The next chapter of The Best Man story is set to unfold this holiday season.
Peacock announced Wednesday The Best Man: The Final Chapters will premiere on Dec. 22. The streaming service also released the first official photos from the limited series.
Based on the iconic film franchise, the series follows the original cast as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface.
Returning cast members include Morris Chestnut (Lance Sullivan), Melissa De Sousa (Shelby Taylor), Taye Diggs (Harper Stewart), Regina Hall (Candace Murchison), Terrence Howard (Quentin Spivey), Sanaa Lathan (Robyn Stewart), Nia Long (Jordan Armstrong) and Harold Perrineau (Julian Murchison).
They’ll be joined by recurring guest stars Nicole Ari Parker, Ron Canada, Brandon Victor Dixon, Michael Genet, Yvonne Pearson, Aaron Serotsky, Terrence Terrell, Tobias Truvillion and Eric Scott Way.
Malcolm D. Lee, who wrote and directed the movies, is co-creator of the series with Dayna Lynne North.
When the new project was announced in February 2021, Lee said he was thrilled to continue The Best Man story.
“Here we go! The band is back together! I am very excited to bring these iconic characters back to the fans who have supported us through this franchise,” he said. “We are thrilled to deliver everything one would expect from this group of friends in The Best Man universe and take them through their final chapters. We can’t wait! I told you it wouldn’t be 14 more years.”
Lee shared several photos from the set in May. He directs four episodes of the new series. Other directors include Charles Stone III, Robert Townsend and Stacey Muhammad.
The dramedy is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
The Best Man: Final Chapters begins streaming on Thursday, Dec. 22 on Peacock.
