Force ‘Season 2 has now started production

Power Book IV: Strength is one of the most popular Able spin off. Set after the murder of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, the series revolves around his best friend and business partner Tommy Egan as he carries on without him. Devastated by the events in New York, Tommy moves to Chicago to create a new organization. But he struggles with the perils of being the new man in town.

The first season ended explosively in April, leaving fans eager to see where the story goes next. Luckily, it looks like they won’t have to wait long, because Power Book IV: Strength Season 2 is already in preparation.

Where ‘Power Book IV: Force’ left off

In the series finale, Tommy went to war with mob Walter Flynn and the Chicago Brothers Incorporated (CBI). Many soldiers were killed in the carnage, including Liliana. Tommy was devastated, vowing revenge on Claudia Flynn for Liliana’s death in Power Book IV: Strength. He couldn’t move in the finale, but Sikora believes viewers will see him trying to get revenge next season.

“I think Tommy is going to seek revenge on Liliana, first and foremost,” he told BlackFilmandTV.com. “And then I think he’ll strategize. I think it’s going to be a very complex season. Gary Lennon, who’s the showrunner, is an accomplished artist and story maker. I can’t wait to see where he go, because I have nothing but faith and confidence in his abilities.

Sikora also teased Tommy and Diamond Sampson’s new partnership now that Diamond has parted ways with Jenard Sampson. “I think there will definitely be more partnerships between Diamond and Tommy because Tommy can’t do it alone,” he shared. “No one can. So Tommy needs friends or at least people he can rely on to some extent if he’s ever going to attempt to take over the city of Chicago.

This suggests the casting of Power Book IV: Strength Season 2 will feature regular cast members Sikora, Lili Simmons (Claudia Flynn), Tommy Flanagan (Walter Flynn), Shane Harper (Vic Flynn), Isaac Keys (Diamond Sampson), Kris D. Lofton (Jenard Sampson) and Anthony Fleming (JP Gibbs), among others. But Starz has yet to reveal official casting information.

“Things are going to happen that, again, you’re going to see how it molds and molds Kanan and what it does to his psyche,” Curtis told Entertainment Weekly about Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 2. “Family is in a whole new space and different dynamic now, so they’re the ones navigating and figuring out where they can walk, where they can’t walk. There are a lot of complicated things going on. It’s wild.
