Shady lawyer Cooper Saxe (played by Shane Johnson) is still after Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) and his family in the latest instalment of Power Book II: Ghost. While Tariq struggles to shake off the legacy of his father, James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (Omari Hardwick), Johnson hinted the New York crime lord could eventually return in an exclusive chat with Express.co.uk.
Johnson has revealed Hardwick is still interested in returning to the Power franchise despite his death at the end of the flagship series.
In the season six finale, Tariq is revealed as Ghost’s murderer in what is still one of the shocking twists of the series so far.
Although many fans are still convinced the kingpin will be resurrected somehow, he still hasn’t returned in either of Power’s two sequels, Ghost and Force.
While Johnson remained adamant Saxe’s old enemy is dead and buried, he did reveal fans may not have seen the end of Hardwick’s time on the series.
“The one thing I do think could happen is, I know Omari has said he’s interested in telling a different story about James,” he revealed.
“So, that would have to probably be a show that we didn’t see, but was happening simultaneously to Power.”
Johnson was quick to shut down rumours about Ghost faking his death in order to manipulate his son from beyond the grave.
However, Hardwick is clearly still keen to reprise his iconic role in some fashion and could even return for a full series set within the Power universe.
Teasing more about his proposal, Johnson continued: “It would almost be like we go through those same six years.
“But we see them outside of this world. So, it’s like what’s the darker other stuff that’s happening outside what we’ve seen on camera already.
“I don’t even know if they’ve ever done a show like this that I’m talking about. But I think that would be interesting.”
The Saxe star admitted he doesn’t believe a prequel centred on Ghost would be possible as Hardwick’s performance was too iconic.

“It would be weird to do a prequel,” he said. “Because he’s, like, 10 years older now.
“And it would be weird to recast him. You can’t recast him, he’s too iconic.
“Although I always felt that way about, like, the Incredible Hulk, Superman and Spider-Man.”
Fans can rest assured that if Ghost does come back in some form, Hardwick is still the only man for the job.
Even so, there’s some possibility a younger Ghost will eventually be introduced in Power’s first prequel series, Raising Kanan.
This series follows the rise of Kanan Stark (Mekai Curtis), originally portrayed by the show’s producer 50 Cent, in Jamaica, Queens and wrapped up its second season in October last year.
With three series currently on the go and still proving popular for Starz, showrunner Courtney Kemp could soon throw one more spin-off into the mix to tell more of Ghost’s story.
Power Book II: Ghost season 3 premieres Friday, March 17 on Starz in the USA and Lionsgate+ via Prime Video in the UK.
