‘Being Mary Jane’ Begins Production On Two-Hour Series Finale

By Posted on 60 1 m read

Fans of BET’s hit drama Being Mary Jane were dissapointed when it was announced that the show would be cancelled.  The Gabrielle Union lead series followed the life of Mary Jane as she navigated her personal and professional worlds which often collided. Although a series ending may not be what viewers want, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

To Every Fan of Being Mary Jane, We have all worked so tirelessly to bring you a show that we could be proud to be a part of. Mary Jane has become my favorite character. We've screwed up together, laughed together, evolved together, and raised hell together. I love all her imperfections, and through playing her I became more forgiving of others who are imperfect and on the journey of self discovery and improvement. We watched her struggle with relationships with both men and women, and we watched her finally start to get her shit together. But the journey isn't over yet. We, as a Being Mary Jane family, cannot wait to bring you this final 2 hour series finale movie that will answer all your questions about each and every character. More than anything, however, we want to thank you with every fiber of our being for faithfully watching the show and supporting our work… from the actors, writers, producers, directors and enormous crew over the years, we are humbled and we remain grateful. Thank you!
