Power Book IV: Season 2 Force Story
The second season of Power Book IV: Force has received an official plot summary. According to Power Book IV: Force season 2 news, the second season will concentrate on Tommy’s efforts to take over Chicago and avenge Liliana’s death.
The Flynn organization has suffered significant setbacks, and the CBI is in disarray, but this only encourages Tommy to work harder as he and Diamond continue to gain ground on Jenard. As various factions wage war in the streets and Federal forces close in, Tommy must decide where his loyalties lie and what is most essential. The complete plot summary supplied by Starz can be found below.
Tommy Egan wants to get revenge for Liliana’s death, and now that the Flynn group is weaker, he’s more determined than ever to take over the drug world in Chicago. But since CBI is split down the middle, Tommy and Diamond must first keep Jenard from getting ahead of them. As their groups fight in the streets, Tommy takes advantage of a fight between the Serbs and Miguel Garcia, the most powerful drug lord in Chicago, and uses it to his advantage. After starting a chain reaction of violence to get what he wants, Tommy must run to stay ahead of the men who are coming for what’s theirs, a federal task force that is closing ranks, and a sadistic dealer with a direct line to the Cartel. Tommy must decide what he is willing to give up to finally become a kingpin, even though he is pulled by the promise of a second chance with his blood family.
Power Book IV: Season 2 Force Trailer
A trailer for Power Book IV: Force season 2 was released just a few weeks prior to the release date, promising more conflicts for Tommy Egan and the company. As Tommy and Diamond fight their way to the top of the Chicago narcotic trade, the Power Book IV: Force season 2 trailer promises just as much action, if not more, than season 1.
With Liliana’s death and the federal government’s current focus on Tommy, the pressures have only increased since season one. As long-held family secrets come to light and all-out street warfare erupts, alliances will shift and change.
Tommy tells Diamond that he’s weary of not being on top, while Diamond expresses concern that Chicago’s most powerful connections stand in their way. As the Flynns raise the stakes and Miguel enters the game, Tommy’s claim that Chicago is a violent city is further supported.
Tommy’s strategy entails allowing warring factions to fight it out and then slipping in at an opportune moment, but things may not be so simple as the Feds and Miguel are now on Tommy’s trail. In season 2 of Power Book IV: Force, things flare up between Tommy and Mireya, and the level of action increases significantly.
