Godfather of Harlem

The Emmy-winning drama series Godfather of Harlem, which stars Forest Whitaker and was co-created by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein (Narcos), has received a 10-episode order for a fourth season from MGM+. The filming of the upcoming season will start in the Big Apple in the coming year. As a division of Disney Television Studios, ABC Signature produces the show.

One of the best-performing original series on MGM+, Godfather of Harlem ranks first all-time in subscriber acquisition. With 54% African American viewers in Season 3, it’s also the most popular series on the platform among African American viewers.

Season four finds Whitaker’s Bumpy Johnson (The Godfather) waging a bloody war against the Mafia families of New York City for control of Harlem. Meanwhile, he faces new competition from Frank Lucas, a newly arrived Black gangster. In addition to dealing with the terrible death of Malcolm X, Bumpy also has to deal with the fact that his daughter Elise (Antoinette Crowe-Legacy) was involved with the Black Panthers .

“Forest Whitaker’s inspired performance as Bumpy Johnson has introduced an iconic, archetypal television antihero to the premium television landscape,” said Michael Wright, head of MGM+. “The cast and creative team exceed expectations every single season, both creatively and cinematically. We couldn’t be more delighted to embark on a fourth season with this incredibly talented group of people.”

Chris Brancato, who was also involved in the creative process, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work with Michael Wright and his MGM+ team alongside ABC Signature. “This show has been a labor of love, and we dedicate this season to Paul Eckstein, my friend and co-creator, who passed unexpectedly this summer.”

“After such a long time away, I’m so excited to be returning to set alongside such an incredible cast, crew, and creative team, under the powerful leadership of Chris Brancato. We’re so appreciative of Michael Wright’s support at MGM+, and thrilled that Godfather of Harlem has resonated with fans around the world. We can’t wait to get to work on season four!” said Forest Whitaker.

Antoinette Crowe-Legacy (Geechee, Passing), Erik LaRay Harvey (Boardwalk Empire, Luke Cage), Ilfenesh Hadera (She’s Gotta Have It, Baywatch), Lucy Fry (Bright, Vampire Academy) and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) (as star and executive producer) all return for Season 4.

Acheson, Brancato, Forest Whitaker, Paul Eckstein, Nina Yang Bongiovi, and Smith are the executive producers of the ABC Signature series. Swizz Beatz is the executive producer of the music.
