Holy crap - this man is unstoppable, isn't he?!

Tyler Perry has reportedly signed a NEW deal with TBS for a THIRD TV show, a dramedy called For Better or Worse, which will reportedly be based on his Why Did I Get Married? franchise!

The series, which will the flick's original castmembers Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith, has been greenlit for 10 episodes, and if the ratings are impressive enough, 90 more will be ordered!

According to TBS, TNT, and TCM's Executive Vice President and Head of Programming Michael Wright:

“Tyler Perry’s series have been tremendously successful for TBS, helping establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers. Given such a remarkable track record, we’re excited for the opportunity to expand our relationship with Tyler Perry and Debmar-Mercury with the new series For Better or Worse.”

Perry continues:

“Even though it will be sad to say goodbye to House of Payne, I’m really looking forward to exploring new territory with For Better or Worse. Working on House of Payne taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to For Better or Worse.”

Here's hoping!

People really LOVE his shows, so we imagine if he just keeps up the good work, he'll have NO problem at all securing those additional 90 episodes!

Best of luck!
