Good morning, my neighbors! We have some good news. The life and times of King Akeem will continue. Coming 2 America, the wait for the sequel to Eddie Murphy’s classic comedy Coming To America is over—premiering on Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021.
King Akeem (played by Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (played Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new journey when they return from the opulence of Zamunda back to Queens, New York. This time, their journey takes a twist when King Akeem discovers he has a son that he never knew about.
