You may be wondering when the anticipated Power Book IV: Force season 2 finale is coming - shouldn't it be next week, with the penultimate episode this week?


Well, the series is taking a short break, and so there's no new episode this week. We know, we know, it's just a further tense wait to see how the season will wrap up - but something tells us the wait will be worth it.

We're at a very tense point of the show now, with only two episodes of the gritty drama's second season left to go – and there's even more to play for.

We follow Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), Ghost's former right-hand man, as he is forced to contend with plenty of new problems and enemies of his own in this Power spin-off series.

With episode 8 having landed on Lionsgate+ last week, we know that the stakes in the Chicago drug world just continue to heat up - as Tommy is all too aware of the fact that the FBI are on to his business.

This season has followed Tommy and Diamond (Isaac Keys), who are pushing through with their major Chicago takeover plan - but it seems like they've got a few things to worry about in the meantime.

And we know that there are more dramatic events to come, as teased by supervising producer Lisa Demaine.

In an interview with Variety, Demaine revealed: "There’s a lot of story from now to the end. I can tell you that [episode 9] is also epic and big and sweeping. The Stacy Marks task force is growing, and her reach is reaching out and seeping in.

"People die. The drug-dealing world is dangerous and dirty, and [episode 9] is big in a different way."

The third spin-off series from the gritty world of Power is certainly packed with drama, and is once more masterminded by Courtney A Kemp and 50 Cent.

And if you're still wanting more of a Power fix, have no fear, as Lionsgate+ has got you covered with the likes of Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan, which similarly feature all the action, drama and twists fans have come to expect from the franchise.

But when can we expect new episodes of Power Book IV: Force season 2 to land? And what is the full schedule for this season?

Read on for everything you need to know about the release schedule.

Power Book IV: Force season 2 trailer

The trailer for the second season shows that Tommy has a pretty major plan of allowing the other Chicago drug lords to get distracted by in-fighting and enemies so that he can slide on in as the next big shot.

If there's one thing Tommy's known for, it's being trigger happy - so expect lots of explosive drama and plenty of gun fights. It wouldn't be a Power season without it, right? Watch the trailer below.

Power Book IV: Force season 2 will air every Friday on Starz in the US and on Lionsgate+ through Amazon Prime Video in the UK. Season 1 is available to stream in full now.
