Is Coming 2 America on Netflix? Here’s how to watch the 2021 sequel starring Eddie Murphy. Where is the movie streaming?
Are you ready for a wave of 80s nostalgia?
Many audiences may never have expected to be invited back to the kingdom of Zamunda. However, movie dreams do come true… even in 2021!
Fans of Eddie Murphy often regard the decade of Beverly Hills Cop and Trading Places as the actor’s heyday, with Coming to America arguably proving to be the crown jewel. It’s perhaps rather fitting that he plays royalty in the 1988 John Landis comedy classic.
Now, the 59-year-old has returned to reprise the role of Akeem, along with other characters that fans of the predecessor will surely swoon over.
Directed by Craig Brewer, Coming 2 America sees Akeem venture back to Queens after he discovers he has a son, leading to a string of complications.
It’s a must-see for Eddie enthusiasts, but is Coming 2 America on Netflix?

Craig Brewer’s Coming 2 America experience
Chatting with Entertainment Weekly, the director – who has long been a passionate fan of the predecessor – described how wonderful it was to bring this assortment of iconic characters back to the screen:
“It was probably one of the greatest experiences of my life, being able to watch them come back into these characters. [Co-writer] Kenya Barris is one of the most powerful men in entertainment, and we’re sitting there on set and when Eddie and Arsenio walked into the barbershop as the old barbershop characters, we giggled like school children. We just dropped all sense of maturity and decorum.”
Continuing to reflect on his time at My-T-Sharp, he added: “It was like, ‘Can you believe that we are doing this? Can you believe we’re at the barbershop? There’s Clarence [Murphy] for God’s sake!’ And it was just infectious.”
Coming 2 America is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
