Meanwhile, Mekai opened up to Digital Spy about how he dealt with filming some of the darker scenes during filming for season 2.

"At this point, I kind of do a disassociation thing. I think there have definitely been difficult days – whether it be for, you know, the actual hours that we're putting in, whether it be the actual content or concept of what we're shooting," he explained.

"But by the end of the day, I'm so kind of, like, depleted and I've put my all into the work and what's happening I kind of just like, base out."

Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 3 premieres December 1 on Starz in the US and Lionsgate+ in the UK.
