What’s next for Lennie James?
James’ series Save Me, which he wrote, created, and stars in, currently has two series, the original and Save Me Too. In early 2023 it was announced that a third installment of the series was in production.
He will star in the fourth season of the Disney+ series Genius titled Genius: MLK/X. In this series, he will portray Daddy King, aka Dr. Michael King, who “will explore the formative years, pioneering accomplishments, dueling philosophies and key personal relationships of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.”
James will also star in an apocalyptic science fiction musical comedy directed and co-written by Joshua Oppenheimer, The End.
