Omari Hardwick’s character on Power as ‘Ghost’ said to be alive and ready to make appearance in the power series.
Hardrick played James “Ghost” St. Patrick in every episode of the popular Starz series for all six seasons. In the series finale, Ghost was shot, and it was thought that his son Tariq St. Patrick was responsible for his death. Since then, Hardwick has shared dream sequences and flashbacks with his on-screen kid in Power Book II: Ghost.
The actor revealed in an interview with The Associated Press that he had been approached by producers to make a comeback to the “Power” universe.
For Hardwick to contemplate coming back to the series, he indicated that Ghost would need a compelling storyline on the show.
All it would need to be is flawless. They requested that I return. In the past year and a half, they have urged me to return,” the actor remarked.
In addition, Hardwick stated that in order to seize this chance, he would require the appropriate sum of money.
“When I was reading the script for [Netflix’s The Mother] in Boston, I was offered this. I was thinking, “And then this,” while in Boston.
Three spinoffs have since been released by co-creator 50 Cent and his team: “Power Book II: Ghost,” which follows Ghost’s son Tariq as he succeeds him.
“Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” which tells the story of Fif’s character Kanan’s early years; and “Power Book IV: Force,” which tracks Ghost’s best friend Tommy Egan as he attempts to become Chicago’s drug pin king.
While promoting his latest film, The Mother, which stars Jennifer Lopez, Hardwick told The Associated Press, “It would just have to be the perfect thing.”
He stated, “They asked me before to come back,” in the brief video that started making the rounds on the internet on Friday, May 12. The actor went on to say that the request was made prior to the release of “Power Book II: Ghost” season three.
“During the past year and a half, they have asked me to return.” I said, “Okay, then this [salary he demanded], and then this went to Starz, and they didn’t come back giving me what I wanted in this,” while I was in Boston reading the screenplay and was offered this [part in The Mother.”
Ultimately, Hardwick stated that the ideal plot and the appropriate terms are required for his comeback. His fans are already starting petitions to get him the money he deserves so they can fulfil their TV aspirations.
Even though Ghost is still not seen on film, his influence is still felt since Tariq succeeds in the drug trade that his father intended to leave behind.
The last two episodes of the series were supposed to premiere later this month, but on Friday they were leaked weeks ahead of schedule.
In the past, 50 Cent has criticised the network for making mistakes of this nature. But in dealing with the incident early on Saturday, May 13, he appeared to have adopted a more casual attitude.
“Congratulations to the only network that discloses its largest series leaks. Fantastic effort, folks,” he remarked under a photo. Despite the chaotic finale to the season, viewers who watched the shows appear to be rather happy, judging on their responses on social media.
