Union took to Instagram recently to reveal that filming for “Being Mary Jane” is underway in Atlanta.

“Tomorrow will be the 1st day of filming for the series finale movie of #BeingMaryJane I wanted to approach this opportunity with fresh eyes and an open heart,” she wrote. “I wanted different for Mary Jane and realized I had to make different decisions for myself. In order to give my all to Mary Jane, I had to give my all in my own life. I wanted different, better, more… so I proceeded to do exactly that…different shit for a different outcome and damnit do I feel golden. Gonna enjoy Mary Jane until it’s time for the next. Thanks for joining me on this ride. Love & Light good people.”

Fans were disappointed when BET announced that “Being Mary Jane” will not return for a fifth season — but will instead end its run with a two-hour series finale film.

An air date has yet to be announced.

  1. I am really going to miss this show I have been watching from the very beginning. Gabrielle Union is one of my favorites actresses I hope both MJ and Kara get happy endings. The flavor of the show changed when they moved it to NYC, messed with the parent’s relationship, and brought on all of the extra characters!
