Netflix also announced that Perry would be bringing his beloved character Madea out of retirement for the 12th installment which is tentatively titled A Madea Homecoming. The next movie will be shot entirely at Tyler Perry Studios and is expected to be released on Netflix in 2022.

The Madea movie will be the latest work from Perry for Netflix following last year’s release of A Fall From Grace. According to Netflix, that movie was seen by 39 million households in just its first month of streaming. He will also be writing, directing, and producing A Jazzman’s Blues for Netflix. That project will star Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer. The film unravels forty years of secrets and lies in a tale of forbidden love and family drama soundtracked by juke joint blues in the deep South.

Perry will write and direct A Madea Homecoming as well as executive produce the film, along with his company’s president of production and development, Michelle Sneed. Will Areu and Mark Swinton will be the producers for the project.

With the onslaught of movies Perry has produced, including 11 of them being a part of the Madea franchise, they have collectively grossed over 1 billion dollars at the North American box office.
