Power Book II: Ghost will return for a fourth season on Starz.

The network announced in a press release Monday that it renewed the drama series for Season 4.

The news comes ahead of the show's Season 3 premiere, which airs March 17.

In addition, Michael Ealy will join the cast as a series regular in Season 4.

Ealy will play Detective Don Carter, an NYPD officer who was on track to become police commissioner until his wife was killed in a crossfire between rival drug gangs.

"Vowing to make the streets safer, Carter traded in his tie for a kevlar vest and now leads an elite NYPD drug task force that elicits concrete results against drug related violence. While his achievements are noteworthy public recognition, nothing can bring back his lost love," an official description reads.

Power Book II: Ghost is a sequel to the Starz series Power. The show follows Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.), the son of Power's James St. Patrick, as he struggles to leave behind his father's drug empire.

Production on Season 4 is underway in New York.
