According to Tyler Perry, Madea will make her final bow in the upcoming film, Tyler Perry’s a Madea Family Funeral, due out in March.

The flick will be the eight film from the Madea franchise and the eleventh time the character has appeared on the big screen.

“We’re gonna say goodbye in ’19,” he said. “I just don’t want to be her age playing her.”

Although Perry insists he will be retiring Madea from the big screen, she won’t disappear all together. He’s planning to take the character on a “farewell” stage tour that will feature a few characters and actors from the films.

Perry also revealed he has no plans to take his talents to Broadway.

“My thing with Broadway is that you got to do the exact same thing every night, the exact same way. That wouldn’t work for me,” he explained. “I’d piss off all the producers. I’d be like, look, we gotta do something different.”
