The drama will conclude with a 2-hour movie in 2019.

One month following the fourth-season finale of Being Mary Jane, it is being reported that a fifth season will not be in the cards for the veteran drama. BET, though, has stated that a proper series finale is being filmed which will air as a two-hour TV movie sometime in 2019.
The Gabrielle Union-led series, which follows a prominent television news anchor trying to juggle her life, her career, and her commitment to her family, has enjoyed a successful run on the cable network since its 2013 premiere. Over the course of its run, the show has been a top-rated scripted cable series among African American viewers aged 18-49.
Season 4 was the series' first without creator and showrunner Mara Brock Akil, who departed the show in May after signing an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television. Erica Shelton Kodish took over the showrunning duties for Season 4, which at 20 episodes was its biggest yet. While no official reason was given for today's cancellation, the show's viewership was seeing considerable dips in Season 4, most-notably in the second half.
Look for the 2-hour series finale of Being Mary Jane in 2019.
