Second Season Cast Updates

Leslie Jones (“Our Flag Means Death,” Coming 2 America) will join the cast of hit series “BMF” in a recurring role for season two. Jones joins the growing list of new strong female characters that will be featured in the second season accompanying La La Anthony (“The Chi”, The Perfect Find), who was recently upped to a series regular, and “BMF” newcomers Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King, X2: X-Men) and Christine Horn (“Snowfall,” “black-ish”). The first season of “BMF” debuted as the #1 premiere on the STARZ app last year and ranked as one of the most highly engaged series premieres ever.
