It’s Official!! Madea Is Back,Tyler Perry Announces

It’s official Madea is back. Tyler Perry announced the news on social media, slipping easily into Madea’s voice, if not her costume, saying: “This is Madea saying I’m coming back, and I’m not Netflix, and I can’t wait to tell you.”

“I was done,” Perry continues, as Madea interrupts. “But I wasn’t.”

He is taking his iconic feminine character, which has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, to Netflix with a 12th movie, A Madea Homecoming. A 2022 drop date is planned.

He will direct and write with Will Areu and Mark Swinton producing.

Tyler Perry has previously worked with Netflix following last year’s release of A Fall From Grace which was watched by 39M households in its first month. He is also writing, directing and producing A Jazzman’s Blues for Netflix. 

Madea’s debut was in 2005’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” the gun-toting grandma became a worldwide sensation.
