Power Book III: Raising Kanan is set in South Jamaica, Queens in 1991 and follows Kanan Stark’s (Mekai Curtis) coming-of-age story.

The cast also includes Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Hailey Kilgore, Joey Badass, Toby Sandeman, Shanley Caswell, Lovie Simone and Quincy Brown.

“One season isn’t enough to tell the coming of age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” Starz’s President and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said in a statement. “The anticipation globally for more of the ‘Power’ Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”

The first season of the show is set to premiere on July 18.
