Cedric "The Entertainer," Niecy Nash and Wesley Jonathan are pulling out all the stops for the season 4 return, and they're bringing along special guest star Sherri Shepherd for the ride. Shepherd will guest star as Nikki, Boyce's (Cedric) unruly cousin who always has a few tricks up her sleeve. The Soul Man will take over all social media platforms on premiere night by releasing exclusive guest star interviews, photos from the set and more. The cast will also countdown to the live celebration by launching never-before-seen bloopers using the hashtag #NoSecondTakes. The official hashtag for premiere night is #SOULMANLive.
