For all intents and purposes, R. Kelly is going back to the trap. After televising the first 33 chapters of R. Kelly’s intricate musical dramedy “Trapped In The Closet”, television network IFC has announced today (December 3rd) that they will debut more chapters in 2014.
In addition to the new chapters next year, IFC is scheduling a marathon of all 33 current “Trapped In The Closet” chapters this Saturday (Dec 7) at 5:15 p.m. EST on IFC.
In 2007, Matt Singer of IFC TV interviewed R. Kelly as apart of the premiere of Trapped In The Closet: The Complete Saga on IFC. During the interview, Singer recounts that Kelly fully understood and intended for the absurdity in “Trapped In The Closet” and even gave a hilarious idea of the source of his inspiration:
I had no idea what to expect from our interview. I was very relieved he did not take the project too seriously. When I asked him where these insane ideas came from, he replied something to the effect of ‘From the aliens.’
R. Kelly’s “Trapped In The Closet” premiered in 2005. Every episode of “Trapped In The Closet” can be viewed on the IFC website.
