After a very short hiatus, Madea is back.

In 2019 Tyler Perry, who plays Madea, announced that he would discontinue the famous character in several movies and theatre productions.

At the time, he told Page Six: "I've made my last Madea. It made so many people laugh but turning 50; I don't want to be her age playing her."

In June last year, he announced that Madea was coming out of retirement and heading to Netflix.

"We need to laugh, so I was done, but she's coming back," he said.

On Thursday, the streaming service shared the trailer for the film A Madea Homecoming.

"Madea prepares to welcome her family who have all come into town to celebrate her great-grandson's graduation from college when some hidden secrets threaten to destroy the joyous family homecoming," reads the official synopsis.


The film premieres on Netflix on, Friday 25 February.
