Bumpy Johnson will be making his way down Malcolm X Boulevard in a Rolls Royce this winter. EPIX has announced that its hit series, Godfather of Harlem, will return for a new season on January 15, 2023.
“Bumpy is back,” one fan commented.
“Yes, can’t wait,” another fan wrote.
Unfortunately, the series will be missing a few key components in its latest run. Most notably, Paul Sorvino, who played the role of Frank Costello, passed away in July at the age of 83 years old.
“Rest in peace to Paul Sorvino. The only one that could do you is you,” the show stated.
Additionally, DMX, who appears on the Godfather of Harlem theme song, also passed away in April 2021 after 50 trips around the sun.
While the show mourns the loss of its two contributors, Godfather of Harlem will also move to a new home in season three. After spending two seasons on EPIX, the streaming service is set to be relaunched as MGM+.
“MGM is one of the most iconic and beloved brands from the golden age of entertainment,” Michael Wright of MGM+ said.
“This rebrand is a promise to existing and new viewers that MGM+ is the place to find television that reflects and celebrates the legacy of the iconic MGM brand — cinematic programming with sophisticated storytelling that entertains, delights, surprises and transports. MGM is television for movie lovers.”
