In BET’s new promo for the upcoming second season of “Being Mary Jane” we get a glimpse at the first episode where Mary Jane is throwing a dinner party that quickly takes a turn for the worse.
The show’s creator, Mara Brock Akil, said in a recent interview the second season would tackle a lot of tough issues, including “what’s going on with our people in this country.”
Along with this nation’s drug and race problem, Mara said fans can expect the show, which makes its return on February 3, to deal head on with several real life events which have taken place over the past year.
Mara goes on to call season two a “game changer,” saying they (the writers) listen very closely to their fans on social media and are happy to have such a loyal following.
As for news on a possible “Girlfriends” film, Akil says whether the movie gets made or not is a total “business decision” and that before she can move forward she would have to “get rights” and that at the moment she is not writing or doing anything in the relation to the project.
