Dear Being Mary Jane fans, hold on to your seats! We have learned that BET’s signature Drama series starring Gabriel Union will come to an end.
BET has ordered a 2 hour movie which will serve as the series season finale which will air in 2018.
The series which started back in 2013 drawing nearly 4 million viewers has been a hit and continued on its path to greatness to turn into what it has become today.
According to Deadline:
The decision to go with a movie in lieu of a fifth-season pickup comes three weeks after Being Mary Jane‘s Season 4 finale aired on Sept. 19. Union, who stars as successful TV news anchor Mary Jane Paul, is set to return for the finale. It is unclear yet who else from the cast will be back, with the movie’s producing team also TBD. For the first three seasons, Being Mary Jane was run by creator Mara Brock Akil who, along with her husband/fellow Being Mary Jane executive producer Salim Akil, left last year for an overall deal at Warner Bros. TV. (They remained as exec producers.) Erica Shelton Kodish, who served as showrunner on the supersized, 20-episode Season 4, which she executive produced alongside fellow new addition Will Packer, recently departed for an overall deal at CBS TV Studios.
