BET has announced that its #1 new original drama series Being Mary Jane season two starring Gabrielle Union will premiere on Tuesday, February 3 from 10-11 p.m. EST. The new season will feature twelve (12) one-hour episodes that will air consecutively every Tuesday night at 10 p.m. with its season finale airing on Tuesday, April 21.
According to the BET press release, the second season of Being Mary Jane will find Mary Jane once again juggling more than she can handle. On the home front, while both of her brothers seem to be getting their lives on the right track, her mother and niece are at war, causing everyone in the family to choose sides. Mary Jane’s career at her cable network takes an interesting turn when she decides to feature more and more stories about the “Black experience.” All the while, she makes a brave decision to try every way possible to conceive a child, just as she is opening her heart to a new man.
Being Mary Jane is created and executive produced by Mara Brock Akil (creator of “Girlfriends” and “The Game;” writer of “Sparkle”); executive produced and directed by Salim Akil (director and producer of “Sparkle” and “Jumping the Broom”). Union is accompanied by veteran actors Richard Roundtree and Margaret Avery and a supporting cast that includes Lisa Vidal, Richard Brooks, Raven Goodwin, B.J. Britt, Aaron D. Spears, Latarsha Rose and Stephen Bishop.
This season also features some pretty cool guest stars including Gary Dourdan, Chris Spencer, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Christina Vidal, Kyle Massey, Thomas Q. Jones and S. Epatha Merkerson.
