Tyler Perry‘s TBS sitcom House Of Payne has been canceled after five years and seven seasons. The show will be replaced with Perry’s new series For Better Or Worse.
The news of the cancellation comes just a few days after For Better Or Worse was announced.
“Even though it will be sad to say goodbye to House of Payne, I’m really looking forward to exploring new territory with For Better or Worse,” Tyler Perry said in a statement. “Working on House of Payne taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to For Better or Worse.”
For Better For Worse is slated to feature two characters from Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married series of films, Marcus & Angela. There’s no official word yet on whether or not Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith will reprise their roles from the movies on the television series.
