‘Being Mary Jane’ Returns January 10th + Adds New Cast Members
Good news Being Mary Jane fans, BET has set January 10th as the premiere date for the show’s long-awaited fourth season. As previously reported, the show’s return was up in the air for most of the summer due to dwindling ratings and the departure of show creator Mara Brock Akil.
BET eventually renewed the show in late fall, but put off announcing an air date after their lead actress (Gabrielle Union) filed suit against the network, claiming their revised shooting schedule was a way to cheat her out of previously agreed upon yearly raises.
With all apparently well now behind-the-scenes now, Being Mary Jane is set to return, but as previously reportedly, will look vastly different. Mary Jane will move from Atlanta to New York, and the show will be adding two full-time cast members, including actor Michael Ealy and reality TV star, Cardi B.
