Taye Diggs rallied fans over the weekend when he posted a throwback movie poster of the 2013 film The Best Man Holiday, the follow up to the hit 90s film, The Best Man.
“We’re baaaaaaaaack…,” he said in an Instagram post on Sunday, confirming a reunion of the sequel’s eight original cast members.
Diggs’ post follows the announcement via Deadline earlier this year that he, along with cast mates Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau, will reprise their roles in a 10-episode drama series based on the film, titled The Best Man: The Final Chapters.
According to Deadline, Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee is set to direct the series, which will catch up with each of the stars’ characters, providing an update on their relationship statuses and revisiting some of the issues of the previous films.
“Here we go! The band is back together! I am very excited to bring these iconic characters back to the fans who have supported us through this franchise,” said Lee, as reported by Deadline. “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!…”
“🙌🏾Best news ever! Each movie just gets better and better. I feel like I’ve formed friendships with each character 😂,” one excited IG user commented.
“My favorite movie of all time!!!! Been waiting YEARS for this 3rd and final chapter,” another said.
The only original Best Man cast member who will not star in the new dramedy is Monica Calhoun, whose character Mia died in The Best Man Holiday.
