Starz’s BMF is on hiatus until season 2. However, fans of the explosive series will have something to look forward to until we return to the ’80s. Executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson just announced a docuseries that will be based not just on Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory but also on the BMF organization as a whole.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming BMF docuseries.
Starz’s drama series ‘BMF’ is based on a true story
Set in the 1980s, BMF chronicles the lives of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi). The brothers came of age in the 1980s amid the crack cocaine episodic. In an effort to pull their family out of poverty, they began selling drugs eventually becoming two of the biggest drug traffickers in the country.
Though the drama series chronicles the Flenorys beginnings, the new Starz BMF docuseries will offer something more.
50 Cent’s new Starz documentary series on ‘BMF’ will give fans a deeper look into the Flenory brothers
Thus far on BMF, we’ve only begun to see the beginnings of Terry and Demetrius’ rise in the drug game. But so much happened in the years following their time as the 50 Boyz. As a result, 50 Cent will be debuting a BMF-centered documentary series on Starz.
The eight-episode docu-series will focus on the larger aspects of BMF and will be executive produced by the Power Universe producer and Shan Nicholson. “The success of ‘BMF’ demonstrates a continued rise in fan demand and interest in the story of the Flenory Brothers,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President, and CEO at STARZ in a recent press release. “We’re excited to dive deeper into the world of Black Mafia Family in this new project with Curtis, Shan, and the teams at G-Unit and Jigsaw.” 50 Cent added, “The Docu-Series will offer an inside look at different perspectives from all of those involved, BMF…. Blowing Money Fast.”
As fans know by the time they were arrested the Flenorys were worth $100 million each and they weren’t even speaking.
When will ‘BMF’ Season 2 debut?
After just one episode of the Detroit-based drama, Starz renewed BMF for a second season. Though the season has not begun filming just yet, we do know that it’s on the horizon for a 2022 debut. In fact, BMF creator Randy Huggins, who was born and raised in Detroit around the same era as the Flenorys is already giving fans hints about what they can expect.
As fans of the series know, at the end of season 2, Terry took the money that he won from his botched surgery and walked away from Meech and the game. Knowing what happens in real-life, we know that Terry eventually gets pulled back in, but we’re not exactly sure how or when that all goes down.
“What’s really interesting about Demetrius and Terry is they really didn’t blow up in Detroit,” Huggins said told The Detroit Free Press. By the time the brothers were arrested in 2004, they had expanded their business tenfold into Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Undoubtedly, season 2 will see Demetrius try to press on without Terry and mark Terry’s eventual return to the drug game.
