Today, STARZ released a riveting trailer featuring Tupac Shakur’s “All Eyez on Me” and key art for season three of its gripping crime and family drama BMF, premiering on Friday, March 1 at midnight on the STARZ app. On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 8:00 PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.
Inspired by true legends, BMF continues the story of brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who rose through the illegal drug trade from the depths of poverty in Detroit to the heights of fame and fortune across America.
In season three, Meech moves to Atlanta to expand their empire, facing rival crews and crossing paths with burgeoning hip-hop legends, while Terry holds down the fort in Detroit, facing formidable rivals, old and new.
STARZ viewers will be treated to history in the making, as BMF’s dominance in the streets influences both music and culture, spreading from Atlanta, GA, up and down the eastern seaboard in the early 1990s. Meech and Terry pride themselves on being able to provide for their families, communities, and friends, though their youth prevents them from fully recognizing the real costs.
Meanwhile, systemic and structural racism continues to fuel their quest for freedom: Freedom from poverty–which the country’s laws were designed to keep them in–and freedom from any and every rule that dares to hold them back.
The dynamic brother duo faces obstacles on all fronts but will stop at nothing to achieve their piece of the American dream. The Flenory brothers and the incredible and memorable characters they meet along the way propel this fascinating coming-of-age story unlike any you’ve seen before.
BMF season three stars returning actors Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. as Demetrius Flenory, Da’Vinchi as Terry Flenory, Russell Hornsby as Charles Flenory, Michole Briana White as Lucille Flenory, Steve Harris as Detective Bryant, Kelly Hu as Detective Jin, La La Anthony as Markisha, Sydney Mitchell as LaWanda, and Laila D. Pruitt as Nicole Flenory.
Previously announced special guest stars include Grammy Award winners Dominique “Lil Baby” Jones making his acting debut as Payne, NE-YO as Rodney “Greeny” Green, 2 Chainz as Stacks, Grammy-nominated artist and actress Saweetie as Keeya, and Cynthia Bailey as Gloria.
BMF is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television production company (executive producer of the Power Universe), alongside creator, executive producer, and Detroit native Randy Huggins (Power) with showrunner and executive producer Heather Zuhlke (Power).
Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series. BMF is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television production company in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ.
BMF continues the story of the inspiring true legends, brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi), who founded one of the most influential crime families in the country, the Black Mafia Family.
We parachute into the early ’90s in season three, with Meech moving to Atlanta, hoping to grow the BMF empire in the south and rise to the top of the Atlanta drug scene. At the same time, Terry remains in the “D,” handling business there, not yet aware of all the dangers lurking around the corner.
Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory’s (Michole Briana White) marriage remains on the rocks, and Detective Bryant (Steve Harris), on probation from work, and Detective Jin (Kelly Hu) find themselves on opposite sides of the law, but might find common ground in their determination to take down BMF.
Additionally, season three includes special guest stars recurring throughout the season, who cross paths with Meech and Terry in this next phase of their unbelievable journey.
