‘Power Book IV: Force’: Joseph Sikora Says the Show Should Have at Least 3 Seasons
Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) has returned to our screens in the Power Universe spinoff Power Book IV: Force. Following the deaths of his best friend, James “Ghost” St. Patrick’s (Omari Hardwick) and girlfriend, LaKeisha Grant (La La Anthony), Tommy has left New York for a fresh start elsewhere.
Though he was originally supposed to head to California, Tommy has decided to set up roots in Chicago. However, his presence has aggravated the infamous Flynn family. As his new chapter begins, Sikora says that Force needs to span at least three seasons.
What is ‘Power Book IV: Force’ about?
After much anticipation, fans are finally getting back in sync with the fan-favorite Power Universe character, Tommy Egan. “One step leads to another and Tommy quickly finds himself in Chicago’s drug game, inserting himself between the city’s two biggest crews,” the Starz press release said via Deadline. “In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, ultimately becoming the lynchpin that not only unites them – but holds the power to watch them crumble. Tommy uses his outsider status to his advantage, breaking all the local rules and rewriting them on his quest to become the biggest drug dealer in Chicago.”
Joseph Sikora says ‘Force’ should have at least 3 seasons
Though Force is just getting started, once fans settle into Tommy’s new world in Chicago, it’s likely that it will be a success. In fact, Sikora is hoping that the series will span at least three seasons.
“I mean, I think that the show, even just in terms of what the fans want, and the storytelling, I think it has to go a minimum of three seasons,” Sikora told Express. “And maybe a few more than that. But certainly, three to get the full dynamic of Tommy Egan and even Walter Flynn.”
For now, we’d love to know the backstory behind Tommy’s brother and how his relationship with Gloria (Gabriele Ryan) is going to unfold, especially since she has a history with Vic Flynn (Shane Harper).
“It’s really f***ing good,” Sikora told Entertainment Weekly. “People are going to love it. I think that it’s going to take all facets of Tommy that we’ve built up to until now to not only survive but to potentially thrive — and to potentially leave. You don’t know if it’s going to be one city and then another city and if he’s going to keep bopping or what connections need to be made.”
Will Omari Hardwick appear on ‘Power Book IV: Force’?
Though we’re certain that Hardwick’s character Ghost is dead, fans are still clamoring for the Pieces of Her actor to appear on Force. On Power Book II: Ghost, Kanan (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson), who had been dead since the original Power often appears to Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) in his dreams. Fans are hoping the same for Ghost on Force.
Though nothing has been confirmed, Sikora has hinted that there is a possibility that could happen. “He very well might,” Sikora said on Instagram Live. “He could also make an appearance as a live character you never know.”
We’re certain the actor is pulling our leg with the “live” aspect. But some fans are still convinced that the notorious kingpin isn’t actually dead.
