The highly success third spinoff from the original Power series that saw Joseph Sikora return as Tommy Egan, who leaves New York and finds himself caught up in the Chicago drug game, is extending his stay.
“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,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO at Starz. “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.”
Per Starz, “Force” pulled in 3.3 million multiplatform viewers for its Feb. 6 premiere, making it the most-watched premiere in network history. Furthermore, it broke Starz app viewership records.
Due to the show’s popularity, plans to renew was in the works for some time and that a Season 2 writers’ room was staffed ahead of the series premiere, despite 50 Cent claiming otherwise.
Robert Munic who created “Force” and served as showrunner on season one has left the series ahead of the end of production on the first season. Gary Lennon will join the show in season 2 as showunner and executive producer. “Power” creator Courtney A. Kemp also executive produces along with Jackson. Kemp executive produces via End of Episode, while Jackson does so via G-Unit Film and Television. Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM also executive produces along with Terri Kopp and End of Episode’s Chris Selak. Lionsgate Television produces.
Power Book IV: Force also stars Isaac Keys, Lili Simmons, Gabrielle Ryan, Shane Harper, Kris D. Lofton, Anthony Fleming III, Lucien Cambric, and Tommy Flanagan.
