The Best Man: The Final Chapters

Based on Malcolm D Lee’s multi-award-winning film franchise, The Best Man: The Final Chapters catches up 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 Best Man: The Final Chapters won the 2023 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Television Movie, Limited Series or Dramatic Special, as well as Best Actor for Morris Chestnut as Lance and Best Supporting Actress for Nia Long as Jordan. 

The Peacock Original is also up for a record 18 awards in August at the 2023 Black Reel Awards for Television – the most by any programme ever in a single year. This includes acting nominations for Chestnut and Long, as well as their co-stars Terrence Howard, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Sanaa Lathan, Melissa de Sousa and Harold Perrineau. 

The Best Man: The Final Chapters has a 91% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Variety saying, “For fans of a specific period of Black cinema [romcoms between 1990 to 2000], Peacock’s The Best Man: The Final Chapters is an epic, end-of-an-era conclusion on par with Avengers: Endgame.”
