For the past three seasons, Gabrielle Union has been burning up the airwaves over on BET with her hit show Being Mary Jane. 

The series follows Mary Jane Paul, a broadcast journalist, as she deals with business and personal drama while trying find happiness on her own terms.

Created by Mara Brock Akil, Being Mary Jane is entering its fourth season and like its main character, the show has gone through some changes. Akil left BET and the show for a deal with Warner Bros., and Will Packer signed on as executive producer while Erica Shelton Kodish is the series’ new showrunner. On screen, Mary Jane is leaving Atlanta and taking her talents to New York City for a new job.

The network breaks down what fans can expect on the upcoming season:

When Kara (Lisa Vidal) helps her land a gig as correspondent on Great Day USA, a national morning news show in New York City, Mary Jane Paul makes the move to achieve her lifetime career goal of becoming a national lead anchor. At Great Day, Mary Jane meets her idol, veteran lead anchor Ronda Sales (Valarie Pettiford), and realizes that working closely with your heroes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Things are further complicated when her old nemesis, Justin Talbot (Michael Ealy), appears as a new producer. Along with the new job and city, Mary Jane resolves to start fresh in every way possible, including her love life. She quickly falls for Lee Truitt (Chiké Okonkwo), a successful stand-up comedian from the UK who tests Mary Jane’s preconceived notions about what (or who) she needs in her life. Back in Atlanta, the Patterson’s deal with the fallout from Niecy’s (Raven Goodwin) run-in with the police. With Mary Jane in New York, they grow closer as they realize their new roles within the family and do what they can to step up to the plate for one another.

Sounds juicy, right?

Being Mary Jane returns to BET on Tuesday, January 10 at 9pm.
