Starz has ordered BMF Season 3 after a successful second-season premiere on January 6 that attracted 4.1 million multiplatform viewers, with several platforms yet to report.

BMF is inspired by true legends 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 Season 3 will be executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (executive Producer of the Power Universe, For Life, Hip Hop Homicides), 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 is the executive overseeing the series on behalf of Lionsgate.
BMF stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, Da’Vinchi (The Way Back, grown-ish), Russell Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give), and Michole Briana White (Dead to Me, She Hate Me).
Also starring are Myles Truitt (Black Lightning, The New Edition doneStory), Steve Harris (The Practice, Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King, The Orville), and La La Anthony (The Chi, Think Like a Man).
The cast is rounded out by Detroit rapper Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight, Snoop Dogg (Training Day), Leslie Jones (Coming 2 America, Saturday Night Live), Christine Horn (Snowfall), Sydney Mitchell (First Wives Club), Rayan Lawrence (Underground), and Serayah (Empire, Favorite Son) in recurring roles and Mo’Nique (Precious, The Parkers) as a guest star.
In addition, Caresha “Yung Miami” Brownlee will make a guest appearance this season.
BMF continues to humanize the choices of the brothers and their pursuit of the American Dream. Rooted in family, loyalty, and brotherhood, the series continues to explore the brothers’ complex familial 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).
Rooted in authenticity and told with grit, heart, and humor, we parachute into the season with Meech and Terry at odds. Meech wants to expand the business beyond Detroit, yet Terry is no longer in the game and is focused on school and launching a legitimate car-ride service with his Pops.
As the season unfolds, the streets implode and the brothers risk losing everything. We find out what happens to Meech and Terry as they both seek to become stronger than ever and strategically execute a new vision.
Along the way, they meet and form an alliance with Goldie (Oscar-winner Mo’Nique), a sophisticated Atlanta strip club owner, who helps Meech forge his future. As the brothers reflect on their wins, little do they know that their new beginnings will also be plagued with new obstacles.
