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.

    Dear Tyler, you should really think about bringing back House of Payne. There is more story to the family. I dont know if this rumor is true about you wanting to bring back the show with new charactera but I say do everything yoy can to keep the show as is. I know the actor's who play Jasmine and Malik have their own shows on Disney now, but returning as guest or recurring stars would not hurt. The show should continue. There are many arcs that can progress. If it is possible the show can do a time jump. Malik can return home after graduating from college now ready to take on adult life. Jazmine could be getting ready to start high school. C.J. and Janine are now starting over as parents with their now toddler twins Hayden and Jayden who are in school. Curtis and Ella have moved into a bigger house. Calvin could return as a guest star now struggling with the fact that Miranda has left him for good. I always felt that the cast should do a special two hour reunion of their favorite, best , funniest, and shocking moments of the show. This special could have the full cast of Curtis, Ella , Calvin, C.J. , Janine , Malik, Jasmine , Floyd , and Miranda with you as the host.

    Dear Mr. Perry, As an Ethiopian national, I just wanted to express my dismay. But first, the positive. I am a big fan of your work, and friends say I'm Madea in her younger years...lol. Recently, I started watching House of Payne, which I enjoy. Today, I came across the episode "House of Sabotage". I will be the first to point out the many struggles and hardships my countrymen and women face. But I will also be the first to point out that the narrative of "poverty, famine and disease" used in this episode, also in news and elsewhere, is a poor, grossly unbalanced and slightly condenscending characterization of 80 million people and the land they call home. As a student of international affairs, I am acutely aware of the power of narratives, and I was disappointed and saddened that this realization was not present in this episode. I urge consideration when portraying a foreign land that audiences may or may not be encountering for the first time through your work.
