Tyler Perry has announced that a new Madea film is coming, the 12th film in the Madea series.
This new release, titled ‘A Madea Homecoming‘ will be released on Netflix.
Perry had previously retired Mabel “Madea” Simmons in 2020 with the sold out BET special, Madea’s Farewell Tour. However, the Academy Award winner will be back in the wig, dress and attitude one more time. Perry will as always write, direct and star in the film.
When asked, Perry explained..
“I was done with Madea, completely done with it. But as I’ve been looking at the state of the world — and I finished a tour in January, just before the pandemic started to break in the country — and the amount of joy and laughter that it brought to so many people, that’s what I think is missing. We need that laughter and that joy.”
The new movie will be shot entirely at Tyler Perry Studios and plans to debut on Netflix in 2022. Tyler Perry Studios president of production and development Michelle Sneed will executive produce alongside Perry, studio executives Will Areu and Mark Swinton also producing the film.
