From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    Hi, I just started watching this show because I wanted to watch it from the beginning of the first season. Where can I watch it? I have xfinity and began watching it on demand but it was taken away. Help! I love this show!

    • HappyToHelp MD #2183373

      you can watch this and many other shows at projectfreetv.im Be careful of the bugs and pop ups though. I suggest good anti-virus software. I watch there for free whenever I miss an episode on TV or after the semester is over! happy watching!

  • Marilyn Pompano Beach, Florida

    I really enjoy this show as it is "a thrill a minute" and I had been looking forward to Tuesday nights I am anxiously awaiting its return

  • Yosheka Georgia

    I have missed the first and second season of the haves and have nots and if loving you is wrong is there a way I can purchase the seasons I missed

    • Mayra Sacramento, CA #2182765

      Just wondering if Mr. Perry responds to all the inquires regarding whether or not viewers can get past shows on DVD or any other way. Seems kind of rude not to know if it is possible considering that so many people do ask. I have never seen an answer or response from him online or anywhere else. With all of the repeated commercials that are run on OWN you would think that it would be mentioned.

  • MJ Texas

    It took awhile for me to get into #HAHN because at first the acting was so BAD. I am happy I stuck with it, because the acting has improved (still has room for improvement), but the story line is the bomb. Worst actors - Jeffrey, Benny, Wyatt and Quincy's sister (where on earth did they find her???). Best - Candace, Veronica, Jim, Katherine. Middle of the road - Hannah and David. I predicted Amanda would be the one to leave the show when that happened. Jeffrey, Benny and Wyatt are improving, it's not painful to watch them anymore. Again, the plot rocks! I agree that the seasons are way too short. Either I missed the finale or clearly didn't know it was the finale. Me and some friends kept waiting for it??? I say get rid of one of the other shows - none of which I watch - and focus more on this one. Lastly, why aren't the most recent past episodes available ON DEMAND? Is that an OWN issue?

    • AB #2182222

      You can watch HAHN (including the finale) on-demand with the OWN app avaible on iPhone + Android. Just go on Oprah.com/own and the details are at the top of page.

    • Gretchen Ft.Pierce,Fl #2183973

      Certainly did! I haven't missed 1 episode. of course Candace made Jeffrey out to be the bad guy but he freaked and ran. Had trouble driving Quincy's car because it was a s**** shift!!

    • GRETCHEN CLAY Ft.Pierce,Fl #2183975

      didn't know I messed up on the word s**** shift

    I love all of your work. Well, I don't like "The Manns Family". Sorry...it's just not funny. Maybe its for the kids. But I love everything else. My favorite is "If Lovin' You is Wrong". Oh my goodness! I also love "The Haves and The Have Nots", but the g** stuff really makes me want to change the channel, but I get the age we are in. But that doesn't mean I have to agree. Thank you for all your work. I love the madness of your mind. Lol One question: When are you going to start your own "Netflix" that is geared towards us? Streaming movies for us. They are missing way too many movies of ours. I see that just from watching Bounce TV. Just an avenue to generate money without too much effort. I'd drop them in a heartbeat! Thank you for sharing your art. Love you for it. Wishing you nothing but joy, peace and love.

    This series really brought me back to soap opera days like it was before Reality Tv came in and gained so many followers. Unfortunately I do not have cable right now. That's why I would love to be able to get this show on DVD. The writing is just good and it keeps me wanting more.


    I love this show. The story is a thrill a minute and I only wish there were more episodes and can't wait for the next season. The cast is superb. I have been a fan of Crystal Fox since she was on In The Heat of the Night. The others were unknown to me but they are so professional. Love all of them (even when they are mean).
