As we reported here, Tyler Perry‘s 2016 Halloween-inspired hit film, ‘Boo! A Madea’s Halloween,’ grossed a whopping $74 million, making it the second most successful movie of the ‘Madea’ franchise to date (behind 2009’s ‘Madea Goes to Jail’).

 The comedy horror film’s homerun at the box-offce was undoubtedly the inspiration behind the quick turnaround for its follow-up, ‘Boo 2!’ Written, directed, and starring Perry as the lovable, but troublesome lead character, the film is set for an October 20, 2017 theatrical opening.

Fans anxious to see what Madea and co. are serving up this-go-round are invited to view its trailer ahead of its premiere.  View it inside:
