The Family Business is a drama that follows the Duncans, an upstanding family who owns and operates an exotic car dealership by day and lead a dangerous underworld lifestyle by night. It is based on Carl Weber’s bestselling crime drama book series. The show stars Ernie Hudson as L.C. Duncan, the patriarch of the powerful and influential family. He is joined by Valerie Pettiford, who portrays Charlotte Duncan, the matriarch of the family. Other cast members include Darrin DeWitt Henson (Orlando Duncan), Armand Assante (Sal Dash), Javicia Leslie, Clifton Powell (Uncle Lou), Tami Roman (London Duncan), Sean Ringgold (Junior Duncan), Christian Keyes, Miguel A. Nunez, Arrington Foster, KJ Smith, Yadi Valerio, and Dylan Weber.
The show premiered on November 1, 2022, on BET+ and wrapped up its fourth season on October 27, 2022. Fans of the show have been waiting with bated breath for the fifth season to be released. The Family Business creator Carl Weber has just revealed a small update on the status of the upcoming season.
According to Weber, filming on the upcoming season is already 40% done. However, he added that the production will only be able to continue once the Hollywood actors’ strike ends. This could mean that the show might not debut until Spring 2024 at the earliest. However, the latest development is certainly good news for Carl Weber’s Family Business fans. They can expect the new season to be filled with even more thrills and spills.
