Just days after BMF premiered on Starz, the network has handed out a second season order. BMF is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980’s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in this country. BMF airs Sundays on Starz. 

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will be the performers for the upcoming 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show. The event will take place February 13 on NBC, Telemundo and Peacock. The show will be a collaboration between the NFL, Pepsi and JAY-Z’s Roc Nation. 

Freeform has orders new series Everything’s Trash from Phoebe Robinson, who will star in the series inspired by her bestselling book “Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay.” The series follows Phoebe, a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. Forced to grow up when her older brother Jayden emerges as a leading political candidate, she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood. 

This Old House and Ask This Old House kick off their new seasons September 30. Season 43 of This Old House and Season 20 of Ask This Old House will consist of 39 episodes, 13 more than usual. New episodes will premiere on PBS as well as an all-new dedicated This Old House premium subscription channel on The Roku Channel on Thursdays.

Peacock’s upcoming Halloween special Snoop and Martha’s Very Tasty Halloween will now be premiering October 21. Teams of three bakers, called “Scare Squads,” are tasked with baking and building a full-sensory 12×12 Halloween world that people can literally explore. The catch? Their worlds must be inspired by the concept of fear. Imagine larger-than-life-sized chocolate spiders or cotton candy cobwebs! Alvin Zhou will judge alongside Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart. 

Bounce has renewed Johnson for season two ahead of its first season finale October 3. Johnson is a dramedy that focuses on life-long best friends, all of whom share the same last name, centering around their intriguing and sometimes complicated journey of love, friendship, heartbreak and personal growth. Told from the Black male perspective, but inclusive of all men, the series looks to shine a new light on hot-button stereotypes and misconceptions.
