Forest Whitaker in first trailer for Godfather of Harlem season 3
Bumpy Johnson's battle for Harlem continues in the gangster drama's third season.
Forest Whitaker is set to reprise the role of gangster Bumpy Johnson in season 3 of Godfather of Harlem.
The Lionsgate+ series will air in the UK from October, and a trailer exclusive to RadioTimes.com – which you can watch above – teases what's in store for the mob boss and the rest of the ensemble cast. Spoiler alert, it's nothing good.
Bumpy's ongoing battle for control of Harlem continues as he prepares to take on the Cuban Mafia. And they won't go down easy.
"Taking on the Cuban mob will put Bumpy, his loved ones, and his community in the crosshairs of not only the rival Italians, but ruthless Latin assassins and, ultimately, the CIA," a statement released by Lionsgate revealed.
We certainly get a glimpse of that in the trailer, as well as the cast, which includes returning members including Daredevil's Vincent D’Onofrio as Vincent “Chin” Gigante, Ilfenesh Hadera (She’s Gotta Have It) as Bumpy's wife Mayme and icon Giancarlo Esposito as Adam Clayton Powell Jr.

And yes, Whoopi Goldberg (Sister Act, The Color Purple) is also set to return in her guest-starring role as Miss Willa.
Some new faces have been added too. Sweet Girl's Michael Raymond-James joins as Joe Colombo. Jason Alan Carvell will be playing Malcolm X and while Yul Vazquez is Jose Battle.
"It's time to fight," the trailer teasers, and we don't doubt it.
