It is really hard to say goodbye to any show, especially when you’re watching it for the past few years and didn’t get answers to all of your questions in the end. The same thing is happening with the fans of THAHN, especially when they watched its eighth season’s finale a few days back. As a result, now they’re demanding the makers to renew the series for The Haves and Have Nots Season 9. So, will it ever happen? Here is everything to know.
The Haves and Have Nots is an American crime drama and soap opera TV series. It is an adaptation of Tyler Perry’s 2011 play of the same title. THAHN is the very first scripted show of OWN, and it created history after making its debut on May 28, 2013. It became an instant hit and won a lot of awards and nominations throughout its run of eight years. The most recent eighth installment of this crime drama recently concluded on July 20, 2021.
The Haves And Have Nots Season 9: Renewal Status!
Tyler Perry, the creator of this show, revealed that the eighth season of this soap opera would be its final one even before its premiere. The network also advertised the last episode of the eighth season as the series finale. So, at present, it seems like the makers do not have any intention to renew The Haves and Have Nots Season 9. However, the fans of the series are not satisfied with the ending they got. They invested a total of 196 hours in HAHN, and in the end, they didn’t get answers to many of their questions.
According to the viewers, there are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied before the series could conclude. As a result, they want Tyler Perry and the network to renew the show for another installment and provide a satisfactory ending to them. The current status of this show is ‘canceled,’ but it might change in the near future if the heavy demand from the fans could be able to reverse it.
Why Won’t THAHN Return?
There are several reasons why the makers decided to make the eighth season of THAHN its final one. The main reason behind this is the consistent drop in the ratings of the series. It is very rare for a scripted show to last more than 4-5 installments. But this one ran for a total of eight seasons. Although, for the past few seasons, its ratings were going down continuously.
Also, Tyler Perry’s contract with OWN expired back in 2019. Currently, he is working with BET and BET+. He is busy with the new productions, and without him, it is impossible to create The Haves and Have Nots Season 9. OWN is still ready to work with him on a non-exclusive basis. However, Tyler already bid his farewell to both the network and THAHN. Therefore, now it is very unlikely that he will ever return to create the ninth installment of THAHN.
The Haves And Have Nots Season 9: Release Date
As previously mentioned, the crime drama will likely not return for another run. But somehow, if fans could manage to convince Tyler for the ninth installment, then according to the release pattern of the series, The Haves and Have Nots Season 9 might return in the second or third quarter of 2022.
