Mo’Nique is back.

The “Queen of Comedy” has returned to Netflix a month after settling with the company for an undisclosed sum. Mo’Nique alleged Netflix low-balled her with an offer of $500K that she wouldn’t have any video or audio copyrights to. Many fans pointed to White comedian Amy Schumer’s reported $11 million deal with the company for her 2017 “Leather Special” for comparison.


“Can you believe this s—?” said Mo’Nique in the promotional video. “I done came on home to Netflix.”

In addition to shooting her first Netflix stand-up special, Mo’Nique will also work with Lee Daniels on the Netflix film The Deliverance. The Daniels’ collaboration was confirmed in April after Mo’Nique and the director ended a 13-year feud, but it wasn’t confirmed that Netflix had acquired the film.


“You won’t want to miss either of them, so y’all stay tuned and thank y’all, my sweet babies,” Mo’Nique said. “I love us, for real.”
