Being Mary Jane” is coming back for a fourth season.

The renewal for BET’s hit show was announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., where star Gabrielle Union made a surprise appearance.

Season 4 will head into production this year in Atlanta, BET’s president of programming, Stephen Hill, shared at TCA.

For its third season this fall, in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, “Being Mary Jane” averaged 2.1 million viewers, a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and a 1.1 in adults 18-34. It ranked among the top five scripted cable series in all categories every week it aired.

Created by Mara Brock Akil, “Being Mary Jane” revolves around a successful broadcast journalist Mary Jane Paul (played by Union), and her professional and private life.

The show’s third season wrapped this past December.

Also at BET’s TCA day, Brandy Norwood had a panel for her new sitcom “Zoe Ever After” where she was asked by a reporter if Kobe Bryant, who appeared on her former show “Moesha,” could guest star on the BET series, now that he’s retiring from the NBA — she said she would welcome him at any time with open arms.

Destiny’s Child alum and “Empire” star Kelly Rowland also sat on a BET panel for her unscripted talent search show “Chasing Destiny.”

    Great depiction of the challenges that Black women face in society. We need this show badly.

    Being Mary Jane is a influential, motivational tv series that has impacted a lot of african american females and I’ m sure other nationalities as well, to believe that they are not alone trying to weave through life and love. I myself use it as a tool to motivate me to keep on going. Hopefully this gets to the right person and it helps them understand. Sometimes its not just about drama, altho its so juicy. Its about the message. So I ask the same question as the rest, when will “Being Mary Jane” return?
