R. Kelly's Releasing New Chapters Of 'Trapped In The Closet,' We Are Rejoicing Profusely

Never fear, fly ladies and soul gentlemen -- R. Kelly's epic tale of love, lies, sex and tragedy will carry on! The best 22-part hip-hopera you've ever seen, "Trapped In The Closet," is returning with more chapters just as R. Kelly recently promised. And we are so very thankful.

R. (or "Robert," as he's known colloquially) shared a preview video of the next 32 "Trapped" chapters (totalling 54 all in!), and even though it's really just a vague wrap-up of everything that happened in the first 22 chapters, it's still an amazing video that should win an award or several. Shout-out to the black-and-white grainy shots of Kels in the studio playing the keyboard -- it sends the message that this is le serious art film, which we're sure it is. Catch the new chapters premiering on IFC later this year.

R. Kelly hits the jackpot again. You're welcome for the best news of your day.
