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 am loving the show can't miss not one show. You have put the crazy to shame, and I love the sophisticated crazy you have give Veronica. Not to mention the great twist and the spin you have put on the show to keep us on edge until the next show. Keep up the good work CAG is watching you.

    LOve LoVe LovE the show, but Ms. Hanna is REALLY starting work a nerve, she cry TOO merch (as Kandie Buruss antie would say... too MERCH). Its time to chill her out a little and make her smarter at finding out what she is thinking.

    This seasons show was off the hook. I have enjoyed every Tuesday and I hate to see it leave. Happy Birthday . Your Mom is always looking after you. Can not wait to see If Loving You is Wrong I am sure it is off the hook also.

    I love this show. Each week I hope the episode never ends, and when it does I know it will be another 7 days before the next one. All of Tyler Perry's Georgia Film shows and movies are so enjoyable. Thank you Tyler Perry.

    If Tyler Perry is a born again Christian, why is promoting homosexuality, affairs, rape and other filthy trash. I am SO disappointed in his testimony before the Lord and I know his sitcoms are not pleasing to God. He is supposed to be different - a light in a dark world and he has missed the mark. His drama is worse than any other drama out there. Oh! and the actin if awful. they guy who plays David is a zombie! I will not be returning to the show.

    • SP CHICAGO #2141874

      WELL take your a** on then,,,you got a problem with reality then,,,and there are many davids out there that love to the end,,,hesaid they went through to much for her to end up this way,,tyler is holding back onthat,,,so move your lala land on

    • dwayne va #2142185

      You know Tyler Perry his shows is always about the life which we live in. He is not promting but some peoplle are g** and some parent doesn't care and some does. It just the way the life we live in

  • Thebrasta USA

    @Lorraine I was thinking that Candace may choose Love over Money for a chance to become Oscar partner n crime. Imagine what the two of them can accomplish conning others. Kinda like Bonnie and Clyde escapades. By the way are you a fan of If loving you is wrong and Empire.

    • Rebecca Weaver Antelope, CA #2141731

      Yes, fan of Empire, Have & Have Nots, If Loving You Is Wrong. Between OWN and Lifetime Networks, hopefully they will add many more shows.

    • Thebrasta USA #2141939

      @Rebecca Thats great now I will be looking forward to your comments from both TV Shows. If Loving You Is Not site is worse than this site with all of the voodoo. Just wish people would not abuse this site with the crazy fortune teller jardon.

    • lorraine #2142378

      Thebraska, I don't usually scroll past the first page of the comments b/c half of them are all that voodoo mess! It's irritating! I just happened to run across this post; yes, I do like ILYIW, I just started watching the last part of last season. I like Lushon, the Black cop the best, and his woman. I HATE Eddie, the other dirty cop, Randall, and Alex; the others I haven't formed an opinion about yet, but the sister w/the too- young- for-her boyfriend needs to send him packing ...she ought to know better!

  • evangeline walker
