The BET show Being Mary Jane will come to an end in 2018. The show will close with a two-hour series finale movie that will be aired on BET.

Being Mary Jane has been on the air for four seasons starring Gabrielle Union as a top journalist with a hard to live personal life that always seemed to conflict with work. The fourth season ended on September 19, 2017.

A day after the announcement of the show’s end on October 11, 2017, Union took to social media sharing her heartfelt emotions with fans and thanking them for the journey.

To Every Fan of Being Mary Jane, We have all worked so tirelessly to bring you a show that we could be proud to be a part of. Mary Jane has become my favorite character. We've screwed up together, laughed together, evolved together, and raised hell together. I love all her imperfections, and through playing her I became more forgiving of others who are imperfect and on the journey of self discovery and improvement. We watched her struggle with relationships with both men and women, and we watched her finally start to get her shit together. But the journey isn't over yet. We, as a Being Mary Jane family, cannot wait to bring you this final 2 hour series finale movie that will answer all your questions about each and every character. More than anything, however, we want to thank you with every fiber of our being for faithfully watching the show and supporting our work… from the actors, writers, producers, directors and enormous crew over the years, we are humbled and we remain grateful. Thank you!

“Mary Jane has become my favorite character,” wrote Union. “We’ve screwed up together, laughed together, evolved together, and raised hell together.”

For many, Mary Jane was a symbol of strength and hope so hearing that show was ending didn’t go over well with them. Fans expressed their sadness with comments like, “I’m really going to miss this show. I saw myself in Mary Jane and it gave me hope…,” or, “It was so amazing seeing a powerful, unapologetic, multi-faceted, no bullshit, flawed Black woman on television. You brought so much complexity to your role and taught me so much as an actress and woman. ✊🏾”

 

But Union wanted her fans to know just how thankful she was for them. “More than anything, however, we want to thank you with every fiber of our being for faithfully watching the show and supporting our work,” she wrote. She continued, “…from the actors, writers, producers, directors and enormous crew over the years, we are humbled and we remain grateful. Thank you!”

  2. I am very disappointed of the cancellation of Being Mary Jane. It seems that anything with a Positive role or character for Women of Color don’t last long!Wishing you much love & success Gabrielle on your next venture. Maybe if we bitch enough they’ll bring it back.!!
