With Kanan’s (Mekai Curits) eyes more open than ever before as it pertains to Raq’s secrets, Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 3 should prove to be very explosive for the son and mother. Season 3 of the series comes on the heels of Power Book II: Ghost season 3 and Power Book IV: Force season 2.

As Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 2 wrapped, Kanan was fully aware of the cutthroat criminal component of his mother’s life and resented her for it. Additionally, he had to figure out what the concept of “right and wrong” means going forward. Meanwhile, deep down, Raq wanted to restore her relationship with her son, but she had to deal with a lot of enemies which was taking up her time. Unfortunately for her, one major enemy still looms.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 3 plot

Here is the official synopsis of Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 3:

"Over the last two seasons of Raising Kanan, Kanan Stark has slowly learned the truth about not only his mother, but also himself. It has been a tortuous journey for him and everyone around him. With each new revelation, Kanan has been forced to confront his family’s seemingly never-ending web of secrets and lies. He has spent much of this time in a state of denial, but now, Kanan’s blinders are finally off, and he doesn’t like what he sees.

"In season three, Kanan finds himself grappling with the very notions of right and wrong. Good and evil. Fidelity and disloyalty. And he’s not alone. Every member of the Thomas family must confront an existential crisis that challenges their very identity. Whether it’s Marvin, who’s still trying to redeem himself, or Raq, who’s finally coming clean, or Lou, who’s wrestling with his own evil, or Jukebox, who’s simply trying to break free from her family’s pathology, they are all attempting to redefine and reinvent themselves. They won’t all be able to complete this intensely personal quest, but for those who do, the destination may reveal the most terrifying secret of all. There is no right and wrong or good and evil. There are no absolutes. In the end, there’s just you."
