Say it isn’t so. Tyler Perry is laying his iconic character Madea to rest after two decades of laughs and memories. He had some really interesting reasons explaining why. I am looking forward to seeing what he has next for us. Let’s all pay our respects to a legend. Here is what he had to say about his decision.
USA TODAY Madea’s days of crude language and criminal offenses are coming to an end.
Tyler Perry, 49, revealed Monday that he’s killing off the iconic character next year, nearly two decades after everyone was introduced to the gun-toting grandmother.
Don’t fret. Madea will make a final cameo in a farewell stage tour and in 2019’s “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral,” but based on Perry’s admission, it may be the profane matriarch being laid to rest.
