‘Madea’ fans, it is actually happening!

I feel like everyone has to know the ‘Madea’ character right?
‘Madea’ was first introduced in a play called ‘I Can Do Bad All By Myself’ back in 1999 and just exploded from there in movies, television, other theater shows, and even a book.
Back in 2019, Tyler Perry had mentioned retiring his ‘Madea’ character after the release of ‘A Madea Family Funeral’.
I don’t want to be her age playing her, so it was time to shut it down and move on. I’ve got some other things I want to do, and in this next 50, I’m going to do something different.Tyler Perry told The Hollywood Reporter
I guess the people spoke and he changed his mind to give old ‘Madea’ one more go!
The ‘Madea’ franchise includes 11 movies and 20 plays that have grossed over $1 billion at the North American box office, that’s a lot of $$!
The new film will be written and directed by Tyler Perry with Michelle Sneed executive producing with him.
‘A Madea Homecoming’ is aiming for a 2022 release on Netflix!
