“The Best Man” cast members are coming together again for a 10-episode series on Peacock. “The Best Man: Final Chapters” will take viewers into a world of love, friendship, and fights.
“Here we go! The band is back together,” Malcolm D. Lee, executive producer, and writer said. “I am very excited to bring these iconic characters back to fans who have supported us through this franchise. 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!”
The series will show how the lives of Harper (Taye Diggs), Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Lance (Morris Chestnut), Jordan (Nia Long), Shelby (Melissa De Sousa), Quentin (Terrence Howard), Murch (Harold Perrineau), and Candace (Regina Hall) have evolved.
“We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of “The Best Man” for Peacock,” Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said. “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.”
Dayna Lynne North and Sean Daniels are also executive producers and writers for the television series.
“The Best Man” films were a cultural touchstone during my college days — and they’ve remained influential pop culture references to this day,” North said. “I’ve grown up laughing with these characters, copying their dance moves, and grieving at their losses. I am overjoyed to be partnering with Malcolm D. Lee and this amazing cast to adapt this iconic franchise at Peacock.”
There is no word on when the series will debut. Hopefully, soon.
