Starz today announced the series order for Power Book IV: Force, which will be the third new series in the expanded Power Universe from creator, writer and executive producer Courtney A. Kemp and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
Power Book IV: Force centers on fan-favorite character Tommy Egan, played by Joseph Sikora, after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good. Robert Munic (Vital Signs, Ice) will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series.
“Power has been one of the most successful series in premium pay television during its six-year run, garnering more than 10 million multiplatform views in its last two seasons and we can’t wait to take fans in a whole new direction as we pick-up Tommy’s story with Power Book IV: Force,” said Starz President of Programming Christina Davis.
As the Power franchise continues to expand, the STARZ Original series Power Book II: Ghost, starring Michael Rainey Jr., Naturi Naughton, Mary J. Blige and Cliff “Method Man” Smith, is set to premiere on Sunday, September 6 at 9 PM ET/PT.

The premiere season for “Ghost” will be split into two parts of five episodes each, with the second half scheduled to air later this year.
