“Power Book IV: Force” follows fan-favorite “Power” character Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) after he leaves New York following the original series finale.

Zumbado will play Mireya Garcia.Mireya is smart, direct with a great sense of humor. She’s strong-willed, guarded, and not afraid to call you on your bad behavior. She’s also the younger sister of the most dangerous Mexican drug dealer in the city.
Hyman will play US Attorney Stacy Marks. Marks is from Chicago’s South Side and first worked as a public defender before earning her way into the U.S. Attorney’s Office. She’s an independent self-starter who’s young, hungry, and ready to make a name for herself.
Ramirez will play Miguel Garcia. Miguel is a mean, violent, and domineering alpha male. He’s never been in a long-term relationship because he lives to make money but will do anything to protect the ones he loves.
Walker will play Shanti “Showstopper” Page. Shanti is a prized ex-professional boxer that now runs her own gym. She is fearless and ambitious, a dangerous combination. Walker is represented by Gray Talent Group.
