Power's Tommy Egan, portrayed by actor Joseph Sikora, is getting his own sequel.
Power as we know it may have ended, but it's not the end for one of the show's most beloved characters.
Fan favourite Tommy Egan is getting his own spin-off show, one of many that STARZ have commissioned in the wake of the popular show's explosive finale.
Tommy's spin-off, titled 'Power Book IV: Force', will debut after the hotly-anticipated prequel series 'Power Book III: Raising Kanan', which is set to air in 2021.
The following prequel starring Larenz Tate, titled 'Power Book V: Influence', will air shortly after. In the meantime, the first sequel, 'Power Book II: Ghost' will be dropping on Sunday, September 6, 2020.
“‘Power’ has been one of the most successful series in premium pay television during its six-year run, garnering more than 10 million multiplatform views in its last two seasons and we can’t wait to take fans in a whole new direction as we pick-up Tommy’s story with ‘Power Book IV: Force,’” said Christina Davis, STARZ' president of programming.
Tommy's spin-off will focus on journey from New York to Los Angeles following the dramatic events of the original series finale.
All the spin-offs will be executively produced by show creator Courtney A. Kemp and 50 Cent.
Earlier this year, Jospeh Sikora, the actor who portrays Tommy, posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a cap with the words "TOMMY SEASON ONE" emblazoned on it.
"Who’s READY?!!!!" he captioned the snap with a reel of fire emojis. Interestingly, Sikora tagged the location of the photo as 'Start of Route 66'.
The iconic US highway spans across the country from the East Coast, where Tommy has always lived, to the West Coast. In the final season of Power, we see Tommy set this sights on California to relocate his drug business.
Sikora's Power costars La La Anthony and Michael Rainey Jr. jumped in the comments with messages of support, while Power co-creator 50 Cent reposted the image.

"My favorite character since season 4 TOMMY @josephsikora4 LETS GO!" the rapper captioned his post. However, STARZ are yet to officially confirm the spin-off, so don't get too excited.
So far, the only confirmed Power spin-off is 'Power Book II: Ghost'. Also set in New York, the show stars Mary J. Blige and is set just weeks after the final episode of the Power season six.
