Tyler Perry Is Taking Madea Off The Shelf For Netflix Film ‘A Madea Homecoming’

Shocker of shocker: Tyler Perry just couldn’t let Madea stay dead. Only a couple of years after he put the Doubtfire-esque character to bed with 2019’s A Madea Family Funeral, Perry has resurrected her for his upcoming Netflix film, A Madea Homecoming.

I mean, it makes sense. Perry obviously wants his new deal with Netflix to be a smash, and what better way than bringing back Madea who has earned more than $1B billion dollars at the global box office.

As for plot details for A Madea Homecoming, there aren’t any yet. Perry will star, write, direct, and produce the film, his second for Netflix following last year’s A Fall from Grace which was seen in 39M households according to Deadline.
