Godfather of Harlem Season 3 is an upcoming installment of American crime drama series created by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein for Epix.
It stars Forest Whittaker in the lead role of a big criminal named Bumpy Johnson who has returned from 10 years imprisonment in the early 1960s.
The true crime television series is produced by Zach Calig, Resheida Brady, and Michael Maccarone under Chris Brancato Inc, Significant Productions, and ABC Signature studios.
Will there be a season 3 of Godfather of Harlem?
Yes, there will be a season 3 of Godfather of Harlem because the original network EPIX has renewed the series for a third season in January 2022 for ten more episodes.
The filming for the new season has been already ongoing in New York since summer 2022 and is expected to wrap around Oct 2022.
Season 1 premiered in 2019 and renewed for a second season in Feb 2020 that aired in April 2021. On 13 January 2022, a third season was announced by the original network.
Godfather of Harlem Season 3 Release Date and Time
Season 3 of Godfather of Harlem is expected to release around March 2023 on EPIX and HULU.
The streaming network has already confirmed that there will be a total of ten episodes in this season with an average runtime of 55 minutes. A TV show creation requires effort from the creators, cast, and crew members.
Whenever a show gets a renewal, the creators are under pressure to make another successful installment. Moreover, the role of casting members plays a pivotal role that can make or break the series.
The whole production team carries out everything cautiously and this is the reason why a new season release can take up to months or even years like Beetlejuice 2, another awaited sequel which hasn’t released yet.
But this EPIX original series is special and creators are working hard to release another season around March 2023 inside the United States.
The staff members are motivated with the fortuitous success of the show’s second season and they are working day & night to bring another season as soon as possible.
Where can I watch Godfather of Harlem season 3?
Season 1 and 2 of the series are exclusively streaming for EPIX subscribers and whenever Godfather of Harlem season 3 becomes available, it will be released on the same platform.
EPIX and Hulu subscribers are in luck as they will be able to stream the new episodes of Godfather of Harlem since the first day of release.
Who will cast in the new season of Godfather of Harlem?

What will happen in Godfather of Harlem season 3?
Season 2 was about seizing the control of the French Connection pipeline that run from Marseilles to NYC. Bumpy did the acquisition very well by taking inspiration from Malcolm’s message on Black economic nationalism.
The upcoming season will be focusing more on the family of Bumpy and Malcolm X as season 2 finale has already covered the 1960s when criminal underworld was on the rise. Also, Johnson will try to bring his gang members back from the prison.
