EPIX finally confirmed that Godfather of Harlem will return for a third season following its successful second season.
According to EPIX’s official release, the third season of Godfather of Harlem will be broadcast in 2022. Johnson was freed from prison after serving an 11-year sentence, and he now faces the challenge of rebuilding the criminal empire he left behind while incarcerated.
Godfather of Harlem’s third season, which will have ten episodes, will begin filming this summer in New York. Awaiting news of the show’s renewal has been an anxious wait since the season 2 conclusion of the critically acclaimed series shattered network streaming records to become EPIX’s highest-rated finale ever.
It’s going to take Bumpy Johnson three seasons to take over the Harlem underworld, and he’s going to square up against the Italian mob and the Cuban Mafia in that time.
Reclaiming Bumpy’s former empire will be a difficult path, and he may have to risk the lives of those he cares about as other violent crime bosses vie for dominance in his territory. EPIX’s Godfather of Harlem returns this fall, and if the quality of the last two seasons is any indicator, fans will be in for a treat.
