Shane Johnson is looking for love.

The “Power Book II: Ghost” actor feels resentful that his character — US Attorney Cooper Saxe — has not landed a romantic connection this season.

“A love interest would be really interesting and also open up a side of Cooper Saxe that I think will be fun to include in the ‘Power’ universe. But it may be seeing another side of Cooper Saxe that many may not want to see,” he told The Post.

However, he does have some co-stars in mind who would fit the bill.

“For Cooper’s love interest, I will go back to the deceased US Attorney Angela Valdes (Lela Loren) for very twisted reasons,” he said. “Not because he loved her or was into her, but it was a power dynamic thing. That sex-is-power kind of thing. That I got that conquest — it will be a real feather in my cap. But I don’t think it would be romantic.”

He added, “I think Cooper Saxe tries — he tries to be a friend, he tries to be a lover — but at this point any sex that Cooper is having he is paying for.

“Power Book II: Ghost” airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on Starz.
