The gangster drama Godfather of Harlem just wrapped up with its first season, and there are a lot many reasons for Godfather Of Harlem Season 2 to happen. However, the second season has not yet received an official greenlight, and we’re hopeful that a second might be on the cards. A lot of storyline is yet untold.
Godfather of Harlem follows the story of Bumpy Johnson. Johnson is a real-life infamous crime boss. He comes back home in the early years of 1960 after spending ten years in Alcatraz. He spends a lot of time finding his old neighborhood, Harlem. After all this, he comes to know that now, that neighborhood is under an Italian Mob.
However, Johnson doesn’t want to pick a fight. He nevertheless is determined to bring his neighborhood back in his control. He asks for help from Civil Rights Leaders and forms alliances to get back in the position of power. At one point, it was possible that Bumpy could be some crime lord who only cares for the money, but he is a family man with a strict moral code.
The first season of the series concluded on 1st December with a lot many loose ends. This indicates a possibility for a second season. Since Godfather of Harlem is on the cards, here are the details of what could happen in Godfather Of Harlem Season 2.
What Fans Have Seen So Far?
The Finale episode of Godfather of Harlem focused on President Kennedy and his death. The episode also addressed the kind of impact it had on the mafia community. While Bumpy Johnson gets arrested by the Genovese crime family, Chin Gigante hires a hitman to take Bumpy out. However, with Elise’s help, Bumpy successfully escapes the situation.
As soon as Nigel Thatch realizes that he is not allowed to voice his opinions, he leaves the Nation of Islam. Thatch later ends up being the Muslim minister of America. He plays the role of a very popular human rights activist in the civil rights movement. He became well known for the controversial statements for the rights of black people. By the end of the show, Bumpy, and Thatch walk together. We see Adam Clayton Powell Jr. all shattered when he finds out about Kennedy’s assassination.
The second season (if/when it comes) will witness all characters adjusting in new circumstances. Bumpy will remain the target of the five family while Malcolm will be in trouble too. Godfather Of Harlem Season 2 will also see the initial riots of 64-65.
