Tyler Perry's 'The Haves and the Have Nots' Ends with Season 8 — See Fan Reactions to the News

Tyler Perry hit drama "The Haves and the Have Nots" is coming to an end after the 8th season set to premiere in May, and fans do not know how to feel about this.

Oprah Winfrey Network's long-running Tyler Perry show "The Haves and the Have Nots" is coming to an end this year. The network announced the news in a tweet on January 12. 

Following the midseason finale, the show will return in May for the last time. The network has promised an ending that no one will see coming. After the news got out, fans of the show have been pretty heartbroken. 

FANS REACT

One fan on Twitter pointed out how it is the end of an era. The show debuted on OWN in May 2013. It was one of the network's highest-rated shows and also the first scripted drama. 

Another fan was still in disbelief. They wondered why the network would cancel a show when they know full well how much they love it. "We don’t deserve this," they pleaded

Fans who have been with the show from the very start were distraught. They don't want the show to end after following the lives of the elite Harringtons and Cryers and the working class Young family from the very start. 

The final season promises to serve a big dose of karma to the wealthy residents of Georgia...

SAYING GOODBYE

The show will conclude after 196 episodes. Since Perry's partnership with OWN ended after he signed an overall deal with Viacom CBS in 2019, all his shows have come to an end. 

Oprah Winfrey, who played a big part in bringing "The Haves and the Have Nots" in OWN, applauded Perry's vivid imagination that brought the show to life.

Winfrey referred to Perry as her "big little brother," and as she thanked him and all the cast members for the incredible work with a promise, she will watching alongside them during the final season. 

OWN's president Tina Perry said the show would forever hold a special place in the network's history. She cannot wait for the fans to see the surprises Perry has packed in the final episodes. 

HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT

The final season promises to serve a big dose of karma to Georgia's wealthy residents as Judge Jim Cryer, and his rich pals face the consequences of unchecked personal flaws. 

Actress Angela Robinson, who plays Veronica Harrington on the show, revealed the finale would be an emotional rollercoaster. "You can expect more shootings and more fights, and it will be shocking each week," she said.
