Starz has renewed “BMF,” the new series from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, for a second season.
The renewal comes just four days after the series premiere on Sunday, September 26.
“BMF” debuted as the No. 1 premiere on the Starz app this year and the episode also ranks as one of the most highly engaged series premieres ever across OTT platforms.
The series is inspired by the true story of two brothers, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi), from the inner-city streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980’s, who fostered the most prominent drug trafficking organization in the U.S., known as “Black Mafia Family.”
“BMF” explores the brothers’ lives, their family dynamics and their relationship with the community in an authentic manner that highlights their upbringing in a traditional family unit.
Their parents Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory (Michole Briana White), as well as their spiritual advisor, Pastor Swift (Snoop Dogg), push the brothers to pursue formal educations.
The tension between Meech and Terry’s blood family and the criminal family they formed to eradicate themselves from poverty creates inner conflict as the brothers pursue the ever-elusive American Dream.
50 Cent took to Instagram to share the news of the renewal writing:
