Godfather of Harlem is getting ready to take a break. The EPIX drama, which stars Forest Whitaker, airs its mid-season finale tonight but will return with new episodes on August 8th.
Vincent D’Onofrio, Ilfenesh Hadera, Nigél Thatch, Giancarlo Esposito, Lucy Fry, Rafi Gavron, Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, Erik LaRay Harvey, and Demi Singleton also star in the series which follows the life of 1960s gangster Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker).
EPIX revealed more about the return of Godfather of Harlem in a press release.
“Godfather of Harlem Season 2 finds Bumpy Johnson battling the New York Crime Families for control of the lucrative and murderous “French Connection,” the pipeline for heroin that runs from Marseilles to New York Harbor. With a distribution syndicate that includes black crime bosses from other major U.S. cities, Bumpy takes a cue from his friend Malcolm X’s message of black economic nationalism. His ambitious plan will face challenges from not only the Italians but his wife Mayme, daughter Elise, rival Adam Clayton Powell, prosecutor Robert Morgenthau, and even Malcolm himself. Once again, Godfather of Harlem explores the collision of the criminal underworld and civil rights in the colorful, tumultuous year of 1964.
In addition to Oscar winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) as star and executive producer, season 2 sees the return of cast members Vincent D’Onofrio (Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Daredevil), Ilfenesh Hadera (She’s Gotta Have It, Baywatch), Nigél Thatch (Selma, American Dreams), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian), Lucy Fry (Bright, Vampire Academy), Rafi Gavron (A Star is Born), and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy. Cast members Erik LaRay Harvey (Luke Cage) and Demi Singleton (King Richard) have been upped to series regulars.”

Wtf is going on? I have been checking for the next episode. I ordered prime video just for this reason since the first season began. I had to pay extra for EPIX in order to view it. All of the characters put pieces to the puzzle together. I didn’t know there was a tie in to the 3 men in Alabama that went missing. 2 white and 1 black that were found dead. Wether it is true or not, it would make sense that the KKK was forced to tell by Mobster from NY. This show is more exciting than… Read more »
It was actually Gregory Scarpa who went to Mississippi/Alabama sent by the FBI to find out where the bodies were. Scarpa tortured them viciously until they talked. It’s cool they put it on the show though. True story
