The Haves and The Have Nots aired its season finale on Tuesday, July 20th but it seems that fans are not ready to say goodbye. Many wonder if the show is cancelled or renewed.
Created and produced by Tyler Perry, HAHN was the first scripted show to air on OWN.
The crime drama series follows three families, the Cryers, the Harringtons, and the Youngs, and was inspired from a 2011 play of the same name.
After fans watched the dramatic finale, many have been left asking if the show will return for season 9.
The Haves and The Have Nots: Season finale
The show aired its season finale on July 20th, 2021.
The final episode of season 8 wasn’t what viewers expected to see as the series revealed who made it alive and who not.
We won’t spoil the ending for you, so you’d better go and watch it for yourself.
But here’s what we know about a potential season 9.
Season 9: Renewed or cancelled?
Unfortunately, The Haves and The Have Nots hasn’t been renewed for a ninth season.
Due to lower ratings and Perry’s contract with OWN expiring in 2019, it’s very unlikely that the show will get the green light for another series.
In an Instagram video, Tyler Perry referred to the finale as the “final show” so it’s clear that he doesn’t currently have an intention to continue the show.
Tina Perry, president of OWN said: “We are so grateful to Tyler Perry, the amazing cast and everyone at Tyler Perry Studios for eight incredible years of making ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’ one of the biggest hits on cable television of the last decade. The series will forever hold its place in history as the network’s first ever scripted drama for which we are so proud. We can’t wait for fans to see the juicy storylines Tyler has planned for the final episodes.”
While the chances for season 9 are very slim at the moment, fans can reunite with the cast during the show’s two-part reunion.
The first one airs on July 27th and the second part on August 3rd.
Have a look what Tyler’s thoughts on the season 8 finale are.
Fans call for a new season or a spin-off
While it’s very early days, some fans have called for another season or a spin-off series in the near future.
“Mr Perry, please, PLEASE have a spin off to Haves and Have nots. It’s not fair to get us hooked and then take it away. Please. I can’t get enough. This show keeps me going. Love it!!! Thank you for the years,” tweeted one person.
“The ending of The Haves and The Have Nots made me soooo upset!!! So many questions didn’t get answered!!” said another fan.
Meanwhile, another fan said of the ending: “I enjoyed The Haves and The Have Nots TV series but my personal opinion the ending was a bit weak.”
