She’s back! When Gabrielle Union was interviewed back in December, she had the confidence that the show she stars in, ‘Being Mary Jane’ would be back for a second season. And Dwayne Wade’s finance’ was totally correct.

The TV show itself did in fact pull in really strong numbers for BET, averaging just shy of 3 million viewers for each original airing and very respectable 1.3 rating among 18 to 49 year olds.

Fans of the show said it felt less like a season finale and more like a series finale the way plotlines were cleaned up. Some found it dull and wanted more of a cliffhanger, “Scandal style.”

BET’s hour long drama, ‘Being Mary Jane’ was a huge hit and the day after the show finished with 3.2 million views in its season finale, and was immediately renewed.

Recent press releases last week did not state how many episodes but the show will return for production in Atlanta this spring.

Union, acted in the first eight episodes, taped in the spring of 2013, much of it at the EUE Screen Gems. The show was originally called Single Black Female. The series centers on successful talk show host named Mary Jane Paul (played by Union), her professional and private family life, while searching for “Mr. Right.”(www.BET.com)

Some of Gabrielle Union’s other notable roles include her performance in the film Bring It On, Bad Boys II, Deliver Us from Eva, and Cadillac Records. She is currently dating Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade. The actress is nine years Wade’s senior, but the age difference does not matter and the two seem to be making things work through all the issues and drama that seems to arise,’ Being Mary Jane’( Gabrielle Union).
