The main character in the series is Demetrius Flenory aka Meech (played by Demetrius Flenory Jr.) who is a drug kingpin. His brother is Terry Flenory aka Southwest T (played by Da’Vinchi). Throughout the series, we see the trials and tribulations they go through to make a mark in the world of crime as they navigate money and power as well as law.

The first season was released on September 26, 2021, on Starz. The warm response of it inspired the makers to come up with its second season which premiered on January 6, 2023. Around the same time, BMF was renewed for a third season, which was released on March 1, 2024.

What Happened In The Last Season End?

In the first episode of BMF season 3 called Detroit vs Everybody, Meech shifts to Atlanta in order to further expand the operations of BMF. Meanwhile, Terry is still in Detroit to operate their empire. Meech realizes that moving to Atlanta won’t be easy and he will face his share of problems.

We get to see Meech meeting Rodney Green aka Greeny (Ne-Yo) at a strip club in Atlanta called Magic City. For the laundering of money, they connect with a guy named Goldie (Mo’Nique) and work towards creating a crew locally. This team includes Duffy (Terry Allen) as well as Stacks (2 Chainz). Meech goes into loggerheads with a rival locally named Remi (Jason C. Louder).

Away from the Motor City, Tee (Da’Vinchi) is covering the operation of coke for the brothers. There are other players in the business as well such as the Miami Killers. The third season had 10 episodes with the first season premiering on March 1st, 2024.

What Can We Expect From The Fourth Season?

Right before the third season premiered, the makers of BMF announced that a fourth season was also currently under development. The third season shows the Black Mafia Family spreading their business venture from their home state of Detroit.

Season 4 can continue to focus on the BMF organization as they expand their business successfully in the Peach State. The real-life BMF operated in many states in the USA which we can see being addressed in the upcoming seasons as the timeline touches the 1990s.

The real Mafia family did not cease to exist until the early 21st century. So we can expect the fourth season to take a look at the characters of detectives Jin and Bryant as they try to stop the BMF. During the quest, the season can also touch upon how the immense pressure to capture the mafia leads them into doing things that are illegal and unethical.

We can also expect certain time jumps in the story in order to quickly reach the finale. Overall, it depends on how Starz wants to stretch the story.

Do We Have A Release Date?

So far, no. Starz and the makers of BMF have not confirmed a release date for the fourth season. We can take a look at the timeline of how long it took for a new season to drop from the time they were greenlit.

While the first season dropped in 2021, the second and third seasons premiered in the years 2023 and 2024. So we can expect the much-awaited fourth season to be released sometime around 2025. That too if things go as planned.

Who Will Be In The Cast?

Demetrius Flenory Jr. (who plays the role of Demetrius Flenory aka ‘Meech’), and Da’Vinchi (who plays Terry Flenory aka ‘Southwest T’). Whenever a series is about the crime, underworld, or drug world, one can’t guarantee the safety of its characters.

So it’s hard to say which of the characters from BMF will be in the fourth season since the production of Season 4 is set to begin in Atlanta. But rest assured, some of the key characters will be there considering the life story of the real BMF.

We can also expect cameos and the addition of new cast members if a time jump takes place in the follow-up season. Michole Briana White (Lucille Flenory), Eric Kofi-Abrefa (Lamar Silas), Myles Truitt (B-Mickie), La La Anthony (Markisha Taylor), Kelly Hu (Detective Veronica Jin), Steve Harris (Detective Von Bryant) and Russel Hornsby (who plays Charles Flenory) are also expected to return.


BMF remains one of the most well-received and acclaimed crime series to come out in recent years. The real-life account of the Mafia Family is really interesting and has fascinated people for years. The series remains a faithful adaptation of the actual events while sprinkling fiction to add more drama to the story.

Consisting of tight writing and strong direction, the series remains an enjoyable and engaging watch throughout. The announcement of a fourth season has filled the hearts of all the fans with joy and excitement. People across the globe are eagerly waiting for the fourth season as they enjoy the third one.
