‘Being Mary Jane’ Season 2 Announced by BET

Being Mary Jane

The first original scripted drama at BET – Being Mary Jane – just ended its debut season earlier this week and thanks to great ratings the series is coming back for a second season.

The drama, which started out as a two-hour made-for-TV movie on BET, stars Gabrielle Union of ‘Bring It On’ and ‘Deliver Us from Eva’ fame as Mary Jane Paul, a successful cable news personality, who has a messy family and love life. The series was created by Mara Brock Akil (‘The Game’) and directed by her husband Salim Akil.

According to a report at The Los Angeles Times, ‘Being Mary Jane’ has “connected with a loyal core of female viewers and has become one of the network’s most consistent performers”. In fact, the two-hour finale that aired this past Tuesday earned more than 5.8 million viewers.

However, there are no details at this time when the second season will air on BET.
