‘Power Book IV: Force’ Season 2 Will Allow Viewers to Get Inside Tommy’s Head
Power Book IV: Force centers on Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) following the death of his best friend and business partner James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick). Leaving New York behind for a fresh start in Chicago, Tommy is trying to build his own drug empire without Ghost.
In the first season, fans saw a more vulnerable side of Tommy, and in season 2 we are slated to get inside his head.
‘Power Book IV: Force’ Season 2 will begin production in May
Force has been renewed for a second season and the series is slated to begin production in Chicago in May 2022. Reel Chicago is reporting that the majority of the filming will take place at Cinespace. They also note that if production stays on schedule, Season 2 should premiere in February 2023.
Fans can expect Force Season 2 to be completely different.
Joseph Sikora says Season 2 will allow viewers to get inside Tommy’s head
The second season of Force is set to have a new showrunner, Power veteran, Gary Lennon. “Courtney Kemp deserves and gets credit for the creation of the character I’m grateful to play every episode,” Sikora told TV Line. “Gary Lennon truly is the cultivator of that voice and that dynamic emotion behind the character.”
Lennon has directed and written some of the most compelling episodes of Power, including the episode where Tommy kills his father Tony Teresi (William Slater). Sikora says Lennon’s vision will allow viewers to get inside Tommy’s head.
“Gary allows there to be space in silence, and I would love that because you never know what the heck is going to come out of silence and space,” the actor told Hollywood Life. “I think that when you can see characters thinking, that really brings the audience into their mind and their mindset. I think people are very interested in what makes Tommy click, what makes him think, and I’m really excited to see where Gary takes the character.”
‘Force’ Season 2 will center on Tommy’s relationship with his family
When Tommy arrived in Chicago at the beginning of Force, he was searching for a new space in the world. Following the death of Ghost, he really had no family left, especially after Tasha (Naturi Naughton) and Tariq’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) betrayals. However, he never guessed that he would uncover his very own blood family.
After arriving in the Windy City he learned that he had a brother, JP (Anthony Fleming) whom he never knew about, and a nephew D-Mac (Lucien Cambric) who was looking for a purpose. Now that his mother, Kate (Patricia Kalember) has popped up in Chicago, things are going to look very different for Tommy moving forward.
“What I loved in the finale was that beautiful tableau that [director] Deon Taylor set up, of Tommy, D-Mac, JP, and Kate in the hospital,” Sikora told TV Line. “And he left it on for a full second-and-a-half, two seconds without changing the frame. To me, it was really strong, directorially, to say: We’re establishing this for our story. Who knows where it’s going to go? But for right now, this is a family unit.”
