Will ‘Being Mary Jane’ Season 5 Happen on BET?
“Being Mary Jane” kicked off its fourth season on Jan 10, 2017 on BET, losing over 46% of its viewing audience, garnering approx. 1.19 million viewers and mixed reviews from the target audience. In spite of this, numerous fans of the drama series are eager to know whether or not we expect “Being Mary Jane” Season 5 on BET, and if this happens, when should we expect its release date? There has been no official announcement of renewal as of yet. But if you don’t want to miss the possible upcoming premiere, you may sign up for our automatic notifications right now, and we’ll keep you informed.
Despite such a serious drop of the viewing audience, we still believe that “Being Mary Jane” Season 5 could take place on BET, relying on the support of fans. However, the statistics of the current season don’t seem to us impressive compared to all the previous seasons of the drama series. Let’s take a look at some important indicators. In general, an overall score of the drama series remains quite high. Currently, according to IMDb, “Being Mary Jane” has a score of 7.7/10 based on approx. 2,500 user votes. At the same time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the drama series has an average score of a mere 2.5 out of 5 and a 50% approval rating among the viewers. On the other hand, the fourth season of “Being Mary Jane” has a score of 4.0 out of 5, based on 19 user votes on Amazon Video.
The premiere of the fourth season has garnered 1.187 million viewers (-46.09% compared to previous season premiere) with a 0.56 demo rating (-39.78%) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “Being Mary Jane” Season 3 averaged a 0.74 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.64 million viewers. Actually, we observe a significant decrease of the viewers. But these figures are still appropriate for a fourth season, given the fact that viewership is tending to decrease from season to season if we regard any television series.
“Being Mary Jane” depicts the ups and downs of a popular TV news anchor, Mary Jane Paul. The series revolves around her personal life and professional career. The TV series is created by Mara Brock Akil, who also serve as executive producer jointly with Salim Akil and Gabrielle Union.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 5)
“Being Mary Jane” Season 4 was launched on Tuesday, Jan 10, 2017 at 9:00 PM ET on BET, and its debut drew 1.187 million viewers, but has received a controversial reception by critics and viewers. BET has yet to announce the decision on renewal or cancellation of the drama series. But despite the serious drop of the viewing audience, we still believe that “Being Mary Jane” has a chance to be renewed for a next season. However, we would like to wait for the official announcement by BET.
