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 love the show i truely do bt i feel like veronica needs to die simple. She is beginning to be the person i could hate in real life. Another thing is how is war going to think candance sat him up with the drugs? I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg this season i cant wait to see more.

      War will think Candy Cane is capable of anything.. I see this drama dragging out for a long time. I hate she did not give him enough money the first time so we could be done with him. Sorry , I just do not like his character.

  • Carmen Irving Huntsville

    Candice, Veronica Harrington and Bennie are the true stars of this GREAT Show even though all of the characters are good. Right now Veronica's character is being so cruel to everyone that it's just of matter of time before someone kills her. Please tone her down a bit so she won't destroy her son and push her husband to divorce. I was praying after Maggie was out of the way, maybe the Harringtons would grow closer. It hurts to see Candice cry even though she has done dirt to many. Please do not let her lose her and Bennie's house and tow shop. Glad to see War go down! Please don't ever let him out again. He is too cruel and he needs to be put away for life. Love the show! Keep up the good work!

      Please bring Wyatt back, they can not loose both there children. This has to a mistake, he can not die.

  • Please bring Wyatt character back! We don't

    Please rewrite the script to show it was a mistaken and now show his parents that they all three need each other & this opportunity will show them the true meaning of family loving each other, to assist each, not pass judgement, showing compassion, & empathy! Finally that family s**** together through the good & bad times!

    I really think the season finale should be that the Crier's finds out they have a daughter (that is homeless which is the identical twin of their daughter) and Mr. Crier see her roaming the streets and think he is having a breakdown and will have to be put in a mental ward until someone prove him right. This identical twin was separated at birth and she was taken by someone from the hospital who raised her in an abusive situation so she ran away and is now homeless. She will have issues, and the Crier's will bring her to live with them. I have a lot of ideas, but Mr. Perry you can carry it from there.

    • ANNA THOMAS #2197232

      Maybe this will bring Jim Crier closer to his illegitimate children he had with the maid. Since all of his biological children are now dead.

      I guess it will be WAR BABY

  • Sina

    Mr. T. Perry, how are you doing? I knew Wyatt was not going to be the deceased man on the bed. Yay! His mom and dad would be more broken they lost him, especially after losing their daughter several episodes ago. I was truly going to reach out to ask you to please change your mind about killing Wyatt, because he is a victim of circumstance, due to his parents negligence. I enjoy watching your skillful writings and I anticipate what you will do next with your thathn characters! Thank you

  • Gail South Carolin

    I hope you read these comments!! Here's what you should do. Let someone s**** that knife deeper in Veronica. Put her in a coma until next season. When she comes to, her husband is married and Jeffery has a happy life. Kill war in a shootout on the way to jail. He is too nasty. Get him off the show. I don't know what to do with Candice! Oh yeah, bring Wyatt back.

  • Claricia Lakeland

    Y'all know wyhatt not dead it's a setup because previously episode he suppose to be hidden from his parents cause he is a creditable witness against them I just caught that after tonight show but if he is alive that will definitely take away from the ratings he need to be dead.

    • Doolie Dallas #2197251

      Exactly!!!! The final episode "The Fugitive" is a sure indicator that Wyatt isn't dead. However, "The Wolf" -War and Jim will probably team up to scheme against Candace. And this "Tragic Assumption" is only going to make Katheryn go over the edge after she hears new information about Wyatt. Maybe even go after the DA... as she so explicitly stated, "she would kill her in the street if anything were to happened to him..." Veronica on the other hand, shows signs of being a psychopathic individual. And Hannah has to stop crying a river and start kicking butt... beginning with Veronica, then Candace... by the way, what happen to the love that was coming into her life? She needs a little bit right now!!! LEMONADE, please!!!

    • lorraine #2197255

      Where are you getting these episode titles and info?? Is there someplace where you can read ahead what the episodes are going to be about? Some people don't like 'spoilers' (knowing what's coming) and want to be surprised! So 'if' you think you know something the rest of us don't, then don't spoil it for us! Thank you!

    • Shelly #2197300

      He better be dead

    • cityoflaurel Maryland #2197430

      Veronica had something to do with Wyatt's death I bet. She told Jeffrey that his father's bytch is dead and that Jeffrey's bytch (Wyatt) is dead. She may have paid someone to give him a lot of drugs to overdose. She wanted them both out of the picture. She wanted Jeffrey to marry that girl and to do that is to get Wyatt out of way so that Jeffrey can stop wanting him. Veronica did not like Maggie and planned her murder too.

  • lorraine

    Well, hallelujah! Jeffrey finally got even w/that wretched witch Veronica!!! Mother or not, the kind of torture she continues to put him through b/c she's so demented, is just awful to watch! Even Katherine was shocked to see how she treats Jeffrey. NOW...Mitch is going to get Candace killed b/c War thinks SHE set him up; I figured either the money would have a die pack in it and explode in War's face, or the cops would pull him over, and sure enough, they did! I know Mitch meant well, but he really should have kept his n*** out of it! And Wyatt IS dead! If they change it to have him alive, I'LL STOP WATCHING b/c that's totally phony! He consumed way too many drugs to still be alive! Time for DA Kallison to get hers, and Katherine will see to it!

    • Shelly Haves and have nots #2197302

      Amen to tell resurrection of Wyatt. That would be the worst and take WAR too

  • James

    I'm assuming tonight's episode was a joke. It was absolutely awful. Obviously, Wyatt isn't dead. However, these episodes this season have been so poorly written, who cares if he is alive or dead. This show has gone from enjoyable to downright nauseating. Usually when a show takes such a sharp change in direction, the creativity is starting to die. At this rate, the show will have very little shelf life left. Great job, Tyler!! Ugh!

    • cityoflaurel Maryland #2198327

      James. Keep negative comments out of here please, it's getting a little OLD. If you can't type nice things in here, just stay OUT and don't come back. But have a nice day!

  • tina South Carolina

    When this series started it was a lot of fun to watch. I waited for it every Tuesday night, however it has become about every kind of evil, every kind of filth and garbage that can be portrayed on the screen. I thought the writers be it Tyler Perry or his staff were really talented but this kind of writing shows no talent or creativity of any kind. Don't waste your time watching. You can see all of this on cinamaX

    • Shelly HAHN #2197116

      THANK YOU TYLER ....BRAVO!!!!!!!! EVIL CAN NOT WIN.!!! WAR DEALT WITH AND THAT WICKED NUT JOB VERONICA. YOU TRIED JEFFREY - she provoked you to wrath. thank you, Now Tyler let Veronica s*** into a coma and do not resusicatate!!!!!!

    Do you guy read? Wyatt is not dead, he's presumed dead (assumed, supposed)... He's "on the lam." Also, Katheryn will find out new information in the episodes ahead about Wyatt "A Tragic Assumption." And, Jim will probably team up with Warlock to take Candace down. Spell bound...!!!

    • lorraine #2197127

      And just where do YOU get your information?! Are you one of the writers? I doubt it! How can Wyatt be 'on the lam'? GMAB! He consumed so many drugs, if anything, he's in a coma and should be brain dead! I choose to believe he's dead until I SEE otherwise!
