“BET+ announces Thursday, April 7th, for the Season 3 launch of its original series AMERICAN GANGSTER: TRAP QUEENS.

Premiere episodes will feature the stories of Kimberly Smedley, Candace Wilson, Gina Cabell, Shontel Greene, and Tonia Taylor; whose crimes range from black market butt injections to dark web identity theft, opioid pill mills and drug trafficking.
This season of TRAP QUEENS will offer epic, tragic and significant cautionary tales of women seduced by the allure of the underworld to become ultimate crime bosses.

The series portrays each Queen’s compelling story through first-hand accounts interwoven with archival footage and subtle recreations giving viewers a resonant and visceral experience.
“Trap Queens combines great storytelling with the real-life journeys of female crime bosses as they rise, fall, and seek redemption,” said Judge Greg Mathis, the series executive producer.
