More About “Power Book IV: Force” Season Two:

After cutting ties in New York, Tommy Egan’s (Joseph Sikora) newfound family and ruthless drug game enticed him to stay in Chicago. The explosive second season begins with Tommy on a mission to avenge the death of Lilliana, his former nemesis turned business partner. With the Flynn organization weakened, he’s more determined than ever to take over the Chicago drug world, but with CBI split down the middle, Tommy and Diamond (Isaac Keys) first must maintain their edge over Jenard (Kris D. Lofton). As their factions feud in the streets, Tommy capitalizes on another rivalry between the Serbs and Miguel Garcia (Manuel Eduardo Ramirez), the most formidable drug lord in Chicago. After setting off a chain reaction of violence in pursuit of his ambition, Tommy must race to stay ahead of the men who are coming for what’s theirs, a federal task force that’s closing ranks, and a sadistic supplier with a direct line to the Cartel. All the while torn by the promise of a second chance with his blood family, Tommy must decide what he is willing to sacrifice to finally ascend the throne of a kingpin.
