House of Payne, which originally ran for 254 episodes on TBS from 2006-2012, returned with what Perry is calling its seventh season. The comedy picks up five years after the end of the events of the original series with retired fire chief Curtis Payne (LaVan Davis) and his wife Ella (Cassi Davis Patton) still navigating the problems of life with their quirky family.
Also returning are stars Lance Gross, Demetria McKinney, China Anne McClain, Larramie “Doc” Shaw, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Allen Payne.

McClain portrays Jazmine Payne, the daughter of CJ and Janine. Jazmine is the apple of her father’s eye. She has faced the challenges of growing up and going to college. She was known to have a sarcastic side and to employ sly plans to get what she wanted as a little girl.
Shaw portrays Malik Payne the eldest son of CJ and Janine. He is smart but has unknowingly become a smaller version of his great-uncle Curtis.
Pulliam portrays Miranda who is married to Calvin, but they have had marriage problems. She is the stepmom to Calvin Jr. and is the mother of baby Christian.
