The air has become tenser between Bumpy Johnson and Malcolm X as Bumpy’s desire for power left Malcolm with no choice but to go against him in the finale. But can they reunite in Godfather Of Harlem Season 3? While the ending left fans wondering how things would sort between them the pair, the big question arises here is whether Epix could return with the third season or not. Well, let’s see what the creators have to say about it.
Created by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein, the series explore crime boss, Bumpy struggling to get back his power from the Italian mob. It takes place in the 1960s when Bumpy returns after spending ten years in prison. He learned that the Italian mob had taken control of the neighborhood. So he decides to regain control. But his action resulted in a colossal battle that threatens to destroy the entire city.
Godfather Of Harlem Season 3: Has It Renewed Yet?
The second season has just wrapped up airing on Epix, and now everyone is wondering whether Bumpy could ever return. Fortunately, neither the network has canceled the series nor renewed it. Thus chances of hearing pleasant news are pretty high. Even since the series debut, it has been the most-watched show on the platform and also garnered an Emmy award on its list. Further, the second season gained an 8.9 positive response on IMDb with a hike in rating to the first season.
However, the series renewal is based on the viewership it received. But the network hasn’t yet revealed the ratings and viewership of the second run. Well, deeming that Epix took a couple of months to renew the show for the second run, we expect it would take the same amount of time to decide the fate of the series. Thus, sometime in October, we could hear whether Godfather Of Harlem would return for season 3 or not.
The Creators Are Hoping To Return
Despite the series fate remains up in the air, the creators are looking forward to exploring Bumpy’s story. The series creator Chris Brancato revealed in June 2021 press release that he and his co-creator Paul Eckstein have already mapped the third run. They know which direction the show would take and how Bumpy’s past actions could affect his future. Further, as per the report, they have envisioned the show as a six-cycle run. So perhaps it could return for the third run.
Godfather Of Harlem Season 3: What To Expect?
Throughout season 2, Bumpy was after the infamous heroin pipeline known as the French Connection that runs from Marseilles to New York City. However, to gain control over it, he made some fierce choices. That means open war with huge crime families of the city. But his urge to win over the city put him at odds with his wife, daughter, as well as Malcolm, who supported him in his journey.
So now, it would become a tug of war where Bumpy has to decide which path he wanted to select. Further, the creator has already confirmed that the next run would explore Bumpy on the path of redemption. As he would learn what his action means for his community. Chris mentioned in the interview that it would be entirely a learning experience. Now Bumpy could find himself alone on this path. As for Malcolm, the unusual help arrived in the finale, and his relationship with that person could explore deeper in the next run.
