Curtis Jackson, popularly recognized by his stage name ‘50 Cent‘, has made great strides in the movie industry thanks to amazing shows such as Power and Power Book II. Through his big deal with Starz, the musician, producer and actor gave us the series BMF or the Black Mafia Family, inspired by the true stories of two brothers beating all the odds and rising from the lowly streets of Southwest Detroit.
The series debuted on September 26, 2021, with Starz reporting that it was the number one premiere of the year in their app. It also performed exceedingly well on other OTT platforms, as seen by the early numbers.
Randy Higgins co-produced the show and acts as the showrunner. Given the astounding performance recorded by the first season, viewers definitely want to know whether there will be a second season.
BMF Season 2 Release Date: Has BMF Been Renewed for a Second Season?
Fortunately, yes. News of the renewal came four days after the Season 1 Premiere and was announced by Starz, the production house. This may have followed its positive reception and excellent performance. The showrunner Randy Huggins confirmed that he would love to come back and shoot Season 2 in Detroit, given that only a fifth of the first season was shot there.
If the series repeat the previous season’s release date, we can anticipate it to air in late summer 2022.

BMF brought together many capable actors such as Flerony Junior, acting as Lil Meech, the son of the real Demetrius Flerony, Da’Vinchi from Grown-ish Russel Hornby from Grimm, Michele Briana White from Dead to Me and Ajiona Alexus, known from 13 Reasons Why.
Other cast members include Eric Kofi Abrefa from The One, Myles Truitt, Black Lightning and Steve Harris. We also have the renowned Snoop Dogg, Arkeisha Knight, La La Anthony and Serayah starring in recurring roles. This should explain why the first season did pretty well.
