R. Kelly is going back into the "Closet."

The R&B star's mind-boggling hip-hop opera (or hip-hopera, if you will) returns to the IFC channel with a whole new installment on Nov. 23 at 9 p.m.

IFC.com will feature one new chapter each day online after its airdate, and the network will air marathons of previous chapters in order to get fans caught up starting Thanksgiving Day at 10 a.m. (Could "Trapped in the Closet" replace Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" as America's favorite Turkey Day tradition?)

Until then, IFC has unleashed the 23rd chapter of Kelly's video saga, with plenty of recaps from previous chapters to get everyone up to speed.

Check it out in the video below.
