Gabrielle Union is coming back to television (Being Mary Jane will say goodbye to fans in a two hour episode sometime this year), and we can hardly wait! The 45-year-old actress will reprise her role as Sydney Burnett in the cult classic Bad Boys franchise.
As previously reported, the NBC-led series will follow Special Agent Burnett who was “last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, now is an LAPD detective and can pursue all the pleasures Los Angeles has to offer and leave her past behind. But things will get complicated when her new partner, Nancy McKenna, learns that Syd’s unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret.”
Although untitled, the network has ordered a pilot, which will likely follow with a full series.
Hopefully this will appease fans until the third installment of the film is released — or shall we say, if it’s released. While in development for quite some time, last year Martin Lawrence opened up about the status of the movie, saying, “it probably won’t happen.”
