How would it feel to know how real-life mafia and underworld function? Is it how Netflix portrays it? Are the characters that strong or open to being vulnerable? Can cultural and ethnic differences change the kind of mafias we see around us? While drug cartels and related shows were getting fame, mafia and underdog stories became a hit.
Audiences preferred these shows as they had the right blend of suspense, thrill, and action. One such show that has been taking audiences on a roll was released in 2021 and has come up with two seasons so far. The Black Mafia Family, or BMF, is the real story of a black family turning into the mafia and indulging in organized crimes. The fans wonder if the show will be back for a new season. The good news is yes. Here is all we know so far about BMF Season 3.
BMF Season 3 Renewal Status
Created by Starz Network, owing to the success of season 2, the makers were quick to announce season 3 in Jan 2023, when the second season was still premiering and the third episode of the second season’s release was underway. The fans and their responses overwhelmed them. They spoke about how fans responded to the show passionately. The official post by Russell Hornsby filled the fans with joy. The fans were quick to react with glee in the comments section.
BMF Season 3 Release Date
The show has been really fast and completed the filming. In a video by Flenory Junior and DJ Akademiks, they converse about how season 3 has just been completed. Post that, there are reports picking on this hint and suggesting how the show wrapped up filming amidst the strikes. However, no confirmed release date is spoken about, and the writer’s strike can have a negative impact. But it is also assumed that after filming, the post-production and release process should not be much of a problem and is still a reality to be here by the end of 2023 or the start of 2024.
BMF Season 3 Cast
The official cast would include all the original mafias from season 2. There have been no announcements on who has left the show, but there are new additions to the cast, and the fans are thrilled. The cast is,

BMF Season 3 Plot
Despite no announcement or official synopsis yet, we can expect the show to pick up from the season 2 finale that came out in March 2023. However, in an interview, Zuhlke said: “What you’re going to see is the fallout and somatically all of our characters are in a season of reinvention across the board – Charles, Lucille, Meech, Terry, Bryant and Jin. There’s consequences to all these things. So you’re going to see all of that dramatized moving forward.”
In the finale episode of season two, we see that Detective Brian’s son, who is a juvenile and underage teenager, has killed his schoolyard bully, and it turns out that he used to be B-Micki’s gun. As per the juvenile justice system, he is behind bars. On the other hand, Lamar killed Monique, who is the mother of Michel’s child. He’s so guilty of the act that he gets into drug addiction. That takes him out for good because there are chances that, for these reasons, he might not be seen in the third season. The reason is that he’s so guilty and has started dwelling on drugs that he’s unaware of the reality and has also turned into a violent person going into a cocoon. Let us see if the third season tries to develop his character or just takes him out of there.
Is there a trailer for BMF season 3:
No. Until now, there has been no trailer as the production process is still underway. Once that completes, fans can expect a trailer, and then more clarity on season three’s plot can be expected.
Recap of BMF season 1 and 2:
With an IMDb rating of 7.5/10 and created by Randy Huggins, the story follows two brothers in Detroit who, in the hunger to make a name and turn from underdogs to people who are loved, known, and respected. They take the wrong path by indulging in organized white-collar crimes, like money laundering, and slowly become the mafias of that area. Slowly, they have more people joining that team with similar interests and struggles along with getting to more heinous crimes, like murderers in the process.
