Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral is an upcoming American comedy film written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry. It is the eleventh and (supposedly) final installment of the Madea film series, and stars Perry in several roles, including as the titular character, as well as Cassi Davis and Patrice Lovely. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 1, 2019.


A joyous family reunion becomes a hilarious nightmare as Madea and the crew travel to backwoods Georgia, where they find themselves unexpectedly planning a funeral that might unveil unsavory family secrets.[1]



Filming took place at Tyler Perry Studios and Atlanta for one week in 2017. In this movie Tyler Perry plays a new character named Heathrow, Madea and Joe's brother. He was also a Vietnam war veteran.[2]


The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 1, 2019 by Lionsgate. It was originally scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018.[3]

Lionsgate released a trailer for the movie on October 31, 2018.
