What Is a List of the Madea Movies in Order?


The Madea movies were released in the following order: 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, Boo! A Madea Halloween, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, and A Madea Family Funeral. According to Madea creator Tyler Perry, A Madea Family Funeral will be the last of the Madea movies. Perry told the Hollywood Reporter that he had other projects he wanted to work on and felt it was time to move on from the character that helped make him famous.  

Perry had a rough upbringing, but he turned his life around when he began writing plays during the 1990s and producing them in Atlanta theaters. His first play featuring Madea was I Can Do Bad All by Myself, which debuted in 2000 and became a film in 2009. Perry, who dresses up like an elderly female to play the character, says Madea is a combination of his own mother and aunt.
