Power Book 2 fans were left concerned when episode 6 didn’t air on October 11th, leaving many to wonder if Power Book 2 has been cancelled.

It was a sad moment when Power left our screens in February 2020.

After six gripping seasons, the enthralling crime drama had won over fans across the globe.

Luckily, that wouldn’t be the last we saw of Power as September 2020 brought us the first of several spin-off shows, Power Book II: Ghost.

The opening episode of this new series arrived on Starz on September 6th and episodes began airing weekly.

However, after episode 5 aired on October 4th, fans have been left waiting for episode 6, with many starting to wonder if Power Book 2 has been cancelled.

Power Book 2 arrived on Starz in the US on September 6th, 2020.

The spin-off show is a sequel to the original Power series and follows on from the events of season 6, with only a few weeks having passed since we last caught up with Tariq and Tasha St. Patrick after the death of James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick at the end of season 6.

Is Power Book 2 cancelled?

  • No, Power Book 2 is not cancelled.

The reason why episode 6 did not air on October 11th is because the show is taking a mid-season break.

According to the Express, filming on Power Book 2 was delayed thanks to the lockdowns imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, only half of the season was ready to air by September and more filming will have to be completed in order to get the remaining episodes ready.

When will episode 6 arrive?

Episode 6 of Power Book 2 will air at some point in December.

The exact release date has not yet been revealed.

However, fans can look forward to five more episodes as the season is expected to contain 10 episodes in total.

Beyond that, Power Book 2 has also been renewed for a second season already so while there may be a delay now, there is plenty more to come.

Power Book 2: Ghost began airing weekly on Starz and StarzPlay after premiering on September 6th, 2020 but is now on a mid-season hiatus until December.
