This time the films lead character Akeem will return to America after he learns that one of the royal oats he sowed led to the unlikely heir to the throne of Wakanda’s neighbor Zamuda.

All kidding aside,  Akeem learns about a long-lost son and must return to America and of course hijinks will take place.

Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the script and Craig Brewer, who directed the Murphy film, will direct the film

Murphy and Barris will executive produce the flick.

One thought on “Release Date Is Set For ‘Coming To America’ Sequel

  1. When did Akem have time to sore his wild oats because as soon as he set foot in America he was smitten with Lisa McDowell? Now Semi, I would believe there was an illegitimate child! LOL Regardless, I will definitely be watching. Gosh how do I remember the names of these characters! :>)
