Power Book 2’s Bash star lands huge new role away from Starz drama 'Dreams come true'


Sebastian ‘Bash’ Kumal-Stern (played by Abubakr Ali) made quite the impact alongside Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) when he was introduced in the first season of Power Book II: Ghost on Starz. Bash’s intelligence and know-how proved invaluable to Tariq as he looked to follow in his father Ghost’s (Omari Hardwick) and establish his own drug empire. And while he may have only popped up in a handful of episodes, fans will undoubtedly be expecting to see more of Ali in season two – although they’ll be able to catch him elsewhere as he’s penned to lead an exciting new show on Netflix.

Ali has put pen to paper to lead the way in Netflix’s upcoming comic-book series, Grendel.

The new action-packed fantasy series will be based on the Dark Horse comic books of the same name.

Grendel was created by author Matt Wagner and follows a masked vigilante in New York City as he tackles the dark underbelly of organised crime.

And the Power Book II star isn’t the only big name to land a role in the highly-anticipated series.

“Gritty noir? Revenge thriller? Tragic love story? Post-apocalyptic epic? Character study? Yes to all of ’em.” (sic)

While a fourth added: “If you had told me in the 80s/90s Grendel would get a TV show, I would not have believed you. This should be interesting…”
