'If Loving You Is Wrong' Ending With Season 5 (2 weeks ago)
OWN announced today that Tyler Perry's If Loving You Is Wrong will be concluding its run after its upcoming fifth season. The news comes just over a month ahead of its now-final season premiere, which airs March 10.
The primetime soap opera has been on the air since 2014 and has tallied a total of 90 episodes to-date.

From the 1940s to modern times, the biographical drama follows the romances, rivalries, and personal intrigues that occurred throughout the decades, helping shape the later years of the 20th century.
