“THE SOUL MAN” RETURNS FOR FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON March 30th at 10:30 PM ET/PT on TV LAND
Cedric “The Entertainer,” Niecy Nash, Wesley Jonathan, John Beasley and Special Guest Star, Missi Pyle
“The Soul Man” follows Boyce (Cedric “The Entertainer”) after he relocated with his wife, hairdresser Lolli (Primetime Emmy(R)-nominated Niecy Nash) from Las Vegas to St. Louis, where they’re constantly caught between their celebrity life and the simple life of a reverend’s family. They’ve always had plenty of obstacles in their way and this fifth and final season is no different.
This season, Boyce (Cedric) sets out on a campaign trail to run for Mayor with his sassy and supportive wife, Lolli (Niecy Nash) by his side, while his brother Stamps (Wesley Jonathan), who is still trying to figure out life, attempts to help him campaign the best way he knows how. Boyce’s father, Barton (John Beasley) is still holding the reigns to the church, and rounding out the cast, Missi Pyle has joined as Boyce’s overly-aggressive but “not quite all there” campaign manager, Alicia.

TV Land says:
“The Soul Man” is TV Land’s original sitcom, created by Cedric “The Entertainer” and “Hot in Cleveland” creator Suzanne Martin. The show revolves around Cedric’s character, Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister who takes over as preacher of his father’s church. Niecy Nash (“Reno 911”) also stars as the reverend’s wife, Lolli. The character of Reverend Boyce originated on a second season episode of “Hot in Cleveland” in which Cedric guest-starred.
