Welcome back to Zamunda — and Queens.
Thirty-two years after Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall became movie royalty in Coming to America, Prince Akeem and his trusty friend Semmi are reuniting in the first look at Coming 2 America, which arrives March 5, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
Akeem and Semmi make a return to their friendly neighborhood barbershop (is Soul Glo still in business?!). Yes, get ready to see Murphy and Hall reviving a few more memorable Coming to America characters.
But what brings them back to Queens? As Akeem prepares to become king, he learns that he fathered a son (Jermaine Fowler) with a local woman (Leslie Jones). Joining Fowler and Jones as newcomers to the series are KiKi Layne, Tracy Morgan, Rick Ross, and Wesley Snipes, while returning alums include Shari Headley, Paul Bates, John Amos, and James Earl Jones.
