After much anticipation, BET+ has finally announced the fate of its popular music-driven drama. Earlier this February, BET+ officially renewed Kingdom Business Season 2.

However, this shows the streamer’s fate in the series and how passionate they are to bring such a story to their audience’s plate. As per the ratings, the pilot episode received 0.63 million watch hours. But sadly, the viewership dropped in the second episode.
However, in the case of scripted series, the drop in viewership is quite often. But throughout the season, the show saw a hike in viewership from the third episode. Sadly, the finale didn’t receive much appreciation from the fans. However, the overall response to the show was great. It did manage to score 7.5 stars out of 10 on IMDb. Thus, the creator, including the streamer, looks forward to returning with Kingdom Business Season 2 to give justice to their first season.
Has Production Begun?
Good news! The production is currently underway in Atlanta. As per the reports, the series executive Holly Carter, DeVon Franklin, and multi-Grammy-award-winner Michael Van Dyck and Kirk Franklin have started working on the principle photography. A month ago, CBS News dropped casting call news. Hylton Casting is currently casting new faces as a core group of stand-ins for Kingdom Business Season 2. The casting will continue till April 2023. A week ago, the outlet again shared another piece of the announcement. As per the reports, the network is looking for background actors for the second season, as the filming has already begun.
Kingdom Business Season 2: Cast Details
While the show is looking for more background actors, it’s safe to say that your favorite characters will return for the second season. Back then, Deadline reported that Yolanda Adams would return as series lead reprising her role as “Queen of Gospel” Denita Jordan. Serayah will join her as Rbel, an upcoming gospel star with a troubled past. She continues to threaten Denita’s crown and her legacy. Joining as recurring guest stars are Louis Gossett Jr. and Loretta Devine as Denita’s parents Jeremiah and Darlene.
Musical guests in Kingdom Business Season 2 include Billboard and Grammy Award winners Chandler Moore and Tasha Cobbs Leonard. The duo earned a Grammy Award for their Christian Music Album. Apart from them, some more faces from the first season will return too. These include Tamar Braxton as Sasha, Kiandra Richardson as C.J. Jordan-Walker, and La’Myia Good as Essence. However, whether Michael Beach will return for the second season remains unclear. His character, Bishop Calvin Jordan’s fate, remains in limbo as the closing moment hints at his death.
Kingdom Business Season 2: What Will Happen Next?
The first season follows Denita Jordan’s struggle to balance her life as the Queen of Gospel Music at Kingdom Records in Atlanta. While her husband is Bishop at First Kingdom, she still continues to lead the church. She has little patience for insurrection among her employees and family. But their life turns dark when a new powerhouse performer enters the gospel world. Rbel is a new gospel singer who challenges Denita. However, being a young pole dancer makes things difficult for her.
However, the season finale left the audience in awe with a cliffhanger ending for Michael Beach’s character. In the end, fans saw Bishop Calvin Jordan at the altar in deep reflection. But suddenly, we heard a gunshot, and before it could reveal the fate of Calvin, the credits rolled. So the upcoming season will reveal the future of Calvin and who got shot. If Calvin receives the gunshot, it will likely create a problem for Denita. She will face emotional turmoil while trying to balance her work life.
Kingdom Business Season 2: Release Date
The series was initially developed for NBC. But it later moved to BET+. Hence it took almost two years to land on the screen. However, it won’t be the case with Kingdom Business Season 2. As mentioned above, the filming has already started, so returning to your screen will take little time. Typically, filming takes almost six months to wrap up before undergoing post-production. Based on it, we expect that the second season will air sometime in the fall of 2023.
