The show picks up where Why Did I Get Married? characters Marcus (Michael Jai White) and Angela (Tasha Smith) left off: in a tumultuous marriage. They, along with two other couples, navigate through 21st century dating and relationships as best they know how.
“Tyler Perry’s shows have proven to be a popular draw for TBS on Friday nights,” said Michael Wright, TNT and TBS’ head of original programming. “We’re very happy to keep that trend going by ordering more episodes of Tyler Perry’s For Better Or Worse.”
Despite having a tracking lower than Perry’s other series House of Payne and Meet The Browns, For Better Or Worse is still the No. 1 sitcom on basic cable and the No. 1 show on television with African-American adults. The show, produced by Tyler Perry Studios, brought in 2.9 million viewers during its premiere and more than one million in its first season.
For Better Or Worse will return this summer in its regular Friday night time slot.
