A lot of viewers are disappointed with the news that some of their favorite television shows are being canceled even if they are doing well. The question has been asked if "The Haves and the Have Nots" will be cancelled or renewed. The question has been coming up because last season series average only a 0.69 rating in the 18-49 demographic and ended up with only 2.58 million viewers. That was 15 percent down from previous seasons.

Fans of Tyler Perry's series on OWN can breathe easily now because the drama has been renewed. OWN ordered 44 more episodes on January 30, 2017.

The network has not disclosed when the 44 episodes will air.

The uncertainty about how many seasons were renewed is because "The Haves and the Have Nots" is on the mid-season schedule. It is unclear if these new episodes are entirely new seasons or a continuation of the last season.

Sneak peak

There is more evidence that Tyler Perry's popular show will return. This week OWN released a sneak peek of the upcoming show with new episodes premiering on June 20, 2017 at 9 p.m. When the show returns, there will be a lot to catch up on because a lot was going on when Season 4 ended. The finale left fans wondering if Hanna's grandson was killed when War shot up the motel room. That's just one of the main things viewers want to know.

There are several other interesting subplots that people want to see concluded. Veronica has a lot of stories going on with the main one with her son Jeffery. Jeffery himself has a lot of unfinished stories. Candace has more stories than anyone else, and every one of them is something to look forward to.

Tyler Perry promises that the next season will escalate to epic proportions.

What does he mean by that? He probably means he is pulling out all the stops to keep loyal fans watching and perhaps bringing back people who slacked up on watching.

Cancellation of favorites shows

It is fantastic that "The Haves and the Have Nots" is returning because fans are saddened that some of their other favorites are cancelled, especially the shows on NBC.

It was announced last week that "Chicago Fire" was cancelled after only one season even though the ratings weren't that bad. Other NBC shows cancelled for next season include "The Blacklist: Redemption," and "Game of Silence." ABC cancelled Tim Allen's hit sitcom "Last Man Standing" after six seasons even though the show had good ratings.

Mark your calendar for June 20 so you won't miss the return of "The Haves and the Have Nots."
