Starz is looking forward to giving fans more “Black Mafia Family” content!!
The network just officially announced that “Black Mafia Family” will return for a Season 3 although the news already slipped out at the premiere event for Season 2.
The premium channel made the announcement on Tuesday, sharing that the drama series ranked as the most socially engaged drama across all networks over premiere weekend with 4.1 million multiplatform viewers.
Words from Kathryn Busby, president of original programming for Starz:
“’BMF’ captures the essence of Detroit through elevated, gritty storytelling and our fans have passionately responded to this show more than ever before. Following such a strong debut with season two, we’re thrilled to continue to expand on the incredible story of the Flenory brothers as they change the game by writing their own rules. We can’t wait to see what our extraordinary producers and cast deliver next.”
50 Cent also teases a “BMF” universe that’s currently in the works!
The show is now airing Season 2:
“BMF returns for a second hit season as it dramatizes the inspiring true story of two brothers, Demetrius ‘Big Meech’ Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry ‘Southwest T’ Flenory (Da’Vinchi), who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late ’80s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in the country: Black Mafia Family.
“BMF, told with grit, heart and humor, continues to humanize the choices of the brothers and their pursuit of the American Dream. Rooted in family, loyalty and brotherhood, the series explores the brothers’ complex relationships with their parents, Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory (Michole Briana White), who seek counsel from their spiritual advisor, Pastor Swift (Snoop Dogg).
“BMF” is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson alongside showrunner, executive producer, writer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (“Star,” “Rebel,” “Power”). Heather Zuhlke, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series. “BMF” is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ. Senior Vice President of Original Programming Kathryn Tyus-Adair is the executive overseeing “BMF” on behalf of STARZ. Erin Conroy oversees the series on behalf of Lionsgate.
