Fans of “The Best Man” franchise are still not over the shocking death of Mia in the sequel. 

During a recent interview with Essence, the writer and director of the film talked about why he decided for Mia, played by Monica Calhoun, would be the one to die at the end of the movie. 

“We’ve both been affected by cancer, her mom and her dad,” Lee said. “I wanted to really tell a story where Black folks got to emote at the movie theater. We don’t get a chance to do that very often so I wanted it to happen and it wasn’t going to happen with any other character as much as it would with Mia. That was the most meaningful one which is why I think it hurt so much.” 

However, audiences are getting ready for the premiere of “The Best Man: The Final Chapters”, a mini-series that will air on December 22, 2022, on Peacock. Watch the official trailer below.
