Season 4 of BET’s gripping drama series Being Mary Jane premiered in January, with Gabrielle Union returning as feisty news anchor Mary Jane Paul. It promises to be an explosive season of the breakout hit series. Tune into BET (DStv channel 129) at 21:30 CAT on Mondays to follow the drama.

In the previous season, Mary Jane kept us on the edge of our seats after surviving a car accident, losing her friend Lisa, watching her interracial love affair fall apart and coming to terms with a brutal police attack on her niece. In the new series, as she tries to navigate singlehood and put her past behind her, Mary Jane resolves to take a bite out of the Big Apple and make her way to the anchor chair of Good Day USA, the top-rated New York morning show where she now works as a correspondent. Starting over isn’t easy and Mary Jane struggles to climb the ladder, grappling with some of life’s toughest issues, all the while trying to keep her relationships, both work and personal, intact.

Being Mary Jane is a game-changing smash hit that’s been hailed as “spicy and explosive” by Essence magazine and lauded by Entertainment Weekly. The third season earned a 2016 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, and Gabrielle Union’s critically acclaimed performance has shattered the internet with nonstop chatter about her character’s unbreakable spirit in the face of tragedy, extortion and relationship drama.

Gabrielle has been adding her own brand of magic to the series since it made its TV debut in 2013. According to a report in entertainment industry trade bible Hollywood Reporter, the third season of the show ranks as the No.1 cable series among black viewers in the US between the ages of 18 and 49.

See what life and love have in store for Mary Jane in the tantalising new season of Being Mary Jane.
