For Better or For Worse is a American comedy-drama sitcom based on the two films, Why Did I Get Married? and Why Did I Get Married Too?. It was created by Tyler Perry. It premiered on TBS on November 25, 2011. The second season premiered on Friday, July 13, 2012. It was announced that TBS would not renew the show, as the show was picked for a third season by the Oprah Winfrey Network as part of a new deal the network made with Perry.


For Better Or Worse is a new dramedy that will follow the tumultuous relationship of the lovesick couple. Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White are back to reprise their roles in the half-hour show. Michael plays Marcus, an ex football player turned sports commentator. Tasha Smith will also resume her role as Angela, the edgy and out-spoken wife of Marcus, who is intent on giving him hell every step of the way. The show will also follow the lives of those who Marcus and Angela call their friends. For Better Or Worst is groundbreaking television and is the biggest TV show, movie mogul Tyler Perry has ever produced. The sets, high fashion and the strikingly good looking cast come together to create a truly sexy and provocative half-hour of television.
