R Kelly has revealed that 2014 will bring further chapters of his Trapped In The Closet hip-hop opera.

The Stateside IFC network will air the new episodes at some point in the coming year, reports FACT, with the channel stating that the new episodes will bring more "intense drama, crazy situations and tumultuous relationships". So far the long-running series has seen 33 chapters released.

Speaking in 2012, R Kelly revealed that he was adapting his hip-hop opera into a Broadway musical. The R&B star's bizarre operetta, which he began in 2005, returned late last year with 20 new chapters. Speaking at the premiere of the new chapters at New York's Landmark Sunshine Theatre, Kelly revealed that he had plans to take the show onto Broadway.

In a post-screening Q&A, Kelly announced he "just got an offer from Broadway to do a Broadway version" and was in the process of adapting the shorts for the stage. When asked if there was plans for himself to appear in the Trapped In The Closet musical, Kelly added: "Some of the cities, I can't guarantee all of them, and that's what's being negotiated right now because it takes a lot of time to do these chapters—I'm the only one in the studio writing these chapters."

R Kelly releases his 12th studio album, 'Black Panties', next week.
