‘Hallelujer!’ Madea returns in first look at Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming



EW has your exclusive first look at her new adventures in Netflix‘s upcoming Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming.” I was looking at the state of the world and how polarized it is… nobody’s laughing,” the writer-director-producer tells EW. “Nobody’s getting the chance to belly-laugh anymore. And I’m like, ‘What tool do I have in my arsenal that can bring that kind of laughter?'”

Perry reveals, Homecoming revolves around an LGBTQ storyline, something the director hopes sends a message of inclusion to audiences. “How long does it have to be before you understand something?” says Perry, referring to those who harbor anti-LGBTQ sentiment. “Even if you don’t understand, be open… I just think that if everything gets accepted in love, then you get a chance to see the person for who they are rather than what you think they are.”

The film features all-stars of the Madea franchise, including Tamela J. Mann (Cora), David Mann (Mr. Brown), Cassi Davis (Aunt Bam), Brandon Black (Tim), and Isha Blaaker (Davi), as well as a guest appearance from Irish actor Brendan O’Carroll, best known for portraying the potty-mouthed matriarch Agnes Brown on stage and in the BBC sitcom Mrs. Brown’s Boys.
