Even though we still have a couple of episodes to go in Power Book II: Ghost season 2, that’s not stopping us from talking season 3! With that in mind, we come bearing the latest big of casting news today.
According to a new report from Deadline, Petey McGee is going to be a heavily recurring presence on the latest season of the show. His role is that of Salim Ashe Freeman, described as a “Hotep grad student and TA at an Ivy League university.” Here’s the big question we’re set to wonder: Why are we getting to meet another university student away from Stansfield?

The most reasonable assumption we can make at the moment is that this character is somewhat linked to the story of Effie, which aligns with some of the claims that this character is going to have a substantially larger role over the course of these upcoming episodes. We know that she’s at a prestigious school separate from Tariq and the other characters, just as we’ve yet to see any evidence that this cover is blown.
Beyond this new addition, we know already that there are a number of other new/familiar faces we’ll be poised to see in season 3. For example, there is going to be a new professor brought in, which makes sense given that at this point, both Jabari and Carrie are dead and there’s no way a politician like Rashad Tate is going to be responsible of being a sole teacher to young students. Meanwhile, Blanca is going to come back to the franchise after being a very-important fixture from the end of the original Power.
