House of Payne is coming back, again. Tyler Perry has confirmed a revival of the series on BET with the original cast members.
The series original stars LaVan Davis, Cassi Davis Patton, Lance Gross, Demetria McKinney, China Anne McClain, Larramie “Doc” Shaw, Keshia Knight Pulliam and Allen Payne are all set to return.
According to Deadline, the revival is being promoted as a seventh season of the original series. It will pick up five years later, as retired fire chief Curtis Payne (LaVan Davis) and his lovely wife Ella (Cassi Davis Patton) continue to navigate the problems of life with their quirky modern-day family.
House of Payne previously had a one-season spinoff called The Paynes, which aired in 2018 on OWN.
BET has also greenlit another series from Perry starring David Mann and Tamela Mann as their beloved characters Mr. Brown and Cora.
The new comedy, Assisted Living, will star David, Tamela, J. Anthony Brown, Na’im Lynn, Courtney Nichole, Tayler Buck and Alex Henderson.
Here’s a synopsis from Deadline: After losing his job, Jeremy (Na’im Lynn), a patriarch of a young family with teenage children, decides to move to the backwoods of Georgia to help his crazy grandfather. Grandpa Vinny (J. Anthony Brown) has foolishly purchased a terribly run-down home for the elderly and he is in way over his head, but comedy ensues as Mr. Brown (David Mann) and Cora (Tamela Mann) show up at the right time as needy investors.
Both series have begun production at Tyler Perry Studios and are set to premiere on BET this summer.
