Nearly 25 years after the release of the film The Best Man, the story’s conclusion will be made available to audiences in the form of a limited series.
Those who saw the first film remember Harper (Taye Diggs), whose first novel was leaked right before he was to fly to New York City to attend the wedding of his NFL star best friend Lance (Morris Chestnut).
Harper wasn’t prepared for the drama that visiting with college classmates and book disclosures would bring.
In The Best Man Holiday, set nearly 15 years later, Harper and her now-strained relationship with Lance and his pregnant wife Robyn (Sanaa Lathan) reunite at Lance’s home with the rest of their pals for the holidays despite their animosity toward one another.
Unfortunately, things don’t go as neatly as planned. Now, about a decade after that last film, the story will come to a close in The Best Man: The Final Chapters, a Peacock limited series.
Set after the events of both 1999 original and the 2013 sequel, The Best Man Holiday, “The Best Man: The Final Chapters” provides fans with the long-awaited conclusion to the trilogy.
Throughout the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance, the series will follow Harper, Robyn, Jordan, Lance, Quentin, Shelby, Candace, and Murch as their relationships develop and old grudges are revisited.
A lot of people in the audience of The Best Man Holiday remember that after the death of his wife, Lance decided to retire from the NFL.
The Chairman of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming via Shadow and Act, Susan Rovner, is thrilled to bring back their long-time favorite actors for a limited series run of The Best Man for Peacock.
Fans will fall in love with our favorite bunch of pals all over again with Malcolm and Dayna at the lead.

‘The Best Man: The Final Chapters’ Is Currently Filming
Filming on the Peacock series has begun, and actor Malcolm D. Lee has been documenting the set on Instagram.
No date has been set for the show’s premiere yet. It is possible to make an educated guess that it will premiere around the holidays in 2022 or early 2023.
All the original actors, including Morris Chestnut (Lance), Melissa De Sousa (Shelby), Taye Diggs (Harper), Regina Hall (Candance), Terrence Howard (Quentin), Sanaa Lathan (Robyn), Nia Long (Jordan), and Harold Perrineau (Jordan), are back for another season (Murch).
Co-writer Dayna Lynn North remarked that “The Best Man flicks were a cultural touchstone during my undergraduate days — and they’ve remained powerful pop culture references to this day.”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve shared my life’s ups and downs with these fictional people. With Malcolm D. Lee and this incredible ensemble, I am thrilled to adapt this legendary series for Peacock.

The Series Has Been in The Works for Years
Fans were eager to watch the third picture after the success of The Best Man Holiday. However, after 10 episodes, the drama in Peacock will come to a close.
Since it will be broadcast as a television series rather than a feature film, the script has probably been revised over the years.
Good thing there’s a demand for it. That so many individuals have the motivation to do it, though, is fantastic.
The future is uncertain, Diggs said to Entertainment Tonight in March of 2021. Not even the script has been read by us yet. I can’t even begin to guess.
This was something we requested, along with the writing,” he explained. I believe the script was written quite some time ago, however, I am not sure how much has changed since then.
