If you had nothing to do this past weekend, there will surely a number of television shows waiting for you on your favorite networks and streaming platforms. Not only did a new episode of Bel-Air debut on Thursday, but Peacock also renewed the drama for a third season. Elsewhere, Janine Nabers and Donald Glover debuted their highly-anticipated project, Swarm on Prime Video. To top it all off, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his talented team of writers, producers and actors launched a new season of Power Book II: Ghost and ended the second season of BMF. Celebrating the end of another successful season of BMF, showrunner Heather Zuhlke spoke to Variety and let fans know what they could expect in season three.
“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 (Steve Harris) and Jin. There are consequences to all these things. So you’re going to see all of that dramatized moving forward,” Zuhlke said when asked what viewers could expect in season three,” the BMF showrunner said.
Quickly, the conversation turned to one of the show’s most polarizing characters, Lamar. Zuhlke wouldn’t offer details as to what would happen to Lamar in season three, but the showrunner did offer insight regarding the themes that would be discussed next season.
“It’s a very universal theme too with addiction because everyone has a different bias. It can come in the form of a person, an object, a substance, a lifestyle,” Zuhlke said when asked about how the topic of addiction would be explored in season three.
Season three of BMF will likely air in early 2024 with two new additions — 2 Chainz and Ne-Yo.
