Tyler Perry brings back Madea for new Netflix movie 'A Madea Homecoming'


Madea is officially out of retirement.

Tyler Perry is bringing back his iconic role as the hilarious, overdramatic grandma, who has grossed over $1 billion at the box office, for his latest movie coming to Netflix, Deadline reports.

“A Madea Homecoming” will be the franchise’s 12th movie and is expected to have a 2022 release date.

Although the film does not yet have a plot, the film will be directed by Perry, who will also write alongside Will Areu. The film will be produced by Mark Swinton, and Perry and Michelle Sneed will serve as the movie’s Executive Producers.

Madea made her last appearance in the 2019 Lionsgate feature “A Madea Family Funeral," which Perry reportedly said would be Madea’s final film, the outlet reports. However the film made $75 million at the global box office, and clearly her work is not done.

Perry first began working with the streaming service after last year’s release of “A Fall From Grace” which was watched by 39 million households in its first month. Perry is also writing, directing, and producing “A Jazzman’s Blues” for Netflix staring Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer.

“A Madea Homecoming” has not yet been given a specific 2022 release date.
