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?

    Please bring House of Payne back. Each character /person shows exceptional day to day talent/behaviour. Nrver met Mr. Perry but would love to one day. Saw a tape of him and his mother introducing Madea five or six years ago. I saw his mom in the audience and fell in love with her. Something about her beautiful spirit glows on her son. Mr. Perry I hope you bring back more joyful “pain.”

    Please don’t take House of Payne away. If you must take a TP show off the air take For better or Worse off the air. Don’t end the show leaving us wondering about Calvin and Miranda.

    I really like this show. I really would hate to see it cancelled, especially leaving the fans hanging on for Calvin and Miranda. For better or worse should be cancelled if they wanted to cancel a TP Production that is…

    Tyler Perry’s House of Pain MUST go on with New Epoisodes…… I believe the final one was Miranda walking out stating she wants a divorce OMG my heart went out to Calvin and for Miranda saying that to him was not right….. Yes he did somethings wrong but who is perfect NO ONE…… I am going to pray every night that we will see many many many Eposiodes to show in the near future…….. TBS Please rethink I believe if you can keep this show going and Good Ratings will come out of it………

    We finally get a clean and cut sit com that I enjoy watching weekly and it is going to end…Tyler Perry kept it real…it would have been great if he could have kept both sitcom’s going however if I had to choose ….House of pain would be the one definately…….

    I have enjoyed House of Payne and all of it’s many roads inwhich the show has traveled. Offering Christ to many, giving hope to the hopeless, tickling senior citizens, and encouraging men, women, boys and girls alike even in crisis situations. Thank you Mr. Perry and Thank you to the cast and crew of Houe of Payne. YOU HEARD ME!

    I am so sad and angered to see a great show with a great cast cancelled. I really feel America was wronged by ending this show. The show show great ways to deal with family issues, stress, financial strain, and how family’s can support each other through these times. I really hope TBS rethinks their decision. I would rush to the TV on Fridays just to watch both episodes. This was a show the entire family can watch.
