'The Best Man: Final Chapters': Morris Chestnut Shares Shot From First Day On Set Of Limited Series Spinoff At Peacock

Fans of The Best Man film series can finally get a behind-the-scenes look at the limited series spinoff, The Best Man: Final Chapters.

The shot comes courtesy of actor Morris Chestnut, who portrays the role of Lance in the popular franchise.

The photo, as captured on Morris Chestnut’s Instagram, depicts the actor in a room of sorts with director Malcolm D. Lee. 

As we previously reported on S&A, word of a spinoff to The Best Man was announced in February of 2021.

Aside from Morris Chestnut, the returning cast also includes Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau.

The series will reunite fans with Harper, Robyn, Jordan, Lance, Quentin, Shelby, Candace, and Murch as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance. The spinoff series will be written and executive produced by Malcolm D. Lee and Dayna Lynne North.

“We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of ‘The Best Man’ for Peacock,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, in a previous statement. “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.”

'The Best Man Final Chapters' is based on the cult classic film The Best Man and its sequel, 'The Best Man Holiday.' Both films, written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, were critical and commercial successes. 

In a prior statement, 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.”
