Surviving R. Kelly returns for its final chapter to detail Kelly’s criminal trials
Lifetime released a trailer for Part III, which is confirmed as The Final Chapter. Set to premiere over two nights on Jan. 2-3, 2022, the series promises to chronicle the fallout that followed Kelly after he was arrested in 2019 for multiple sex crimes. Also examined will be how his career has been impacted since his music has been pulled largely from radio and streaming platforms. But the biggest thing to uncover is what took place in his first two criminal trials since the docuseries first premiered.
Per Lifetime, the upcoming episodes will feature over 60 testimonials from experts, journalists, and victims, with night one focused on the court testimonial of his former live-in girlfriend, Azriel Clary. Kelly’s bizarre interview with Gayle King is also a hot topic in the doc, as well as the alleged extreme lengths Kelly and his handlers went to keep his accusers silent amid the fallout.
