R-Kelly’s ‘Hip Hopera’, Trapped in the Closet – the infamous R&B melodrama – is due an update, with another chapter on the cards. The next instalment returna on Nov. 23 at 9 p.m. on IFC, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Many questions remained unanswered when the credits rolled on the last chapter; What would become of Sylvester and Twan? What was this “package” that everybody kept talking about? Does Pimp Lucius have more secrets? And what of Big Man? All these questions are due to be covered when 10, yes you heard it right, 10 new episodes hit the internet, starting late November. Fans of the series will be delighted to hear that everyone’s favourite musical soap opera is returning, although most of it’s loyal fans view the series via an ironic sense of sympathy rather than a genuine desire to glean the next nugget of tasty R&B sung gossip. We love every minute of it.
R. Kelly, who’s career took a strange turn when he decided to do these songs, announced that there will be a return of many cast members including Rufus, Gwendolyn, Big Man and Rosie the Nosy Neighbour. These chapters will be released under the title Trapped in the Closet: The Next Installment and will be released in Fall 2012.
