According to reports, a limited series run of ‘The Best Man‘ is in the works.
The original cast from the movies are set to return, including Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau. Monica Calhoun, whose character died in the sequel, The Best Man Holiday, will not return.
“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.”
Malcolm D. Lee wrote and directed the films and will return for the limited series which will air on Peacock. He says,
“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. 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.”
Earlier this year, Morris Chestnut revealed that a third installment of The Best Man franchise may be in the works.
