R. Kelly Says 20 More Chapters Of 'Trapped In The Closet' Coming For Thanksgiving; Watch New Episode Now

In case you missed it back in March, R. Kelly's glorious, insane, amazeballs "Trapped in the Closet" is coming back, this time courtesty of IFC. If you haven't seen it -- and by God, do everything in your power to catch up -- the original genius musical/drama/hip hopera was conceived, performed, sung, narrated and acted by Kelly (and a number of guest stars) and centered on a one-night stand gone horribly, strangely and surreally wrong. The good news for fans was that the R&B singer promised even more to come, and then word went quiet. Well, it appears it's coming very soon, and just time for a weekend when we'll be wanting to stretch out with the extra loose pants on.

Trapped In The Closet

In case you missed it back in March, R. Kelly's glorious, insane, amazeballs "Trapped in the Closet" is coming back, this time courtesty of IFC. If you haven't seen it -- and by God, do everything in your power to catch up -- the original genius musical/drama/hip hopera was conceived, performed, sung, narrated and acted by Kelly (and a number of guest stars) and centered on a one-night stand gone horribly, strangely and surreally wrong. The good news for fans was that the R&B singer promised even more to come, and then word went quiet. Well, it appears it's coming very soon, and just time for a weekend when we'll be wanting to stretch out with the extra loose pants on. 

"We just shot 20 chapters. They’ll be coming out the day after Thanksgiving," he recently told Time as he prepares to go out on his Single Ladies tour. So prepare to tell your relatives in advance that your visiting time might be a bit shorter than planned. As for the content of the chapters, we can only imagine, but surely the man who brought us "The Zoo" won't disappoint. And that's not all.

" 'Trapped in the Closet' is forever. I’ve got like a hundred chapters to come," he added before emphasizing: "It’s forever." Let's hope. Tune in on November 23rd and watch the first episode below.
