Season 3 of the hotly anticipated Power spin-off, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, is arriving on Starz soon, so you know what that means: it’s the ’90s again in The Southside, and we’re back with the Thomas family as they navigate the ins and outs of the criminal underworld they’re helping build.

Mekai Curtis is returning as the titular Kanan, a teenager who is still trying to figure out right from wrong, where his loyalty lies, what his role is in the family, and what his future could be like. Also back is Patina Miller as Raq, Kanan’s mother who rules the family business as its powerful queenpin matriarch.

Where to watch Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 3

The new season of Power Book III: Raising Kanan will premiere on Starz on December 1st, 8:00 PM ET/PT. New episodes will be released weekly every Friday at midnight on the platform.

There are two ways to watch Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 3: on the Starz app or on streaming services that offer Starz as an add-on.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 3 on Starz

With all the streaming services vying for your attention, it’s easy to forget Starz actually has a horse in the race. In case you didn’t already know about the cable channel’s streaming arm, here’s a refresher and a link to learn more:

Starz

Starz is an on-demand streaming service that currently costs $10/month or a discounted $70/year. Like HBO and Showtime, the premium cable channel offers a mix of classics, originals, blockbusters, and indies in its catalog, all ad-free. To name a few, Starz is the streaming home of shows like Power, Outlander, P-Valley, and Party Down, as well as movies like John Wick, Jumanji, The Equalizer, and for the family, a couple of Disney live-action movies.

Price: $9.99/month

Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 3 on the Starz add-on

You can also catch the season premiere on the cord-cutting services below, which all offer Starz as an add-on—sometimes at a discount, but mostly for the same $10/month price on top of an existing subscription. This makes it so that you don’t have to visit another website or log on to a different app to watch Starz content.

DirecTV Stream

DirecTV Stream is a streaming service that offers everything from live TV, local channels, on-demand films, sports packages, and even premium cable networks like HBO and Starz for an additional fee. Its plans, which start at $70/month, are on the pricier side of live TV, but that’s because it offers unlimited DVR and streams on top of at least 75 channels, depending on the plan you pick.

The subscription costs $15/month, but if you're only interested in Prime as a standalone streaming service, you'll just have to pay $9/month.

Price: $14.99/month

Season 2 set up the grounds for more twisted action and drama

Fans of the Power series know that Kanan eventually ends up as the main baddie (played by 50 Cent), so it’s refreshing to see this side of him: Kanan as a wide-eyed young man hopeful for the future, then tortured into a seemingly unavoidable fate. But as the season 2 finale proves, Power Book III is as much Raq’s story as it is Kanan’s. The explosive ending was a masterclass in plot twists and tension, and it sets the ground for what promises to be an even wilder ride in season 3.

The last two seasons (and the OG series) are available to watch on Starz

There are currently 20 episodes of Power Book III: Raising Kanan available to stream on Starz. Also available on Starz are all 63 episodes of the original Power series, in case you’re up for a marathon.

Starz

Starz is an on-demand streaming service that currently costs $10/month or a discounted $70/year. Like HBO and Showtime, the premium cable channel offers a mix of classics, originals, blockbusters, and indies in its catalog, all ad-free. To name a few, Starz is the streaming home of shows like Power, Outlander, P-Valley, and Party Down, as well as movies like John Wick, Jumanji, The Equalizer, and for the family, a couple of Disney live-action movies.
