Power Book III: Raising Kanan's third season adds Tony Danza

Power Book III: Raising Kanan's second season will end next week when the finale airs. Now, Deadline tells us that the finale will introduce a new major character who will be a big part of the third season, which Starz picked up before the second season premiere. In the Season 2 finale, TV veteran Tony Danza will play Stefano Marchetti, the Godfather of the New York City mafia. 

When Danza's character shows up, Kanan (Mekai Curtis) has made a lot of progress in the drug business, which his family, led by his cruel mother Raq (Patina Miller), taught him how to do. In season 2, Raq seems to have taken over the drug business in Queens. Marchetti is the most powerful person in the mafia drug scene in New York City. He decides what goes where and who gets what. Every drug store in the city has to talk to him first, and anyone who doesn't will have to face the music. Kanan's overly ambitious mother is always trying to get more land, and Marchetti could be a new enemy for her. 

Power was a hit for Starz for 6 seasons, and it led to the creation of three spin-offs, one of which is Raising Kanan. The prequel series takes place in Queens, New York, in the 1990s. It tells the story of how Kanan got his start. In the original series, Cutis "50 Cent" Jackson played Kanan. In Season 1, a young Kanan was eager to join his family's illegal business. However, by the end of the season, he starts to question his life's purpose after he shoots Detective Howard, who he doesn't know is his biological father.

 Starz has made more progress with the second season, in which Kanan moved back to New York after running away to Boston in the first season. 

Danza was nominated for an Emmy for his roles in the popular classic sitcoms Taxi and Who's the Boss? Danza has had some important roles on the big screen, but he has spent most of his career on television. He has been a guest star on shows like Rita Rocks, Broad City, and Blue Bloods. 

He has also moved to streaming with Hulu's There's... Johnny! and Netflix's The Good Cop. Danza has been busy lately. An Amazon Freevee remake of "Who's the Boss?" will bring him back to his beloved role as a retired major league baseball player, and he is currently filming the fantasy movie Darby Harper Wants You to Know, which will air on Hulu during the holiday season. Also, Danza was added to the cast of Sex and the City's follow-up show, And Just Like That, which was announced this week. 

Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Hailey Kilgore, Joey Bada$$, and Shanley Caswell also have roles in the movie Raising Kanan. The show is run by and created by Sascha Penn. 50 Cent, Courtney A. Kemp, and Mark Canton are the show's executive producers. 

Season 3 of the show is currently being filmed in New York, but Starz hasn't set a date for when it will air.
