BET+ Orders Tyler Perry’s Sistas Spin-Off


BET+ and Tyler Perry Studios have greenlit the new drama Tyler Perry’s Zatima, a spin-off from Tyler Perry’s Sistas.

The ten-episode, one-hour series follows Zac (Devale Ellis) and Fatima (Crystal Renee Hayslett) as they navigate the ups and downs of their relationship. Zatima began production at Tyler Perry Studios this week and is slated to premiere on BET+ in 2022.

The announcement of Tyler Perry’s Zatima comes as the Tyler Perry’s Sistas season three finale is set to air on December 22 on BET and BET Her. The finale will be followed by a new episode of The Tyler Perry Show: The Sistas After-Show Edition, giving viewers exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Perry’s hit series and the cast.

“We are continuing to strengthen our investment in quality programming, and our partnership with Tyler Perry has a proven track record of super-serving our audience,” said Scott Mills, BET’s president and CEO. “We look forward to unlocking crossover viewership opportunities between our linear platform and our streaming service with one of our strongest series, Sistas. With Zatima joining our expanding roster of BET+ originals, BET is committed to giving viewers more of the compelling content they love and expect across our platforms.”
