Tommy Egan (played by Joseph Sikora) had a rather bittersweet end to his time on Power. After watching his best friend James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (Omari Hardwick) die in his arms following a gunshot wound inflicted by his son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr), Tommy decided to escape the New York crime scene. After settling scores elsewhere, Tommy was last seen on Power leaving New York for a new life on the west coast of the USA – perfectly teeing up Starz spin-off series, Power Book V: Force.
Shortly after the Power finale caused divided opinions among Power fans, Starz announced the legacy of Ghost would live on in a series of spin-offs.
In fact, Power fans would be treated to four in all with the likes of Tariq and Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) returning in their own respective shows.
Luckily for Tommy fans, he also landed his own spin-off series, the final in a long line of sister shows.
Power Book V: Force will follow Tommy on his venture for a new life but spoilers and news has been scarce – until now.
- Power: Ghost star Omari Hardwick wows fans with powerful statement
Tommy actor Joseph Sikora has shed new light on the spin-off series in an interview with The Hot Zone.
Host Jason Robinson asked the Power star: “The big question that we all wanna know now is about your Power spin-off.
“When can we expect that? When is it coming?”
Joseph then revealed: “Well, the writers are deep – they’re writing.
“Because the [coronavirus] pandemic happened when it did, the writers smoothly transitioned,
“The writers’ room hadn’t been open very long before the pandemic hit because the Tommy show was the last one to go for whatever reason.
“But the writers, which was actually a happy accident, that the writers – like how you and me are talking now – this is what the writers do every day and they work for eight hour days every day.”
He added: “So they’re developing these characters, they’re gonna breeze through these scripts.
“Hopefully by the time we’re ready, we’re gonna see how far along the Tommy development of the story is and we’ll watch Tommy try and get his ass out to Los Angeles.”
The Power actor then shed new light on when fans can expect to catch a first glimpse at the series.
He revealed: “So I would say in a practical way you wouldn’t expect to see anything until next year
“But I think it’s gonna be fresh and served up hot, I think it’s gonna be a standalone show that’s gonna be really something special.”
