Phone tag is the name of the game as R. Kelly unveils the latest installment in his dramatic Trapped in the Closet hip-hopera.
Chapter 23 finds us back with several familiar faces. Kellz kicks back in a chair and re-introduces us to his intertwined cast of characters and their issues, opening up a book and singing along to the plot line. Rufus, Twan, Bridget, and more receive strange calls from a mysterious source and everyone is present and accounted for except Chuck.
“Where are you, Chuck?” sings Kelly at the end, foreshadowing a mystery soon to be solved.
Trapped in the Closet premieres on IFC on Friday, November 23, at 9 p.m. “We just shot 20 chapters. They’ll be coming out the day after Thanksgiving,” Kellz told TIME. “Trapped in the Closet is forever. I’ve got like a hundred chapters to come.”
