The original Power drama ended after six series last year, resulting in Ghost (played by Omari Hardwick) being killed off. This led to the announcement of four spin-off series which would be about some of the Starz drama’s other key characters. However, it may not be the end of Ghost’s story just yet, according to showrunner Courtney Kemp.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Power.
Will Ghost make a comeback?
Ghost was killed in the final season of Power when he was shot and fell from Truth nightclub’s balcony.
The shooter wasn’t revealed for several episodes, leaving fans questioning who could have pulled the trigger.
But in the final ever episode, it was discovered that it was actually Ghost’s son Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) who killed him.
His mum took the fall though and went to prison on his behalf so Tariq could go to college and get an education.
Ever since Ghost was killed off, fans have been questioning if he is really dead.
There have been theories about not seeing his body at the funeral and how it could have been staged so Ghost could disappear for a while as he had made himself so many enemies.
Showrunner Kemp did confirm his death during an Instagram Live Q&A last year.
She told viewers: “I can’t speak to if it will always be that way.
“Certainly it was written and intended for it to be that way that Ghost is dead.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kemp did however tease the future of Ghost, along with several other developments for the Power franchise.
The article reads: “Kemp is percolating a Better Call Saul-type story centered on Ghost’s lawyer Joe Proctor (Jerry Ferrara); one-off movies; a Christmas special; and even “a plan” for the dearly departed Ghost.”
So if Ghost is in fact dead, how is he going to become part of the future of the Power universe?
One idea could be a series focused on Ghost’s dad who also ran a nightclub, making it the second prequel of the franchise.

Kemp explained that she took inspiration from Marvel’s Avenger series when she and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson came up with the spin-off series.
She said: “Looking at Marvel, they don’t announce a title, they announce a phase — it’s about building anticipation.
“Multiple people said it would never work and didn’t believe in it.
“As a woman of colour, I think I’m doubted all the time.
“No matter who it is, Power was an incredibly successful show — why wouldn’t spin-offs work?”
“I have no doubt that Kanan and Force are going to be huge hits.
“Marvel didn’t come out of the gate with Ant-Man, right?”
The next spin-off to come out is Power Book III: Raising Kanan starring Mekai Curtis as a young Kanan Stark.
The 10-episode series will start on Sunday, July 18 on Starz, taking a look back at where it all began for the drug dealer.
The next series to came out is season two of Power Book II: Ghost which may be out sometime this fall.
The Power franchise is available to watch on Starz.
