It’s the beginning of the end for If Loving You Is Wrong on OWN. The cable channel has announced that the show has been renewed and the fifth season of the drama series will debut on Tuesday, March 10th, at 10:00 PM. The renewal comes as no surprise as stars of the series have said they’d already filmed episodes beyond season four.
OWN also revealed that there won’t be a sixth season since season five will mark the end of the series. It’s unclear how many episodes are left for If Loving You Is Wrong as the past seasons’ length has been inconsistent, ranging from 42 episodes (season one) to eight episodes (season four). Stars have celebrated filming 100 episodes so the fifth season will have at least 12 installments.
*Update: OWN later changed the fifth season premiere date to March 31, 2020.
