Russell Hornsby, who plays Charles Flenory, dropped some hints about the potential for BMF to continue beyond its first season while speaking with Digital Spy recently.

"I would [want to return] 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 told us.

"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 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."

BMF airs on Starz in the US and streams on Starzplay, available through Amazon Prime Video, in the UK.
