A few cast members shared their excitement about the news on social media, including Chestnut, who played Lance Sullivan in both films. He wrote, "It’s OFFICIAL! GET YO POPCORN READY!! Looking forward to sharing the screen with all this talent again."
De Souza, who played the reality star Shelby, also confirmed the news on Instagram and said, "The Best Man Fam is back! Wow what a day! Today I received a double portion. #Blessed."
Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a statement, “We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of The Best Man for Peacock. 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.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the franchise, the series follows a tight-knit group of friends as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives. And in this upcoming 10-episode series, fans will get to reunite with Harper, Robyn, Jordan, Lance, Quentin, Shelby, Candace and Murch as their relationships continue to evolve.
The Best Man: The Final Chapters will be executive produced by Malcolm D. Lee, who directed both movies, Sean Daniel, who produced the sequel, and Dayna Lynne North of Loud Sis Productions. While discussing the impact of the franchise, North said, "The Best Man films were a cultural touchstone during my college days—and they've remained influential pop culture references to this day. 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."
