BMF star Russell Hornsby has addressed whether he would return to the show for a second season.
Created by 50 Cent and Randy Huggins, BMF is inspired by the story of brothers Demetrius 'Big Meech' Flenory and Terry 'Southwest T' Flenory, who formed the most prominent drug trafficking organisation in the US, known as Black Mafia Family.
Hornsby plays Terry and Demetrius' father Charles Flenory on the series. At the end of the first episode, the character is shot by an unknown assailant as he stands by his car.
However, Hornsby would be interested in returning for a second instalment of BMF, he told Digital Spy.
"I would be if they would have me. I would consider it an honour and a privilege, you know, to come back for a second season," the actor said.
"I think that I'm really curious as to what audiences are going to take away from this first season. I think that what we've done, and what 50 has done, and I think what the, the artists that are assembled – the creators and everybody – I think they've created a story that is one for the ages in terms of it's something for everybody.
"It's for Black, for white, for people of colour, for everybody. Because again they say you get to the universal through the specific. And this is a very specific story with universal themes."
The actor also weighed in on his emotional scene at the end of the pilot, explaining why it felt an honest moment of television.
"That moment at the end, that's the aspect of the heart that it displays, and then what comes in the heart that you can expect after that, and the emotion that these characters, that these people had to carry and had to live with," Hornsby said.
"That's something that you don't oftentimes get in a lot of television and I think especially in Black television to be honest with you, is the immense amount of heart and passion."
BMF airs on Starz in the US and streams on Starzplay, available through Amazon Prime Video, in the UK.
