From 2005-2007 R. Kelly shocked the world with his hip-hopera styled “Trapped in the Closet” music videos. The original series, which was twenty two chapters in length, told the story of a one night stand gone terribly wrong. I’m sure we can all remember tuning into our TV’s and computers to see the latest crazy premiere of a “Trapped in the Closet” chapter.
Fast forward to 2012 and we see R. Kelly’s return to his “Trapped in the Closet” franchise. This fall, the IFC cable network will air new episodes of the series it helped launch back in 2007. Kell’s has reportedly written thirty two episodes for the season two premiere. It’s unclear whether or not IFC will air all of the chapters.
Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man and the rest of the crew bring back the drama in this IFC teaser of “Trapped in the Closet.”
