Power Book IV: Force is coming back for a second season, Starz announced Wednesday.
The third spinoff in the Power franchise debuted on Feb. 6, and became the most-watched premiere in the premium cable network’s history with 3.3 million cross-platform viewers in the U.S., as previously reported.
“Fans have been eagerly awaiting Joseph’s return as the iconic ‘Tommy Egan’ and from the show’s record-setting debut, it was clear right away that they want to see another season of him taking on this new city,” Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO at STARZ, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have Joseph back in the ‘Power’ Universe and to be expanding the world with a new tapestry of power players brought to life by our fantastic cast.”

The series features Joseph Sikora as fan favorite Tommy Egan who leaves New York but when unexpected events unfold, he quickly finds himself in Chicago’s drug game dealing with the Windy City’s two biggest crews.
Joining Sikora in the cast are Isaac Keys, Lili Simmons, Gabrielle Ryan, Shane Harper, Kris D. Lofton, Anthony Fleming III, Lucien Cambric, and Tommy Flanagan.
The drama is created by Robert Munic and executive produced by Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Gary Lennon (Power, Hightown, Euphoria) will join the second season as showrunner and executive producer.
Following the show’s record-setting premiere, 50 Cent took to Instagram to question why it wasn’t immediately renewed. He even went as far as threatening to take it to another network.
Hopefully all is well now that the show has been officially renewed for season 2.
Power Book IV: Force airs Sundays on Starz.
