The highly-anticipated The New Edition Story follow-up miniseries, The Bobby Brown Story, premiered Tuesday night and Twitter was buzzing.

The two-part miniseries sees McClain reprising his role as Bobby Brown, joined by Gabrielle Dennis as Whitney Houston, as well as Mekhi Phifer, Lil Rel Howery, T.K. Carter, Laz Alonso, Lance Gross, Alyssa Goss, Sandi McCree and Tyler James Williams.

It picks up where the New Edition mini left off. It chronicles the talented but troubled singer’s exit from the popular ’80s boy band through his solo success, his affair with Janet Jackson and tabloid-fodder marriage to pop icon Whitney Houston. Spanning 30 years of Brown’s life, the new project follows his story from the hard streets of Roxbury, where he turned to a life of drug dealing before being given the chance to prove himself as a solo artist.

Some of the best reactions from Tuesday night include:

Stanning for the legend that is Sandi McCree.

Did they really?

At this point…

The Janet and Bobby bombshell.

Gabrielle Dennis and Woody McClain’s ACTING!

Some other biopic suggestions.

Folks recognized the person we really need to hear from.

But understood why we haven’t.

And everyone is ready for Part 2, which airs at the same time Wednesday night on BET!
