The Power Book lV: Force premiere took over the city, and HOT 97 was in attendance.

Rain, hail, sleet or snow- the cast of Power came out to celebrate the premiere of the highly anticipated new series, and yes- you heard right, Tommy is back! The new season is centered around Joseph Sikora’s fan-favorite character, Tommy Egan.

During a recent interview, Joesph says about the return of his character, “the audience has told us, ‘Listen, we’re up for whatever you give us, but we’ll follow Tommy wherever he goes,’” says Sikora. “I was walking through Bed-Stuy the other day and I had a bunch of teens that were, like, ‘Yo, Tommy, when’s the show dropping?!’ And that was as cool to me as this older couple that I met yesterday at a bar. After they paid their bill, they looked over and said, ‘Excuse me, Joseph, we just wanted to say we’re big fans and can’t wait for Force to come out in February.’ Like, wow, it’s such a blessing for everybody involved, especially me, the range of the permeation of the Tommy character and the expansiveness of people that are like, ‘I get this guy,’ and I think they get him because Tommy is a very exposed character. Not because he is exposed and becomes soft to the people he’s with, but because when we have those times of Tommy alone, where he’s not presenting himself in the streets, people can really see themselves in that, because we all have to be somebody else in public and somebody else in private. People can relate to his internal struggle.”

The new season kicks off of Power Book IV: Force kicks off this Sunday on Starz and will follow Tommy to Chicago as he leaves New York due to his tragedies.
