As theGrio previously reported, the new series continues the story told in Malcolm D. Lee’s hit 1999 film “The Best Man” and its 2013 sequel “The Best Man Holiday.” Reuniting original cast-members Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau to reprise their roles, this series sees the beloved characters in an exciting chapter in their lives as their relationships continue to evolve.

“It’s gonna be just like old times, only better, right?” Perrineau as Julian states at the start of the trailer, as the gang prepares for Quentin (Howard) to make his way down the aisle. The teaser also reveals a major plot point tied all the way back to the original film. Harper, played by Diggs, finds out his book “Unfinished Business” is getting the Hollywood treatment: a film adaptation.

Fans may remember the book as a main aspect (and point of contention within the friend group) in the original film. “That book caused a lot of drama,” Lathan’s Robyn tells him in the clip.

“Life doesn’t always go the way we expect, but we’re lucky, we end up where we’re supposed to,” Harper states toward the end of the clip. Check out the trailer below:

As theGrio previously reported, the series was first announced back in 2021.

In a statement along with the announcement, Lee shared, “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.” He added, “We can’t wait! I told you it wouldn’t be 14 more years.”

“The Best Man: The Final Chapters” begins streaming Dec. 22, on Peacock.
