Description:

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).

    I would love to see the first season of THATHN. I haven't had the pleasure of seeing it and jumped onto the show at the second season. I absolutely love the show, however I'm missing so many pieces of the puzzle because of this. Is that possible?

    Greetings! Oops, sorry about that. So the season finale of The Haves And The Have Nots is tomorrow, right? With all due respect Mr. Perry and Ms Winfrey, why must the fans of the beloved THATHN have to wait until god only knows when in 2015 before we can watch the new season of THATHN? Why, why, WHY must you make the fans wait that long, especially when the ratings are at their highest ever!!! Need I remind YOU and Ms Winfrey that THATHN gave you your FIRST profit!!! In my humble opinion, you are going to lose a BIG portion of your audience...AND THEN WHAT, HUH???!!!??? Peace,,,MJ

    when I first saw you on television I said to myself......"how long will this guy last." I kept up with show after show and started too realize that your films and plays taught me more about my cultural history than what I would have ever expected. Your life lesson too me is "Never doubt the power of one's Will" Thank you!
