The television event premiered Tuesday night and its first episode sent social media into a frenzy.
On Tuesday, BET’s highly anticipated three-night The New Edition Story miniseries kicked off with a bang, and fans rushed to social media to share their thoughts.
During the first episode, we witnessed the formation of New Edition as just a few little kids pursuing a dream, money, and girls. Many Twitter users were floored by the flawless casting, with one writing, “I’m convinced this little boy is actually Bobby Brown’s son. Hell it might even be Bobby himself.”

Round of applause to the casting director. #NewEditionBET— Michael Arceneaux (@youngsinick) January 25, 2017
Others had a lot of questions, specifically about who was looking out for these kids and why no one read their music contract.
We can’t wait for the next episode!
