Tyler Perry’s says he’s finally ready to retire the ‘Madea’ Franchise for good and fans will get to say goodbye to the character with his upcoming Tyler Perry’s a Madea Family Funeral.

“This is it,” Perry told SiriusXM radio host Bevy Smith on her show “Bevelations” on Monday. “It’s time for me to kill that old bitch. I’m tired!”

Family Funeral will be the eighth and final film in the Madea franchise.

We’re gonna say goodbye in ’19,” Perry said. “I just don’t want to be her age playing her.”

He’ll also be taking the character on a “farewell” stage tour, including some of the original characters and actors from the blockbuster films.

When Smith asked Perry if he would ever consider doing a play on Broadway,  he replied: “My thing with Broadway is that you got to do the exact same thing every night, the exact same way. That wouldn’t work for me. I’d piss off all the producers. I’d be like, look, we gotta do something different.”

  1. I’m surprise political correctness haven’t stopprf Madea yet. Fat shaming, age shaming, black women shaming, child abuse, man dressed as an unattractive woman, what else.

    Bye Madea! I can do without the “laugh”. I’ve never known how to feel about our most prominent and best paid comedians, Perry, Murphy, Lawrence putting on fat suits, bad wigs, and house dresses to portray our aging mothers, grandmothers and aunts. Even worse was the cussing, slapping children around, gun play, etc. Maybe some people had a mother & grandmother like that, or knew somebody like that, but I didn’t. I know they’re just characters, But it’s become the most visible portrayal of elderly black women. My hat’s off to Dave Chappell for refusing to put on the dress, no matter what his reasons were. Bye Madea!

    • It is a character that made Tyler plenty of money that people love. Anyone taking it further than that is their problem. This is no different that Flip Wilson, grandmama mama and many others. I do not think he is going to kill her off. If so, she will come back to life. LOL
