“Power Book III: Raising Kanan” season two premiering August 14.

STARZ released the trailer for the highly anticipated second season of its hit crime drama "Power Book III: Raising Kanan," premiering August 14.

It stars MeKai Curtis in the titular role of "Kanan" and Tony® Award winner Patina Miller (Into The Woods, "Madam Secretary") as his mother, Raquel "Raq" Thomas. Averaging nearly 9M viewers across platforms in its debut season, "Power Book III: Raising Kanan" is one of the best performing first seasons in STARZ history.

On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.

Set in the early 1990's, the third series in the "Power" Universe tells the origin story of fan favorite character "Kanan Stark" and his entry into the criminal world through his mother, who ruthlessly runs the family's drug empire.

As we enter season two, Raquel 'Raq' Thomas has gained control over the city's drug trade, but her son is slipping away. Kanan Stark returns to Queens uncertain of his future with THE FAMILY business, and because of Detective Howard's lingering secret, he's even more uncertain of his past. Kanan searches for the truth while Raq boldly expands the business into hostile Mafia territory.

Lou-Lou has other plans that revolve around his emerging record label, but Raq isn't about to let his SIDE HUSTLE get in the way of her expansion. Although Marvin remains Raq's loyal soldier, he struggles to earn Jukebox's forgiveness and become the father she deserves. The TIES THAT BIND this family are becoming undone, but Raq will stop at nothing to hold them together.

In addition to Miller and Curtis, the cast also includes Omar Epps ("House," Love and Basketball), London Brown ("Ballers"), Malcolm Mays ("Them," "Snowfall"), Hailey Kilgore ("Amazing Stories"), Joey Bada$$ (Two Distant Strangers), Shanley Caswell (The Conjuring) and Antonio Ortiz ("High Fidelity," "The Sinner").
