Tyler Perry Brings Back Madea to Tackle Social Issues

Tyler Perry is bringing America’s favorite tough-talking grandma back with his new Netflix movie “A Madea Homecoming.”

“Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke with Perry about bringing Madea out of retirement. He said, “I tell you, Billy, the state of the world and everything that’s happening right now, the pandemic, sadness, politics, the division, everybody running to corners grabbing a flag, nobody coming to the middle. So I’m like, ‘What do I have in my toolbox that can make people laugh?’ And Madea’s been the thing that’s worked all this time.”
