Now here’s a reboot we’re super excited for!
‘The Best Man’ is being adapted for television as ‘The Best Man: Final Chapters.’
The new 10-episode limited series, written and executive produced by Malcolm D. Lee and Dayna Lynne North, is headed to Peacock.
The best part (pun intended) is that the original cast from the films will be reprising their roles — Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau are all returning.
“We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of ‘The Best Man’ for Peacock,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “With a powerhouse duo like Malcolm and Dayna at the helm, fans will fall in love with our favorite group of friends all over again.”
Universal Television President Erin Underhill said,
“When Malcolm joined the UTV family, our first conversation was about our collective desire to bring his groundbreaking Universal feature franchise to television. Three years and one pandemic later, we’re on the brink of doing just that. I’m thrilled for us all to see this goal come to fruition.”
‘The Best Man: Final Chapters’ will catch up with Harper, Robyn, Jordan, Lance, Quentin, Shelby, Candace, and Murch as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance.
Let us go ahead and sign-up for Peacock now so we don’t miss this!
