TBS’s Tyler Perry comedy “For Better or Worse” is moving to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, the latter announced Wednesday.

On its new network, the third season will debut in the fall of ’13. The original cast is set to return in their starring roles including Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Crystle Stewart, Kent Faulcon, Kiki Haynes and Jason Olive.  

OWN also has snagged the first two seasons — 45 episodes — of the comedy about three couples, who are at various stages of their relationships.

It’ll be Perry’s third scripted series for OWN; Perry recently signed an exclusive deal with OWN — a co-venture of Oprah’s Harpo and Silver Spring-based Discovery Communications — to create two original series.

The comedy “Love Thy Neighbor” and the ensemble drama “The Haves and the Have Nots” are scheduled to premiere in May, making OWN’s first venture into original scripted fare.

“For Better or Worse” was basic cable’s No. 1 sitcom in 2011 and the No.1 show on all of television with African-American adults.
