Forest Whitaker returns as “Bumpy” Johnson, determined to wrest Harlem back from the Italian American mob in Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein’s Godfather of Harlem season 3. It’s an acclaimed cocktail of criminal shenanigans and civil rights drama, and one of the most watched shows on EPIX (rebranding soon as MGM Plus). The show’s tensions are about to reach fever pitch, and our guide will break down where to watch Godfather of Harlem season 3 online from anywhere in the world.

*Warning – season 2 spoilers ahead*

Following his long incarceration, Bumpy’s been trying to re-establish himself as the number one crime don in Harlem. But his last attempt crashed and burned after a stray Molotov cocktail set his warehouse of heroin ablaze during the Harlem riots. So, we’ll see him forced to bend the knee to the Italians once again, in particular Joe Columbo (Michael Raymond-James) of the Columbo crime family.

Yet new alliances could just alter the balance of power. Bumpy will join forces with Cuban crime lord Jose Miguel Battle (Yul Vázquez, Severance) while Malcom X (Jason Alan Carvell) does makes new bonds to hasten social change. And given Stella's (Lucy Fry) testimony against her father, Vincent “The Chin” Gigante (Vincent D'Onofrio), we might even see the collapse of the entire Italian American mafia. But more likely is that she'll end up getting whacked.

We explain how to stream all new episodes of this thrilling crime drama live and on-demand below through MGM Plus, with the following guide detailing where to watch Godfather of Harlem season 3 from anywhere now.

Can I watch Godfather of Harlem season 3 online in Canada?

Unfortunately, there’s been no news stating season 3 will be available to Canadian viewers anytime soon. Given that the second season landed on Disney Plus Canada a whole year after its US broadcast, we’d expect a similarly long wait before the latest episodes are ready to stream.

Can I watch Godfather of Harlem season 3 online in the UK?

There’s been no announcement if the UK streaming home of Godfather of Harlem - formerly Starzplay and now known as Lionsgate Plus (opens in new tab) - will be getting new season 3 episodes anytime soon. There was a lag of a few months between last season's debut in the States and subsequent release in the UK, so we expect this to hold true for the show’s third season.

The wait might just be a good opportunity to revisit Bumpy's early conflicts with the Italian crime families of 1960s New York. Both seasons are available to be streamed with membership to both Amazon Prime and the Amazon Channel Lionsgate Plus. New subscribers can get 30-days free membership to Amazon Prime (opens in new tab), in addition to a 7-day free trial of Lionsgate Plus (opens in new tab).
