Tyler Perry bringing Madea to Netflix for 12th film, ‘A Madea Homecoming’

Perry will write, direct and star in the film, donning Madea’s dress, wig and devil-may-care attitude one more time. Perry retired MabelMadeaSimmons in 2020 with the sold-outMadea’s Farewell Tour” (which was also filmed for BET plus), while the character’s final film appearance came in 2019’sA Madea Family Funeral,” where Perry ostensibly closed the casket on the character.

Perry has been quietly developing the project since last fall.

I was done with Madea, completely done with it,” Perry told Variety, when he was honored as 2020’s Showman of the Year.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 film will be shot entirely at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Ga., with plans for a 2022 debut on Netflix. Overseeing the project are Tyler Perry Studios president of production and development Michelle Sneed, who will executive produce alongside Perry, with TPS execs Will Areu and Mark Swinton producing the film.


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