And the 23-year-old was vocal on Thursday (March 14) about finding out the news online. But he later shared an exclusive statement with The Shade Room expressing his gratitude for the role of Tariq in the ‘Power’ universe.

“Portraying Tariq St. Patrick in the ‘Power’ universe has been an incredible journey. ‘Power’ has been an amazing platform, opening doors for young actors like myself, and I’m truly grateful for that. While the ending of ‘Book II’ may feel abrupt and disappointing, I choose to view it as a stepping stone for many of us as we transition into the next chapter of our careers,” Michael Rainey Jr. said.
