STARZ releases first look photos from the upcoming second season of the action-packed series “Power Book IV: Force,” aptly timed as a Christmas in July gift to fans, since franchise favorite “Tommy Egan” is known for cancelling Christmas if someone crosses him.

On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 8 PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.

ABOUT “POWER BOOK IV: FORCE” – SEASON 2 After cutting ties in New York, Tommy Egan’s 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 first must maintain their edge over Jenard. As their factions feud in the streets, Tommy capitalizes on another rivalry between the Serbs and Miguel Garcia, 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.
