The long awaited New Edition miniseries is getting bigger with each casting update.

As we’ve previously reported, Empire’s Bryshere Gray will will be joined by Elijah Kelley (“The Butler”) as Ricky Bell; singer-songwriter Luke James as Johnny Gill; Algee Smith (“Let It Shine”) as Ralph Tresvant.


Keith Powers (“Straight Outta Compton”) will star as Ronnie Devoe, and Woody McClain (“Autographs”) as Bobby Brown.



Now the mothers of the group members have been cast and we’re loving the choices so far.

Lala Anthony will play Flo DeVoe, mother of the young Ronnie DeVoe, Yvette Nicole Brown will play Michael Bivins’ mother Shirley Bivins, Monica Calhoun is Ralph Tresvant’s mother Patricia Tresvant, Lisa Nicole Carson will play Ricky Bell’s mother Mae Bell and Sandi McCree is Bobby Brown’s mother Carole Brown.

What do you think of the choices so far?
