Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network will be seeing more of Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor as they’ve ordered 26 additional episodes to air on the network.
The comedy, which Oprah describes as “not just funny…Tyler Perry funny,” has seen over 1 million viewers since its premiere in May and the additional episodes will bump up the total number of episodes from 26 to 52.
The two-episode season finale of Love Thy Neighbor aired last Wednesday and Perry’s other sitcom, For Better or Worse, will take over its timeslot starting on September 18 with two half hour episodes airing consecutively.
The network has also renewed Perry’s drama, The Haves and the Have Nots, ordering four more episodes in addition to the 16 extra the network added in June. The show saw great success upon it’s premiere, being named the highest-rated series debut back in May.
The new episodes of Love Thy Neighbor are scheduled to premiere in January 2014.
