At this point, it pretty much feels like we won’t be getting an actual Bad Boys sequel. However, if you’re still in desperate need of your Bad Boys fix, then NBC may have you covered.
According to Deadline, a Bad Boys spinoff series starring Gabrielle Union (who was in Bad Boys II) has just been picked up by NBC with a pilot production commitment.

Variety describes the Bad Boys spinoff as follows:
“Union will star as Syd Burnett, her character from Bad Boys 2, who was last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel. As an LAPD detective, she can now 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 may be masking a greater personal secret. “
The Blacklist’s Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis will serve as writers and executive producer son the series, and Jerry Bruckheimer will also serve as executive producer.
So while Bad Boys for Life may be a film that is destined to wallow in development hell, the franchise can still live on in this new iteration. What do you think? Are you interested in this spinoff series? Let us know down below!
