The BET+ Original Series “Carl Weber’s The Family Business” Season 3: The theme for the third season is tentatively titled, "Heat v. Fire," picking up where Season 2 drama left off, with LC Duncan setting in motion a plan to expand business operations with the family’s most highly sought-after product ‘HEAT’. As plans gained momentum and solidified their seat at the helm of the table, rival factions looked for opportunities to stunt their success and force a hostile takeover. That's where the action-packed season 3 of The Family Business begins, as the Duncan family runs up against their most formidable opponent yet in Billionaire Alexander Cora who has strategically organized the Duncan’s enemies against them. As the thrill of being at the top wanes from the pressures of the industry, the Duncan’s only choice is family over everything! #TheFamilyBusinessBET
