House of Payne: Are Friday’s the Last Episodes? [spoiler]

House of Payne last episodeIn one of last Friday’s episodes of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, titled “God Bless the Paynes,” Calvin (Lance Gross) was shot by the man who’d earlier harassed Miranda (Keshia Knight Pulliam). He’s rushed to the hospital but his fate is unknown.

We’ve received a few emails from readers who believe that next week’s episodes will be the end of the series and the death of Calvin. While House of Payne has been “cancelled,” there are a lot more episodes still to come.

In April 2011, TBS announced that they were ending the venerable sitcom, in part to make way for Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse. At that time, we understood the final episode total for House of Payne to be 220 installments.

In late September, Perry posted on his Facebook page that TBS had ordered 42 more episodes. In December, the cast and crew had a wrap party that celebrated the completion of 254 episodes. It’s unclear if they’ll be going back into production now that the holidays are over but, based on the numbers we have, it seems like they still have at least eight more installments to make.

In the meantime, we do know that this Friday’s episodes of House of Payne aren’t the last. Two new episodes will air each Friday night for the next six weeks. Episodes 223 and 224 will air on February 17th and that will leave about 30 episodes left in the series.

In the meantime, you should know that Calvin does not die from his gunshot wounds. He lives and, at least in the next couple episodes, has to worry about paying his hospital bills because he doesn’t have insurance.

What do you think? Are you a fan of House of Payne? Are you glad to know there are more episodes on the way?

    The final season was astounding , reflecting as my family all sat on the edge our seats when Calvin was shot…each week couldn’t zoom by quick enough to see what Tyler had next in store for us. I know many people live their lives vicariously through television, but House of Payne has been most integral in depicting true daily living, laughter, spirituality, tears, hardships and love. Thanks Tyler for the gift.

    I really enjoyed all 200 plus episodes of the House of Payne. I must say that I am sad to know that such a show which demonstrated life learning events would end with the separation of not just a marriage… but a family as well. Miranda and Calvin never sought counseling to hopefully reconcile there marriage… or will they?

    I cannot believe House of Payne ended the way it did, I am so disappointed. Miranda leaves Calvin? are you kidding. You can take off Meet the Browns and continue additional episodes of House of Payne, PLEASEEEE.
