‘Power Book IV: Force’ To End With Season 3

Currently in production in Chicago

by Dave Elliott

Starz continues its shake-up of the ‘Power’ franchise, as they announce Power Book IV: Force‘ will end with Season 3, which is currently filming in Chicago.

The series follows Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) who is on a mission to avenge Liliana and take over the Chicago drug world. He must decide what he is willing to sacrifice to finally ascend the throne of a kingpin.

This is the second of the ‘Power’ spin-off series to end in recent months after Starz announced ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ would conclude after 4 Seasons. However, the franchise is sticking around, as they also revealed a new prequel series, ‘Power: Origins’, which will take us back to delve into the origin story of fan-favourite characters, Ghost and Tommy. So this move makes a certain amount of sense, with the older “Ghost” and “Tommy” making way for their younger incarnations.

“It is bittersweet to write the fulfilling ending of this chapter in Tommy’s journey, a character myself and fans have grown to love over the past decade,” said showrunner and executive producer Gary Lennon. “Season 3 will question everything we thought we knew of Tommy’s world and I promise you it will not disappoint! Although this may be the end of the road for Force, there is much more expansive, compelling storytelling for the characters within the Power Universe.”

This is all part of a strategy by Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch to help curtail the costs of long-running dramas. By ending some of the spin-offs which gradually increase in cost due to rising wage bills, but then ordering new ones to replace them, you can keep a big franchise like “Power” alive, but make sure they are priced at a more manageable level. It also allows the show creators to explore more areas of the “Power” Universe.

Gary Lennon (“Power,” “Euphoria”) served as showrunner and executive producer for season two and will return for season three of ‘Power Book IV: Force’. The “Power” Universe series is executive produced by the creator and showrunner of the original “Power,” Courtney A. Kemp through her production company End of Episode, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through G-Unit Film and Television, and Mark Canton through Atmosphere Entertainment MM. Terri Kopp and Chris Selak also serve as executive producers. Lionsgate Television produces the series for STARZ
