The new TV One movie Coins Forever will bring romance, challenges and new beginnings.

In a sneak peek video, Essence Atkins says her character Madison will experience a “full evolution” in this final chapter of the Coins franchise.

“If I had to describe this move in three words, I would say happily ever beginning,” Atkins says. “This movie is one of the reasons I love doing television. To look at where my character Madison was in the first movie to now, seeing her full evolution is just amazing.”

The film also stars Stephen Bishop as Alec who takes his relationship with Madison to the next level. Rounding out the main cast are TC Carson as Hank; Golden Brooks as Veronica; Demetria McKinney as Althea; and Kendrick Cross as Demarco.

Coins Forever comes after Coins For Christmas and Coins For Love. In the first film, viewers watched as single mom Madison found herself scraping pennies together two weeks before Christmas after the IRS froze her bank account and her boss fired her. While searching for sideline gigs, she was hired by pro-athlete Alec Darby and they became good friends. The sequel, Coins For Love, showed Madison and Alec as they started to pursue their dream jobs. The two eventually reconnected and began to date, but both of their exes remerged and their relationship stumbled.

In this final installment of the trilogy, Madison and Alec are flourishing in their jobs and their romance is growing, but new challenges open old wounds and threaten to derail their relationship.

The film is executive produced by Urban One Founder and Chairwoman Cathy Hughes, written by Susan Banks and directed by Tamara Bass. The film is produced for TV One by Swirl Films, with Eric F. Tomosunas serving as Executive Producer. James Seppelfrick, Ron Robinson and Keith Neal serve as producers.

Coins Forever premieres Sunday, Nov. 14 at 7:00 P.M. ET/PT.
