R. Kelly has opened the door for fans of Trapped In The Closet. The operatic R&B saga will continue.
Kelly, who first kick started the music video series in 2005, will showcase Trapped in the Closet: The Next Installment on both the IFC network and IFC.com starting November 23. The next chapter will feature many of the memorable characters from the over-the-top musical.
“Now, Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Twan and Pimp Lucius are back!” read an IFC press release. “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.”
Kells first made the announcement that there would be a return to the Closet series back in December of 2011 but the date was not nailed down at that time.
He is indeed a busy man. In addition to the return of Trapped In The Closet, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter-producer is currently on a U.S. trek with R&B vocalist Tamia on the Single Ladies tour.—Keith Murphy, CBS Local
