The wait is over! R&B icon and multi-platinum recording artist R. Kelly returns to IFC with brand-new chapters of his bold hip-hopera, Trapped in the Closet premiering Friday, November 23 at 9:00pm ET/PT only on IFC. Get caught up on previous chapters of this cultural phenomenon with marathons starting Thanksgiving Day at 10:00am ET/PT. An exclusive sneak peek of the new installment, "Chapter 23", is available below.

The new chapters bring more suspense, mystery and drama - plus lots of unexpected twists. Hopping aboard for this next installment are two new faces, both played by R. Kelly: Dr. Perry, a therapist at Rufus and Cathy's church guiding them through marriage counseling; and Beeno, a powerful underworld kingpin.

Launching today, IFC.com will host all previous Trapped in the Closet chapters online at IFC.com/Trapped, along with in-depth character profiles and in the coming weeks, behind-the-scenes footage. After the on-air premiere, IFC.com will feature one new chapter each day online.
