Just 12 days after BMF returned for season 2, Starz has renewed the series for a third season.

The network announced the renewal Wednesday, saying the Detroit-based crime drama’s Jan. 6 premiere attracted 4.1 million multi-platform viewers.

BMF captures the essence of Detroit through elevated, gritty storytelling and our fans have passionately responded to this show more than ever before,” Kathryn Busby, president of original programming for Starz, said in a statement.

“Following such a strong debut with season two, we’re thrilled to continue to expand on the incredible story of the Flenory brothers as they change the game by writing their own rules,” Busby added.

The drug distribution drama is inspired by the true story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.

The two siblings rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s to create Black Mafia Family — one of the most influential drug rings in the U.S.

“Big Meech” is portrayed on the series by his son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. While Da’Vinchi portrays Terry. Russell Hornsby and Michole Briana White play their parents.

Additional cast members include Myles Truitt, Steve Harris, La La Anthony, Snoop Dogg, Kelly Hu, Mo’Nique, Leslie Jones, rapper Yung Miami, and Rama Montakhabi.

BMF is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, through his G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for Starz.

Detroit native Randy Huggins created the series and serves as showrunner, executive producer, and writer. Heather Zuhlke, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements are also executive producers.

The series airs Fridays on Starz.
