Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Starz is adding four actors to Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

The network said Tuesday that LeToya Luckett, Omar Dorsey, Krystal Joy Brown and Paulina Singer will join Season 2 of the drama series.


Luckett (Ballers, Greenleaf) will play Kenya, LaVerne "Jukebox" Ganner's (Hailey Kilgore) mother and Marvin Thomas' (London Brown) ex. Upon her return to New York, she settles in Harlem where church is a big part of her life.

Dorsey (Queen Sugar) will portray Cartier "Duns" Fareed, a handsome, charismatic and confident character who is always dressed to kill. He has a vision for business, expanding into less crowded markets like Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.

Brown (Hamilton) will play Renée Timmons, Marvin's (Brown) anger management therapist. Renée can hold her own, especially with the people who attend her class and need help working through their issues.

Singer (Gotham, Orange is the New Black) will portray Zisa, a beautiful up-and-coming singer hoping to make a name for herself with Lou-Lou Thomas (Malcolm Mays) and Crown Camacho's (Quincy Brown) label.

Omar Epps, Patina Miller, MeKai Curtis, Joey Bada$$, Toby Sandeman, Shanley Caswell, Quincy Brown and Antonio Ortiz will return for Season 2. Sascha Penn will return as showrunner and executive producer with Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.


Power Book III: Raising Kanan is a spinoff of Power, which aired on Starz from 2014 to 2020. The series is a prequel to Power that explores how Kanan Stark, played by Jackson on Power and Curtis in Power Book III, got in the drug game.
