EPIX has released a teaser trailer to the second season of its acclaimed series, Godfather Of Harlem. Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes and premiere on Epix in April 2021. The first season premiered in September 2019.
Godfather of Harlem tells a story inspired by infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Oscar winner Forest Whitaker), who in the early 1960s returned from eleven years in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control. During the brutal battle, he forms an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X – catching Malcolm’s political rise in the crosshairs of social upheaval and a mob war that threatens to tear the city apart. Godfather of Harlem is a collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement during one of the most tumultuous times in American history.
