What Caused Nilda Lavoe’s Death? – 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! Boo 2, Madea Halloween!
A Madea Halloween and Family Funeral. Tyler Perry, the creator of Madea, claims that A Madea Family Funeral will be the final instalment in the Madea film series. Perry told the Hollywood Reporter that he wanted to move on from the character 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 producing 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 combination of his mother and aunt.
Perry’s first Madea film, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, originated as a stage play. It tells the story of a wealthy couple whose 18th wedding anniversary is approaching when the husband decides to leave his wife. She deals with the shocking news by fleeing to her grandmother Madea’s house. 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 guardianship of defiant teenagers, assists her nieces with relationship issues, and simultaneously plans a family reunion.

Meet the Browns (2008) was also based on a play by Perry. It is the story of a Chicago-based single mother who travels to Atlanta for her father’s funeral and discovers an eccentric family she never knew she had. Madea appears in a cameo role in the film.

I Can Be Negative All By Myself
I Can Do Bad All By Myself, another 2009 film that began as a play, begins with three teenagers attempting to rob Madea’s house. She places the delinquent children with an aunt who has her own problems, and they all learn valuable life lessons.
The Big Happy Family of Madea
Madea’s Big Happy Family premiered in 2011 and focuses on Madea’s niece who has a health issue and wants to tell her three children. Madea attempts to bring her three children together because they are too preoccupied with their own lives to pay her much attention. This film was also adapted from a play by Perry.
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.

A Family Funeral for Madea
The 2019 film A Madea Family Funeral, according to Perry, will be the last time the character appears on the big screen.

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