A popular crime series on Starz, BMF is preparing for its third season. The show is based on the real-life Black Mafia Family. The show, which was created by Randy Huggins and produced by 50 Cent, follows the ascent and decline of the criminal organization’s founders, Southwest T and Big Meech, in Detroit during the 1980s and 1990s.
With a stellar ensemble cast that includes Mo’Nique, Russell Hornsby, La La Anthony, Snoop Dogg, and Wood Harris, BMF made its debut in September 2021. The show, which is renowned for its compelling narrative, has captivated viewers with its depiction of the Black Mafia Family.
BMF Season 3 Release Date
According to IMBD, The third season of BMF will premiere on March 1, 2024. Additional BMF season 3 news is that on June 30, 2023, the season’s filming officially concluded (via Hot New Hip Hop). Flenory Jr. himself broke the news on social media, confirming that he had wrapped up filming season 3. At least it indicates that Black Mafia Family season 3 will have been released less than a year after the season 2 conclusion. Flenory Jr. gave no spoilers regarding the season and stayed silent about the BMF season 3 plot and what to expect.
BMF Season 3 Cast
Leading actors Flenory Jr. and Terry actor Da’Vinchi will undoubtedly make a comeback because the Flenory brothers are important to BMF’s story. Kash Doll won’t be in BMF season three because Monique sadly passed away in season two. Regarding the remainder of the group. Given that his character Lamar appeared to have passed out after abusing crack cocaine, leaving his fate uncertain, Eric Kofi-Abrefa may or may not make a comeback.
BMF regulars Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King, Arrow) and Steve Harris (Diary of a Mad Black Woman, The Practice), who portray the police detectives Bryant and Jin, respectively, are likewise doomed. Harris may return, but his character may have other goals now that Bryant has been deprived of his badge and made to pay for his violent son’s actions.
He is in a similar situation, as Jin and Bryant’s relationship still needs a lot of work. Russell Hornsby (In Treatment, Fences) as the brothers’ unfaithful father Charles, and Michole Briana White (Atlanta, Malignant) as their strong-willed mother Lucille round out the returning group.
There will also be celebrity cameos featuring the actors of BMF season 3. Rapper 2 Chainz and R&B singer Ne-Yo have signed on as BMF season 3 guest stars, according to BreAnna Bell of Variety. The two musicians will be joining a long list of celebrities who have appeared in BMF through cameos, such as rapper Snoop Dogg, who portrayed Pastor Swift.
Even Eminem, who has maintained a low profile in acting ever since spitting legendary freestyle raps in 8 Mile, made an appearance as FBI informant and drug dealer White Boy Rick in season 1. The new season of Black Mafia Family may feature non-musical celebrities, like as actor/comedian Mo’Nique and sports analyst Jalen Rose, who were featured in prior seasons.
BMF Season 3 Story Details
Season 3 could go into detail about some of the remaining aspects of the BMF plot. In the former Starz series Power, 50 Cent portrayed the vicious criminal Kanan. But the narrative of how Kanan got into crime in the first place was detailed in Power Book III: Kanan, the prequel. With BMF, Cent can finally tell a true story—unlike with the Power series. There are plenty more facets to delve into before the show likely comes to an end with Meech and Terry entering guilty pleas in 2007. Season 2 has only touched the tip of the gang member’s adult adventures. Since BMF has already covered the 1980s, there is still more ground to cover.
According to Urban Hollywood 411, the third season of BMF would follow the Flenory family as they attempt to reinvent themselves, with the story starting in the early 1990s. Hopefully, the brothers would also get to spend some time apart from law enforcement once Detective Bryant was fired. The two worked hard to make BMF a well-known criminal organization throughout Black Mafia Family season 2, and it appears that they are currently succeeding. But in a BMF season 3 scene, a necklace bearing the initials “BMF” is shown being placed inside an evidence envelope in a Starz trailer that the network released regarding several of its future series.
According to Deadline, Kathryn Busby, president of Starz’s original programming, has also alluded to some significant plot surprises for BMF season 3. According to the president, “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.” While without revealing any specific plot points for BMF season 3, Busby’s remarks hint at some significant shifts in the Black Mafia Family’s dynamic and all but confirm the considerably higher stakes.
