Mo’Nique was gushing with joy as she took to social media to announce she will be filming her very first Netflix stand-up comedy special!

In the clip posted via her official Instagram page, Mo said, “Can y’all believe this sh*t? I done came home to Netflix.”

“Hey y’all, it’s your girl, Mo’Nique. And I’m so excited to share that I’ll be shooting my first Netflix comedy special,” she shared.

She also took the opportunity to announce her forthcoming film with Lee Daniels.

“Oh, and in case you didn’t hear, I’m also reuniting with my friend, my brother director Mr. Lee Daniels on the Netflix film, Deliverance.”

She added, “You won’t wanna miss either of them. So y’all stay tuned, and thank y’all my sweet babies. I love us for real.”

This is a huge victory for Mo’Nique, who filed a lawsuit against the streamer accusing them of discrimination and retaliation when their first attempt at negotiations for a comedy special went terribly sour.

The Oscar-winning actress was insulted when the streamer only offered her $500,000 for a one-hour show that Netflix would have complete control over, including owning the copyright and retaining all audio-only rights.

That was on the heels of the ginormous deals Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock secured for their comedy specials (reportedly $20 million per special.)

In an interview, Mo’Nique said, “I couldn’t accept that low offer because if I did … I couldn’t sleep at night. If I accepted $500,000, what does Tiffany Haddish have coming?”

She continued, “If I accept that, what does the Black female comedian have coming? Because what they’ll say is, ‘Mo’Nique accepted this and she’s got that.’ So what do they have coming?”

This past June, Netflix settled the lawsuit with Mo, but the details of the settlement were not disclosed.

It now appears that the comedy special she wanted all along was a part of the settlement.

The yet-to-be-titled special will be filmed in Atlanta later this year.

Congratulations to Mo for fighting the good fight and being victorious!
