As we reported here, the season 2 premiere of ‘Tyler Perry’s The Oval’ saw it circled at #1 on cable TV ratings charts last Tuesday (February 16).
To reward its success, BET has already lifted the lid on news the series will be bringing its addictive brand of political drama to screens for a round 3.
A consistent ratings winner across its inaugural season, ‘The Oval’ – despite mass power outages throughout America due to unprecedented winter storms – drew in a whopping 1.5 million collective viewers across BET and BET Her for its season 2 premiere.
Not even a week after landing back on screens, it’s being reported the Tyler Perry-produced venture has been renewed for a season 3.
“The Oval was the No. 1 show for Black viewers in all of television on premiere night among adults 18-49 and 25-54 and total viewers.
Season 3 of Tyler Perry’s The Oval is slated to start production at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta later this year. It joins Tyler Perry’s Sistas, which also recently was renewed for a third season by BET.”
