Despite Joseph Sikora's star power and the fact that Power Book IV: Force Season 2 has been confirmed, the show has faced some very public struggles.
Tommy Egan (Sikora) relocated to Chicago in order to establish himself. Now that Force is winding down, it appears that he's up to a lot more. Fans were excited to see how Tommy would recover after the death of his best buddy, James "Ghost" St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), and they were not disappointed.
Power Book IV: Force Season 2 confirmed
Fans were taken aback when Power Book IV: Force Season 2 wasn't announced until mid-March, despite its big premiere. However, it appears that Tommy's time in Chicago will not be coming to an end anytime soon. Power Book IV: Force Season 2 wasn't announced until mid-March, despite its big premiere.

“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,” Jeffrey Hirsch, President, and CEO at STARZ, said.
“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.”
Power Book IV: Force struggles
Force had some stumbling blocks behind the scenes before it even aired. Robert Munic, the show's creator, left the show before it even aired. His departure was reported by Deadline in July 2021.
Fans of the Power Universe and Tommy Egan were left scratching their heads, despite the series having the biggest launch in Starz history when it premiered in February 2022. The storylines seemed clumsy, and Chicago fans couldn't fully buy into some of the series' plot points.
Thankfully, Sikora's portrayal of Tommy has kept the show on track.
“I’ll be up for a second and third season easily because I think there’s a lot more story to tell. I think Chicago as a city deserves it,” Sikora told Digital Spy. “And I think the fans deserve it to get to a place where we can live with less words and more time in Tommy’s psyche.”
Hopefully, Power Book IV: Force Season 2 will be the start of a change for the better.
