Starz hit series “Power” was a huge success, to say the least. The crime drama garnered critical acclaim from the moment it premiered up until its final and sixth season.
As expected, the Starz network, in conjunction with whiz rapper turned producer 50 Cent, co-producer Courtney A. Kemp and other partners teased an announcement that assured fans that this was not the end.

They promised new spinoffs to continue the power series and thrill fans all the way. While being true to their words, the team has released two out of the four promised spinoffs titled “Power Book II: Ghost” and Power Book III: Raising Kanan.”
However, the third installment, “Power Book IV: Force,” is what most fans would want to see. The curiosity to know the final story of Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) has kept them anxious all this while.
Here’s more info about the movie’s trailer and release date.
Starz Says ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Will Debut Next Year
In the official description for the series, the network also gave more details to fans on what to expect.
It detailed the story behind Tommy’s departure from his past life in New York to seek calmer pastures. While trying to figure out his future, he stopped in Chicago for some unfinished business— that had remained unresolved for decades.
According to the statement, several unexpected events pushed Tommy into the drug game again, and this time, he was placed between the two biggest rivals in the city. Unsurprisingly, Tommy utilized his newcomer status to his advantage, browbeating his way on a new quest to become the biggest drug dealer in Chicago.
Fans of the franchise know Tommy as the lifelong friend and criminal collaborator of the deceased “Power” star James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick). His return in “Power Book IV: Force” is truly a sight for sore eyes.
Starz Trailer For ‘Power Book IV: Force’
In addition to the official description for the upcoming series, Starz released a trailer to whet fans’ appetite. The barely minute-long video opened with Tommy driving his infamous blue 1960sr Mustang on an unknown spot in Chicago, where he blew it to smithereens.
In a way, it indicated a fresh new start for the hot-tempered gangster as he navigates his life after New York. A later scene showed him being advised not to stick around Chicago. Predictably, he stayed back and seemed to delve into his old habits of violence.
With the release date scheduled for early next year, fans can expect to enjoy ten episodes of Tommy running riot on their screens. Whether or not the series would cross over with season two of its counterpart, “Power Book II: Ghost” is a yet to be confirmed possibility.
A likelihood of a crossover is plausible as the two shows run in the same timeline but just different cities.

Sikora’s character has garnered fans’ love since the parent series premiered in 2014. After the drama-filled conclusion of “Power,” fans have eagerly anticipated his return to their screens.
