at odds with the underhanded dealings of this bunch of criminals.

Starz is ecstatic to get Michael Ealy onboard Power Book II: Ghost

Variety reports that Michael Ealy's character will be a "series regular role," so it's safe to say he's going to play an integral role in the next batch of episodes. Given the fact the previous three seasons had 10 episodes a piece, it'd be natural to assume Season 4 will follow that path, but there hasn't been any official confirmation on that front at this time. 

Ealy has numerous credits under his belt, so it's safe to say he'll bring a level of gravitas to the role. And it's not just fans excited to see him join the world of "Power." Kathryn Busby, president of original programming for Starz, told Variety how excited everyone was to get production underway on Season 4 before Season 3 even premiered. And when it came to Ealy's casting, she had this to say, "It's clear our fans are ready to devour more of this explosive series and we look forward to having Michael join our incredible cast."

Of course, it may take some extra time for fans to see those episodes. Production on Season 4 halted in May due to the WGA East strike, which has brought numerous series to a standstill. But seeing Michael Ealy attempt to enforce the law on "Power Book II: Ghost" is bound to be worth the wait.
