'Power' Prequel Series Finds Its Star: Patina Miller!

The upcoming Power prequel series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, just found its star!

Tony Award-winner Patina Miller is set to star in the upcoming series, Deadline reported on Wednesday (February 19).

She will play Raquel Thomas.

Here’s a character description: “To the streets, Raquel ‘Raq’ Thomas is cold, hard, and fierce; a successful and deadly woman taking names in a man’s world. She is tough, resolute, ruthless and yet, Raq is still capable of love. Great love. The sole recipient of that affection is her son, Kanan – he is everything to her. As much as she cares for him though, there are many instances where one wonders if she loves him for who he is, or if she loves him merely as an extension of herself. The middle child of three, Raq also carries the heavy burden as the earner for her two brothers. Raq is the sun, and everyone else in her universe exists in her orbit.”

Power Book III is a prequel set in the ’90s, centering around the early years of Kanan Stark, originally portrayed by 50 Cent.

Here’s what to expect from the other Power spin-off shows…
