Power Book IV: Force Season 2 Trailer Sees Trouble Ahead for Tommy Egan

STARZ released today the high-octane trailer for season two of Power Book IV: Force, along with dynamic gallery images and key art for the highly anticipated drama series. Season two of STARZ’s scripted drama Power Book IV: Force, returns on Friday, September 1 at midnight ET on the STARZ app, all STARZ streaming and on-demand platforms and internationally on the LIONSGATE+ premium streaming platform across the UK and Ireland. On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 8 PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.

Things ended in a bloody mess during the finale of Power Book IV: Force season one. The ending saw the death of Liliana, law enforcement officers discuss Tommy, while Vic and Claudia drank to Gloria’s memory and resolved to never trust their father again. Tommy and Diamond discussed business plans for the future, ending with Tommy claiming that he wants the entire map.

As seen in the trailer above, in season 2 Tommy only has two things on his mind, avenging Liliana’s death and becoming top boss in Chicago. But things aren’t that simple and just like Nat King Cole says in Let’s Face the Music and Dance. Season two presents itself as a cautionary tale as Tommy and Diamond face an uncertain future. Tommy is questioning his position in Chicago, asking Diamond, “you ever get tired of being the bottom at the top? What’s standing in our way?”

Nothing stands in Tommy Egan’s way this season as he makes his play at becoming the sole drug distributor in Chicago, explaining, “Right now, we just let them fight each other as we expand our territory. And then when nobody’s looking, we slide right on in. We cease this moment; it’ll get us closer to becoming the connect.”

Alliances form and competitors become targets as a bloody and violent turf war heats up and Tommy must race to stay one step ahead of everyone. Meanwhile, a federal task force is zeroed in on him and he has an eye on a special someone, forcing him to decide what he is willing to sacrifice to claim Chicago as his.

“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.”

Robert Munic who created Force and served as showrunner on Season 1. He departed 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. 

As series star Joseph Sikora stated in an interview with TVFanatic, “…We have the best showrunner on the planet, Gary Lennon, running the show now, who, of course, is the co-executive producer and a co-showrunner of the Power show. So, I’ve got to tell you that anything can happen. Gary is brilliant and really gritty. I mean, he’s such a New Yorker to the bone. He’s a Westie, and he’s just a tough guy, and I love it. He really brings back the kind of Tommy that we all know and love, and we’re getting back down to business in Season 2. I cannot wait for people to see it.”
