Last year, R. Kelly promised fans more chapters of his popular “Trapped In The Closet” video series, and now the singer is making good on his promise. Kelly recently confirmed that he ll release 32 more chapters at the end of the year on IFC.
Kelly originally began the series, which chronicles a one-night stand that turns into a soap opera of sex, scandal and lies, back in 2005. He released the first chapters as singles from his TP.3 Reloaded album. All subsequent chapters, 22 in total, were released exclusively on DVD.
“When I first began experiencing the unknown journey of writing Trapped in the Closet I knew after the first chapter that I had tapped into something that was not of this earth,” Kelly said in a statement. “Being the nosy person that I am, I more than anyone wanted to know what the second chapter would be. And now here we are at chapter 23, trapped in the million dollar question – what the hell is the package? Well, ladies and gentlemen, not only am I ready to reveal what the package is, but I have many more chapters to share,” said Kelly in a statement.
IFC said that fans will be introduced to a slew of new characters and see appearances from their favorite characters from the past.
“The premiere chapters were a suspenseful, mysterious, humorous and dramatic story, packed with cliffhangers and unexpected twists and turns. Now, Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Twan and Pimp Lucius are back. This year, the crew reunites on IFC in the next installments of R. Kelly s continuing hip-hopera about a group of characters interconnected by sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package,” according to a statement from IFC.
