Tyler Perry reveals he's killing off iconic Madea character

Tyler Perry Plans to Kill Off 'Madea' Character in 2019

In 2019, he's sending Madea to the upper room with a farewell stage tour and his forthcoming film, Tyler Perry's a Madea Family Funeral, slated to arrive on March 1, 2019.

"It's time for me to kill that old b***h, I'm exhausted, man", he said.

After amassing $500M worldwide starring as Mabel Earlene "Madea" Simmons in 10 films and 10 plays, Tyler Perry has made a decision to bid farewell to the fictional 87-year-old grandmother-of-five for good.

The 49-year-old actor and director in an interview on Bevy Smith's SiriusXM show on Monday said that he's ready to "kill" off the hilarious grandmother character in 2019. "We're gonna say goodbye in '19", he said. In a recent interview, Perry confirmed that 2019 will be the past year of Madea. The play was directed and written by Perry, who also starred in the play and portrayed the fictional character.

With Schwartz not blitzing, it leaves his cornerbacks on an island and forces themselves to defend for an extended period of time. On paper, that looks like a formidable outside combination with Jones playing as the nickel back and Mills moving to safety.

Tyler (born Emmitt) is arguably one of the hardest working men in show business creating plays, TV shows, and movies out of his 330-acre former military base, Tyler Perry Studios.

Spanning 10 installments, the Madea film franchise has garnered more than $500 million worldwide.

The final film also coincides with Perry's Lionsgate deal coming to a close.

Are you sad to see Madea go?
