Tyler Perry Is Killing Off His Madea Character Once And For All

He said after his farewell tour, he will release the last Madea movie titled "A Madea Family Funeral" and that would be all. He's also excited to focus on different kinds of projects, including Acrimony, out earlier this year, and Nobody's Fool, due out in November, both of which Perry wrote and produced. He also plans to stage a farewell tour in 2019, along with the character's final film, Tyler Perry's a Madea Family Funeral.

But all good things must come to an end, as Perry explains why it's time to put Madea to rest. Perry told the interviewer that he filmed her Funeral film two years ago, and he's finally ready to say goodbye to the character.

"It's time for me to kill that old bitch", he joked.

A tough elderly woman, Madea made her first appearance in Perry's 1999 stage play "I Can Do Bad All By Myself".

Hitting theaters March 1! The film was the eighth film directed exclusively around the Madea character but received mostly negative reviews from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. The character is known to use comical and vulgar language, and has a litany of criminal offenses, which was especially highlighted in 2009's "Madea Goes to Jail".
