Morris Chestnut is choosing his words extremely carefully, however it’s clear his Best Man character will be moving on romantically in the brand-new TV series based on the hit films. The Best Man star informs TMZ… it’s been a long period of time since fans saw his character, Lance Sullivan, go through an emotional roller rollercoaster following his wife Mia’s (Monica Calhoun) death from cancer. Morris says the brand-new series – The Best Man: The Final Chapters – will provide Lance some closure, and potentially a brand-new lady in his life.
Chestnut understands just how much fans liked Lance and Mia as a couple… so he worries, “There will never be anybody that could change Mia.” The franchises loyal fans never ever got to see Morris correctly mourn Mia’s death in the follow up Best Man Holiday – but that’s about to alter. The Peacock streaming service has actually ordered 10 episodes for a minimal series featuring the whole original cast – Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, and Harold Perrineau.
The developers are eyeing a September premiere. Malcolm D. Lee, who wrote and directed the 1999 and 2013 movies, will produce and compose with Dayna Lynne North… best understood for writing/producing HBOs hit Insecure. One more aspect of the new series… Morris says it will likely include a few of the real-life occasions we’re all going through right now.
That’s fine. Just do not forget Mia, Lance!
