‘BMF’ Renewed For Season 3 After Hitting Over 4 Million Viewers On The Season Premiere
50 Cent does it again! With 4.1 million viewers over premiere weekend, we will see The Flenory brothers for a third season. Shortly after its Season 2 premiere on Jan. 6, Starz has ordered a third installment for “BMF.” The show is inspired by the true story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi), who formed the legendary crime syndicate Black Mafia Family in the 1980s. The Black Mafia Family would grow to be one of the most influential crime families in the country. G-Unit produces BMF in association with Starz parent Lionsgate Television.
“BMF captures the essence of Detroit through elevated, gritty storytelling and our fans have passionately responded to this show more than ever before,” Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming for Starz, said in a statement. “Following such a strong debut with Season 2, 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.”
Season two’s hour long drama kicked off with Meech and Terry battling against each other and shaping their drug business while forming new bonds. Meech wants to expand the business while Terry is focused on school and starting a legitimate business with their father. We were excited finally see Mo’Nique on screen as Goldie. She plays a strip club owner who helps Meech on his plight to weight outside of Detroit.
BMF Season 2 continues Friday (at 8/7c) with Episode 3, during which “Devil’s Night and a drug drought causes chaos and a spike in crime in the city of Detroit.” Make sure you are watching or read about it while everyone else is!
