When it really comes down to it, the 1995 classic film Friday may go down as the greatest stoner comedy of all time. Not that it was all about weed, but let’s just say it wouldn’t be the same if Craig didn’t hit that blunt.
It’s been over 20 years since the first movie dropped and a lot has changed. Ice Cube’s son is now a movie star, Bernie Mac is gone (RIP!) and no one still knows where the f*ck Chris Tucker is.
Still, even though there was already a couple of follow ups with Next Friday and Friday After Next, there have been rumblings over the past few years about ending the franchise with Last Friday. Mike Epps and John Witherspoon added to those rumors by sharing this video last week.

Now Ice Cube has finally confirmed all the speculation on a recent appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Obviously this is major news and there are so many questions we have about the new flick. First off would it make sense if Ice Cube’s son just played him at this point? And where the hell is Chris Tucker again?!
This could also mean that accomplished director F. Gary Gray who had recent successes such as Straight Outta Compton and Fast 8 could be making a return to the Friday franchise and helping close out the series.
If there’s one thing that’s for certain it’s that the fans are already way too hyped.

There’s a lot of speculation about how and what could happen next but the fact that this shit is going down is all the matters. Shout out Smokey and Craig.
