DESCRIPTION:
(from BET's press release, June 2020) BET+ announces the second season of fan favorite series Carl Weber's "The Family Business" will launch Thursday, July 2. Half of the twelve-episode season will be available at launch, giving viewers six hours of episodic gems. Season 2 continues to follow the Duncan family as they look to further solidify their position as a leading faction in the New York criminal underworld. "We are excited to continue the Duncan's story in this season of Carl Weber's 'The Family Business' on its new home on BET+," said Devin Griffin, General Manager, BET+. "We look forward to all this season has in store and we are thrilled to bring Carl's beloved voice to streaming, introducing even more fans to quality entertainment celebrating unique Black stories." This season will pick up where the debut season concluded, as the Duncans work to calm tensions with rivals, The Zunigas. Family patriarch, L.C. Duncan and eldest son Orlando execute a plan to expand business operations with their proprietary drug 'heat,' but as they gain momentum in the venture, they face opposition from some old and new foes. For some in the Duncan clan, individual drama mounts that could threaten their lives and ruin the family business. Will they be able to stay intact and navigate these dangerous scenarios, or will things fall apart?
