Well, that was fast! Just five days after its strong Season 1 premiere, Starz has ordered a second season of the drama series BMF (aka Black Mafia Family) from executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and writer/executive producer and Detroit native Randy Huggins.

The renewal news is a show of confidence that even after one episode, BMF is showing great ratings promise. Per “Deadline“, BMF debuted as the No. 1 premiere on the Starz app this year, according to the premium cabler, and based on preliminary reporting, the episode also ranks as one of the most highly engaged series premieres ever across OTT platforms. The series premiered worldwide across all Starz platforms, including on Starz in the U.S. and Canada, and day and date internationally on the StarzPlay premium streaming platform across Europe, Latin America, and Japan. Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of Starz, had this to say about the early renewal:

“Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson continues to find and cultivate stories like BMF that are culturally relevant, bringing the network important untold stories that are incredibly diverse both in front of and behind the camera. Following such a strong debut, we’re excited to see what Curtis, Randy, and the award-worthy cast deliver in the second season.”

BMF is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in this country. The series stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory; along with Da’Vinchi, Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Ajiona Alexus, Eric Kofi Abrefa Myles Truitt, and Steve Harris. Snoop Dogg, Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight, Wood Harris, La La Anthony appear in recurring roles.
