“I was done with Madea, completely done with it,” Perry said to Variety. “But as I’ve been looking at the state of the world — and I finished a tour in January, just before the pandemic started to break in the country — and the amount of joy and laughter that it brought to so many people, that’s what I think is missing. We need that laughter and that joy.”
“I thought it would just be that one year,” Perry added. “I never thought it would go this long and mean so much to so many.”
