Late last year, Tyler Perry announced that his character Madea—everyone’s favorite feisty grandma—would be retiring in 2019.
After nearly 15 years of starring in cult favorite films like Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea’s Family Reunion, and Madea Goes to Jail, the beloved Perrycharacter will be starring in her 10th and final film this spring: A Madea Family Funeral, which hits theaters March 1.
