In 2016 we had a wave of new TV shows displaying the versatility and raw talent of black actors, and although she isn’t one of our new characters, Mary Jane Paul is still in the forefront when considering favorite TV personalities. Well she’s back ready to hit the airwaves for a new season on primetime. BET is dishing out the 4th season of Being Mary Jane with a premiere on January 10th at 10 pm, but there will be some significant changes on the show on and off camera. There are still some things that are unclear when it comes to how MJ will navigate her life in a new city without her family being by her side, but I’ve manage to gather a few things to keep the fans informed.

has served as creator and executive producer along with her husband Salem Akil, but last August the two signed a deal with Warner Brothers TV and will be focusing their attention on that. Akil Productions will still have executive producer credit but have added Packer Productions along for the ride. No need to worry, Packer has some great work under his belt. His most recent TV work was the ABC series Uncle Buck and the Roots miniseries, and he’s produced a plethora number 1 films such as Almost Christmas, Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Takers and many more.
This bit of information has fans in total confusion considering MJ’s hometown of Atlanta has been a humongous part of the show while she juggles her personal and family life.
Apparently MJ is in for a great surprise when she realizes Justin will be her new producer, we are sure this will provide some of those epic rants from her that we love so much. But what will happen with Kara? I guess we will have to wait to see.
