The release also states that New Edition will be touring next year, hitting more than 30 arenas across the United States, as well as their own residency in Las Vegas.

BET aired the New Edition Story, a biopic about the Roxbury, Massachusetts group, in 2017. Featuring acting from Luke James, Woody McClain, Elijah Kelley, Bryshere Y. Gray, Algee Smith and Keith Powers, the three-part miniseries documented the boy band’s rise to fame during the 1980s.

The series was watched by 29 million viewers. That same year BET honored the group with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing the group as one of the originators of R&B.
