Tyler Perry's House of Payne is a comedy series about a multigenerational, working class family who experiences all of life's struggles with faith, love and most importantly humor. Pops, the uncle and head of the household, has his life and home turned upside down when an unexpected event forces his nephew, CJ, played by Allen Payne, and CJ's kids to move into the house, putting three generations under one roof.

This chaotic living situation takes its toll on cranky Pops, who is reluctant to have his routine disturbed. In addition to CJ's family, Pops and Ella's son, Calvin, a wise-cracking college kid with no money, hangs out at home which makes it impossible for Pops to have any peace and quiet. It soon becomes evident just how wide the generation gap is, as the family tries to find a way to coexist through all of life's hilarious ups and downs.

Putting the family back in family comedy, Tyler Perry's House of Payne tackles real life issues with very funny humor.

    I really love this show but I have a huge issue with two characters. Ella and Jasmine. I'll start with Jasmine. Why is she so disrespectful? Why do you have her act like a Man? Shes not very funny but she tries really hard. When she tries to be funny and she makes that man voice.. I dont get it?? I'm from The real Los Angeles. I have friends from real gangs. They have no education or very little like myself and that's who she reminds me of. Now Ella. In your show. Ella is alway's saying it's my house and talking s*** to Curtis. NOw If Curtis is The fire Chief and pays all the bills and she doesnt work to pay for anything. Now They only have one child and CJ. I wont mention the different story on Cj's background you gave us. First he was Curtis's bro's kid then all of a sudden He's got a white Dad???? Back to Ella. She always has to get her way and its her way or the Highway??? No Real black man is gonna put up with a woman like that. The help center episode when she was demanding That CJ sign and pass her fire inspection. That was b******** The one when Curtis needed her to sign his community service form. She acted like a spoiled little b**** when the shoe was on the other foot. A complete Hypocrite. I dont know a single man that would put up with Ella. I mean if she was a pretty woman and was thinner maybe. A f** woman with a bad attitude that uses God as an excuse...I don't see it. Please excuse my poor typing and punctuation. Other than that I really really love the show.

      Cj was adopted by Curtis brother that later died hence that's why he has a white dad. Second Do you mean Ke Ke the girl in the barber shop? I don't ever remember Jasmine talking in a man voice or representing a gang. Third Ella is a house wife which means her Job is to keep her house in order and maintained it might not bring in a check, but it's just as much work as having a full time job if not more. Seems to me that you need to watch a few re runs or start from the beginning.

    Hello Mr Perry, I love House of Payne , it's a good family show and we miss it. I really hope you decide to bring it back, because there's not too many family shows anymore. Kids need more positive programs to watch like this and Meet The Brown. My kids and I watch the reruns everyday

    Please bring House of Pain back!!!! The ending left me holding on wanting more. That was a great show that a lot of people could relate too. It was funny, interesting and had a lot of real life experiences .

    Please send house of Payne back.it was a very sad ending

    House of Payne probably won't be back. The actors of that show have other projects going on right now. They are probably under contract and unable to spare any time to revive this show. We have to be realistic here. The actors of this show have to keep working and they are not sitting around doing nothing. I think the end of the show was quite interesting more like real life. Every story can't have a happy ending or a resolution. It's time to let this show go an focus on other shows. The Haves and The Have Nots is off to a good start. Time to give that drama a try. The fans can keep on begging and pleading for this show to come back but too much time has passed to revive it. Too bad the revive campaign did not receive enough interest. So in closing if this show comes back that would be great and if it does not then at least we have reruns and other programming to watch offered on OWN. Thanks for the laughs.

    Hello Mr. Perry and Happy New Year! You sent an email out a while ago asking about the House of Payne. Are you bringing it back? I am waiting and would really love it if you did. Thanks
