Gangs back together again for one more wedding in The Best Man: The Final Chapter, which premieres on Peacock, Dec 22nd. All eight episodes of the limited series will drop on that date.
Original casts Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau reunite to celebrate Quentin’s (Howard) destination wedding.
Nicole Ari Parker, Ron Canada, Brandon Victor Dixon, Michael Genet, Yvonna Pearson, Terrence Terrell, Tobias Truvillion, Aaron Serotsky, and Eric Scott Ways will recur on the limited series.
Written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the limited drama series will catch up with the fan-favorite characters as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance. And based on the new cast descriptions, we know it is set (at least part of the time) on an island.
Parker will play Xiomara Amani, a captivating, high-profile, multi-hyphenate beauty who is sure to disrupt the dynamic of the Best Man crew. Canada will play Wellington, Quentin’s (Howard) father. He is the patriarch of the family and is uncertain about relinquishing control of the family business to his son.
Dixon will play Demetrius, west coast chic, and someone from Jordan’s (Long) past who has recently come back into her life. Genet will play Dr. Temple, a professor at Fordham University. He’s debonair, authoritative, and friendlier than expected.
Pearson will play Jasmine, who works at the island resort and takes care of the group during their stay. Serotsky will play Stan, a literary agent. Terrell will play Will, who is handsome, charming, and likes to flirt. He works in tech and is taking a much-needed island vacation.
Truvillion will play Jaha, a conscious urban farmer who sells produce at a farmer’s market and works with many chefs. Ways will play LJ, Lance’s (Chestnut) son who is made in Lance’s image. LJ is a football prodigy, but football isn’t necessarily LJ’s passion.
