R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” series returns later this month with 20 brand new chapters. In advance of the Black Friday premiere on IFC, Pitchfork has revealed stills from the epic saga.
The plot revolves around “a cast of characters interconnected by sexual exploits, quarreling lovers, and a mysterious package,” with familiar faces including Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Tina, Roxanne, Randolph, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Reverend Mosley, Twan, and Pimp Lucius.
R. Kelly will also introduce two new characters: Dr. Perry, “a therapist at Rufus and Cathy’s church guiding them throughmarriage counseling,” and Beeno, “a powerful underworld kingpin.”
IFC has provided a character map to get you up to speed before the premiere on November 23 at 9 p.m. EST.
