In 2019, actor Gavin Houston said that he was about to start filming the ninth season of The Haves and the Have Nots. OWN has been mum about the show’s future and, in 2017, creator Tyler Perry signed a deal to produce 90 episodes of television for ViacomCBS outlets (including BET) so that’s been keeping him very busy.
