When does the new family business come on?
The fourth season of the BET original series The Family Business is currently streaming on Netflix. The crime drama is based on Carl Weber’s bestselling book series of the same name and stars Ernie Hudson as L.C. Duncan, a patriarch who runs a luxury exotic car dealership in New York by day while leading a criminal underworld empire at night. The Family Business also stars Darrin DeWitt Henson, Valarie Pettiford, Emilio Rivera, Armand Assante, and Javicia Leslie.
Despite the fact that Season 4 just recently wrapped, the show’s creator, Carl Weber, has been hinting at a fifth season for some time now. In a Facebook post, he shared that right before the Hollywood actors’ strike began, The Family Business was about 40% finished filming. This means that if the writers and actors strike ends soon, production on the fifth season could begin as early as next month, with a premiere date set for sometime in Spring 2024.
If you haven’t seen the first four seasons yet, now is the perfect time to start watching. You can stream the entire first season for free on Netflix, or you can pick up the entire series on a subscription streaming service like Philo (free trial), FuboTV, or DirecTV Stream. The Family Business has been a popular choice amongst viewers, so it’s no wonder that the network decided to renew for a fifth season.
