Godfather Of Harlem renewed for a second series

It’s a source of some frustration that US series Godfather Of Harlem has not been picked up by a UK broadcaster yet, despite the series finishing in American two months ago.

News reaches us that the series has already been recommissioned for a second series.

Set in the 1960s, Godfather Of Harlem tells the true story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Forest Whitaker), who returned home after ten years in prison to find the neighbourhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy took on the Genovese crime family to regain control.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that it has been renewed.

Godfather of Harlemseason one was a remarkable success, tripling previous viewership numbers for the network and earning acclaim from both critics and viewers alike,” said Epix president Michael Wright. “We couldn’t wait to reunite with Chris, Paul, Forest and the team at ABC Signature to continue telling this compelling and extremely relevant story.”
