The “Best Man” limited series is shaping up as the OGs return to carry out their classic roles alongside a group of top-tier talent. Find out who will be guest-starring on Peacock's “Best Man: The Final Chapters” inside…

 

If you haven’t heard, a limited series for the “Best Man” is coming down the pipeline and production is already underway!

 

 

Following the huge success of the original Best Man film, which hit theaters in 1999, and it’s sequel, The Best Man Holiday, which hit the big screen in 2013, a limited series is set to debut later this year on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock

All your original ‘Best Man’ faves are set to reprise their roles, including 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). The only actress missing is Monica Calhoun, whose character died in the sequel.

Creator, writer and executive producer Malcolm D. Lee will return to make the series just as good as the films where he will work alongside “Insecure” writer Dayna Lynne North.

There will be several new faces joining as the recurring cast, including Nicole Ari Parker, Ron Canada, Brandon Victor Dixon, Michael Genet, Yvonna Pearson, Aaron Serotsky, Terrence Terrell, Tobias Truvillion and Eric Scott Ways. 

Based upon the legendary Universal film franchise written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the series will catch up with the beloved cast as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance.  

Oh wow. Should get interesting.

Below are descriptions of the roles the “Best Man” newbies will play:

 

 

NICOLE ARI PARKER (And Just Like That, Empire) will play Xiomara Amani, a captivating, high profile, multi-hyphenate beauty who is sure to disrupt the dynamic of the Best Man crew. 



RON CANADA (The Good Fight, Ted 2) will play Wellington, Quentin’s (Terrence Howard) father. He is the patriarch of the family and is uncertain about relinquishing control of the family business to his son.  



BRANDON VICTOR DIXON (Power, Jesus Christ Superstar Live!) will play Demetrius, west coast chic and someone from Jordan’s (Nia Long) past who has recently come back into her life.



MICHAEL GENET (Billions, Dr. Death) will play Dr. Temple, a professor at Fordham University. He’s debonair, authoritative and friendlier than expected.   



YVONNA PEARSON (Dynasty, Flatbush Misdemeanors, Pause With Sam Jay) will play Jasmine, who works at the island resort and takes care of the group during their stay.   



AARON SEROTSKY (Dopesick, The Survivor) will play Stan, a literary agent. 



TERRENCE TERRELL (Giants, B Positive) will play Will, who is handsome, charming and likes to flirt. He works in tech and is taking a much-needed island vacation. 



TOBIAS TRUVILLION (Brooklyn’s Finest, New Amsterdam) will play Jaha, a conscious urban farmer who sells produce at a farmer’s market and works with many chefs. 



ERIC SCOTT WAYS (City on a Hill, A Holiday in Harlem) will play LJ, Lance’s (Morris Chestnut) son who is made in Lance’s image. LJ is a football prodigy, but football isn’t necessarily LJ’s passion.  

Malcolm D. Lee - who will direct four episodes - has been posting selfies from the set since filming began March 14th:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s unclear when the limited series is expected to premiere, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it dropped later this year or early 2023. Get ready!
