However the feared-crime boss’ family and community are put in danger by the rival Italians, ruthless Latin assassins and the CIA.

In a sneak peek for the new season, Bumpy says: ‘That heroin was the one chance I had to control these blocks.’

‘Now I’m crawling back to the Italians with my chequebook,’ he adds as large crates of illicit drugs are being burnt.
