Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea’s Family Reunion, Meet the Browns, Madea Goes to Jail, I Can Do Bad All by Myself, Madea’s Big Happy Family, Madea’s Witness Protection, A Madea Christmas, and Boo! A Madea Halloween, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween and Family Funeral. According to Tyler Perry, A Madea Family Funeral is the final Madea film. Perry told the Hollywood Reporter that he wanted to move on from the persona that helped make him famous because he wanted to work on other projects.
Perry had a difficult upbringing, but he turned his life around when he began writing and directing plays in Atlanta theatres in the 1990s. I Can Do Bad All by Myself, his first play featuring Madea, debuted in 2000 and was adapted into a film in 2009. Perry, who dresses as an elderly woman to portray Madea, describes her as a blend of his mother and aunt.
Perry’s debut Madea film, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, originated as a stage play. It relates the story of a wealthy couple whose 18th wedding anniversary is approaching when the husband decides to leave his wife. She reacts with the terrible news by fleeing to her grandma Madea’s residence. It was made available in 2005.

The Family Reunion of Madea
Madea’s Family Reunion, released in 2006, was also based on one of Perry’s plays. In the film, Madea assumes custody of defiant adolescents, assists her nieces with marital issues, and simultaneously prepares a family reunion.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself, another 2009 film that began as a play, begins with three teens attempting to loot Madea’s house. She places the wayward children with an aunt who has her own difficulties, and they all learn valuable life lessons.
The Big Happy Family of Madea
Madea’s Big Happy Family premiered in 2011 and centres on Madea’s niece who has a health issue and wants to tell her three children.

The Witness Protection of Madea
Madea’s Witness Protection is a 2012 film about Madea’s nephew, the chief financial officer of a bank who discovers he’s been set up in a mob-related Ponzi scheme. The only option for the nephew is to enrol in the witness protection programme and move in with his aunt in Atlanta.

Throughout the remainder of the film, Madea and her group are required to conceal the reason of death.
