Tyler Perry's House of Payne

Episodes

22 Episodes 2007 - 2008

The second season begins with C.J. (Allen Payne) finding an apartment for his family and moving out of Curtis and Ella's house. But just as the uncle and aunt are settling back into their peaceful home alone, an unexpected event at C.J.'s threatens to change that. After C.J.'s wife Janine (China Anne McClain) is discharged from the rehabilitation center, Ella (Cassie Davie) reluctantly let's her move in, much to C.J.'s annoyance. In a three-part story arc, Curtis (LaVan Davis) and the other firefighters rush to the scene of a burning house only to find C.J.'s life is in danger. Creator Tyler Perry directed every episode of the season.
