Fans of the action-comedy cop franchise ‘Bad Boys’ are hyped after American actors Will Smith and Martin Lawrence together announced a fourth instalment.
The iconic duo celebrated the return of Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett to silver screens on Tuesday (January 31) in a nearly minute-and-a-half video.
An excited Smith drove to Lawrence’s California home to make the big reveal, sharing the news with his over 62 million Instagram followers.
“IT’S ABOUT THAT TIME!” he captioned the Instagram reel to a rousing social media reception.
The video has amassed millions of views on Martin Lawrence’s verified Twitter page, where die-hard movie enthusiasts are ecstatic. Others went further to appeal for the Rush Hour franchise to similarly be rebooted with Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

‘Bad Boys 4’ is slated to become the third sequel in the ever-expanding franchise; announced three years after the January 2020 release of ‘Bad Boys for Life’.
More recently, Lawrence’s most recent performance as Jake Doyle in the 2022 thriller ‘Mindcage’ was panned by critics, while Smith received mixed reviews for his portrayal of Peter in the 2022 historical drama ‘Emancipation’.
