'The Family Business' Season 2: Does the Duncan family fall apart in the end? Darrin Dewitt Henson answers
Under pressure from enemies and family struggles, we think that the Duncans might have to hold on tight to strings that tie their family together
Actor Darrin DeWitt Henson described the Duncans as people who look out for one another. "The Duncans protect the family." The Duncans have been part of the BET+ family a while and have acquired a very loyal audience. The trailer for this season promised us a feisty unraveling of underworld tensions, and we wondered if the Duncan family is about to fall apart?
Part of the patriarchy is Orlando Duncan played by Henson — he is the appointed CEO of Duncan Motors — the "legit" business in the family. A complete workaholic, he's dedicated, but jealousy and controversy merging is a horrible thing. In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Henson answers the one question on everyone's mind, does the Duncan Family fall apart in Season 2?
Careful to keep spoilers at bay, Henson said that the Duncan family is "coming up against a lot" in Season 2. "You see the level of difficulty expand," he said naming the tensions rising as "family problems, financial problems, whether it be emotional problems." While that's not too much to go on, we do know that the Duncans are going to test this season, maybe even more than they had been before. "I don't want to give away where it's going. And to be honest, where ultimately we'll go, nobody knows because it's all in the Carl Weber's head," added Henson.
The show has done well since it's Season 1 premiere, as it rings sparks of family riches and disheartened loyalty — kind of like the Carringtons in 'Dynasty'. Having been part of a streaming network, it has had the ability to reach large audiences, not to mention the narrative is way too catchy to ignore. The Duncans run an exotic car dealership business but nightfall calls for darker family happenings in the criminal underworld.
Under the pressure of enemies and family struggles, we think that the Duncan family might have to hold on tight to the strings that tie their family together. Season 2 of 'The Family Business' premiered on July 2 with the first half of the season at six episodes. The rest of the episodes for Season 2 of 'The Family Business' will be available to stream every Friday on BET+.
