The movies’ writer and director Malcolm D. Lee and Dayna Lynne North will write and executive produce the limited series. In addition, the upcoming project will be produced by Universal Television.

“Here we go! The band is back together!” Lee said in a press release. “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. We can’t wait! I told you it wouldn’t be 14 more years.”

North, who is the former executive producer for HBO’s Insecure, is the new addition to The Best Man team. She has been a fan of the franchise for a long time. 

The Best Man films were a cultural touchstone during my college days—and they’ve remained influential pop culture references to this day,” she said. “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.”

A release date for The Best Man: The Final Chapters has yet to be announced.
