Joseph Sikora is hyped about the changes made behind-the-scenes with 50 Cent’sPower Book IV: Force ahead of the show’s second season.
STARZ announced on Monday (May 22) that Season 2 of Force will hit the premium network on September 1.
A trailer unveiling the release date finds Sikora (Tommy Egan) climbing the ranks around Chicago and making his presence felt as his opposition continues to fear him.
“I’m back,” Sikora’s character declares to close out the teaser.
The timing of the announcement is fitting considering it comes fresh on the heels of the latest episode of Power Book: II Ghost, which saw Tommy Egan’s character make an epic return by inserting himself into the middle of the St. Patrick family drama.

HipHopDX caught up with Joseph Sikora earlier this year during the press run of his Fear movie with T.I. Sikora spoke highly of season two of Force, which he feels captures a more authentic feel of Chicago.
“Let me tell you, the second season is way better,” he said. “It’s like, we got Chicago — the first season, it didn’t. I don’t think so. I think they used Chicago as a backdrop.
“You’re telling me there’s one Black gang in Chicago and they run everything? Nobody’s trying to light that place up? There’s not divisions within that? The first season, the Latin thing — listen, she was great but that’s it? Chicago’s one of the most Latin cities in the entire continent. It’s the third-largest Mexican population in the world.”
Power Book IV: Force received a new showrunner in Gary Lennon last year, and Sikora compared the upcoming batch of episodes to the hit Netflix series Ozark.
“Give props to Gary Lennon. He was the showrunner for Power‘s Season 5 and Season 6,” he explained. “He’s from Hell’s Kitchen and his brothers were gangsters (Westies). He is the voice of the Tommy Egan character so it’s going to be authentic. Watch Season 2. It’s as legit as a season of Ozark.”
