The "BMF" world is expanding in season three with some exciting new additions to the cast. On Jan. 18, not even two weeks after its season two premiere, Starz renewed the hit true-crime drama — inspired by the real-life story of Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory (portrayed by Demetrius "Lil Meech" Flenory Jr.) and Terry "Southwest T" Flenory (played by Da'Vinchi), who formed the legendary crime syndicate Black Mafia Family in the '80s — for yet another season.

"'BMF' captures the essence of Detroit through elevated, gritty storytelling and our fans have passionately responded to this show more than ever before," said Starz President of Original Programming Kathryn Busby. "Following such a strong debut with season two, we're thrilled to continue to expand on the incredible story of the Flenory brothers as they change the game by writing their own rules. We can't wait to see what our extraordinary producers and cast deliver next."

Though details were scarce at the time of season three's announcement, the network shared new information on Feb. 21 — specifically which new faces will appear in the hit series next. According to a press release shared with POPSUGAR, 2 Chainz and Ne-Yo will both have recurring roles in season three, joining the likes of stars like Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Yung Miami of City Girls, and other artists who have scored cameos in "BMF."

Per the release, 2 Chainz will play a character named Stacks, "an Atlanta-born and bred distributor whose wisdom and stature command respect wherever he goes," who "lives by the street code" and "challenges Meech's leadership style." Meanwhile, Ne-Yo will star as Rodney "Greeny" Green, a "local Atlanta player who's all about making the bag" and "filled with swagger and an entrepreneurial spirit."

There's still no official word yet about "BMF"'s season three plot or when production will begin, but viewers can expect it to pick up after the events of season two's finale, which airs on March 23. The second season of "BMF," which premiered on Jan. 6, began with Meech and Terry at odds with each other as they continued to shape their drug business, form new bonds, and gain new enemies.

In a recent interview with POPSUGAR, Da'Vinchi teased that "fans are going to be in for a treat" with season two. "You're going to see Terry Flenory just boss up," he said of his character. "He's just like, 'Yo, I'm not this little kid no more. I got this grown-ass lady (La La Anthony's Markisha Taylor), and I'm the man now. And she's helping me become a man.' He got a little different pep in his step, and it's going to be interesting to watch."

Meanwhile, Chester Rogers, who plays new character Sterling "Sterl" Black, told POPSUGAR in January that "BMF" fans could expect "a lot of twists and turns, a lot of drama, a lot of action" from the remainder of season two. "We getting way more in-depth into these characters as y'all see them evolve. So, yeah, just buckle your seatbelts and get ready for the ride."

New episodes of "BMF" air every Friday night on Starz.
