Peacock has released a teaser trailer for The Best Man: The Final Chapters.
The video shows the group navigating their relationships and careers.
“Being in successful relationships takes work,” Harper (played by Taye Diggs) says. “None of us ever stopped growing or evolving.”
The series will see Hollywood come calling as Harper lands a deal to adapt his book “Unfinished Business” into a film.

Based on the iconic The Best Man film franchise, the eight-part limited series follows the original cast as their lives move forward.
In addition to Taye Diggs, returning cast members include Morris Chestnut (Lance Sullivan), Melissa De Sousa (Shelby Taylor), 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 I wrote The Best Man, it was out of a desire to see myself on screen. Growing up I rarely saw Black people — Black men in particular – the way my friends and I saw ourselves: educated, upwardly mobile African-Americans who were just “normal” (Barack and Michelle before Barack and Michelle),” Lee said in a statement.
“Fans of the franchise have consistently asked me (and the stellar cast) when are we going to tell them what’s happened with this group of friends? And what better way to do that than to give them what they want (and more) in a limited series,” he added. “Given the moment that we are in, this is the perfect time to revisit Harper, Lance, Murch, Quentin, Jordan, Robyn, Candace and Shelby and go on the wild, emotional, hilarious ride with them, as they deal with their own journeys through parenting, activism, old love, new love and the complexities of being Black in 21st Century America.”
The dramedy is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Directors include Malcolm D. Lee (four episodes), Charles Stone III, Robert Townsend and Stacey Muhammad. Sean Daniel of Hivemind is an executive producer.
The Best Man: The Final Chapters begins streaming, with all eight episodes dropping, on Thursday, Dec. 22 on Peacock.
