Tyler Perry is sunsetting his most popular characters of all time: Madea.
In an interview with Bevy Smith on her SiriusXM show, he revealed Madea will be getting her final performance soon in Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral.

He also plans on doing a stage tour after the film with actors and characters from the original films to truly commemorate her.
“This is it,” Perry said. “It’s time for me to kill that old b***h. I’m tired! We’re gonna say goodbye in ’19. I just don’t want to be her age playing her.”
Welp. There it is.
