Tyler Perry’s “If Loving You Is Wrong” Returns To OWN
Tyler Perry’s hit drama series “If Loving You is Wrong” will premiere on OWN with all-new episodes on Tuesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT following the season finale of “The Haves and the Have Nots” (9-10 p.m. ET/PT). The series will move to its regular timeslot at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Tuesday, March 22.
In its most recent season, “If Loving You is Wrong” was Tuesday night’s #1 original cable series among women averaging 2.3 million total viewers. It was also Tuesday night’s #1 original series on all of TV among African-American women and total viewers.
In the season premiere of “If Loving You is Wrong,” tensions are at an all time high amongst friends and neighbors, now turned foes. Viewers’ suspicions were confirmed when it was revealed that Alex’s (Amanda Clayton) baby is the product of her affair with neighbor Randal (Eltony Williams). The arrival of the baby ignites a cycle of revenge that will continue throughout the season — angry husband Brad (Aiden Turner) lashes out at Alex by initiating his own extramarital relationship with Randal’s wife Marcie (Heather Hemmens); and adulterous Randal fights with wife Marcie, while planning his own acts of revenge against Brad. Elsewhere in the neighborhood, Esperanza (Zulay Henao) learns of ex Edward’s (Joel Rush) dealings with drug dealers as Edward sets into motion his plan to have killed fellow police officer, Pete (Chris Pipkin).
As the new season unfolds, Randal continues to exact his revenge; Alex endures the wrath of her racist father and the custody of her baby is questioned; and after keeping a deep secret for years, Lushion (Charles “Malik” Whitfield) makes a starting revelation to Natalie (April Parker Jones). Meanwhile, Kelly (Edwina Findley Dickerson) continues her search for love and unusual circumstances once again bring Edward and Julian (Octavio Pizano) face-to-face.
“If Loving You is Wrong” is created, written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry and is produced for OWN by Tyler Perry Studios.
The venture also includes the award-winning digital platform Oprah.com.
