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 drama "The Haves and the Have Nots" because Mr. Tyler Perry inspired me to be a director of playwright, television drama and comedy shows when I grow up. So Thank You, Mr. Perry. #HAHN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm cutting ties with this show Tyler Perry just move the storylines to slow these people have been in jail since the new season started and with the same clothes which said the show is still on the first day along with what's happening with candance and I fine that the other show If Loving You Is Wrong is doing the same thing and I talk to other people that say the exact thing if the show changes I will tune back in but for now I good nite to both shows.

      I agree it does appear these are being dragged out far too long and it seems unnecessary I too am looking to start opting out story is good but the pace needs to be picked up that is what will keep people

    Hannah as always pisses me off with her stubborn ways. ooh these last three esisodes make me mad. Why didn't she call 911 at the motel. That day was her last day at the motel, check out is at 11am. When Q was hot the night before that's when she should have took him to the hospital or call Benny. She was right of course about the house, and that it's evil but could have took that opportunity while she figure out where her and Q is going to live. Veronica, need to get hers, I can't wait till Katherine finds out. David I love him, I am curious about his story why is he so sexy and calm like that? Now Beeny is accessory to murder and Quincy sister is on her way. Maybe War need to take her out for Candace sake even if he is mad at her. It time for Jeffry to put his big boy draws on now that he stood up to his mother. It's not going to be pretty.

    • lorraine #2168051

      I agree w/you! And besides, Benny's house is PAID FOR IN FULL!!! It can't be taken away, so they'll always have a place to stay; Hannah may not like the way Candace got the $$$ but that's a moot point, now; she has 2 choices: stay w/Benny in a safe environment for little Q, or be on the street and get the baby taken from her! With Catherine in jail, she can't even work! It's time for her to swallow her pride and move in w/Benny! I hope War does take out Quita and they finally get rid of Q's body AND hers!

  • Michele Delva Sparks, NV

    WOO HOO !!!!!! I am sooooooooo glad you are going to bring back Oscar! Love that guy, and he should be hooked up with Candace again. Can't wait to see what's in store for Oscar to do next..........Yeah!!!!!!

  • Carolyn Phoenix, Arizona

    Tyler...Oh My GOD! last night was CRAZY! Tyler...why didn't Hanna call 911? She could have saved her money. I was wondering when or if Candy was ever going to find out that Jeffrey knew who hit her brother and almost killed his FINE ASS...Ooops...LOL, but now his "Cougar"-Veronica is locked up and he is not going to have his "lawyer- in -a -pocket" to help him out anymore...LOL And Candy Cane has broken Warlock's heart...wait til her finds out her a** is still LYING...she had 7 Mil. NOT 4 Mil when she paid hin $400,000.00 ...Boy oh Boy. Her mother said it right! She CAN'T tell the truth about NOTHIN! He is going to have to Pimp her out to get his money. WHAT A GREAT EPISODE. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK...LOVE YA!

    • lorraine #2167736

      She got $7 mil from Jim, but she told War she only had $400k and she gave HIM $150k! If you can, go back and listen to their conversation again. That's why he feels so cheated!!! And out of that 7, she spent over 3 mil on the houses and Benny's business; OSCAR took the remaining $4mil she had, plus her own $50k she had in the bank and left her w/ZERO!! I'm glad he's back so he can get his real payback from her! I think War loves Candy too much to actually kill her, but I guess we'll see! Candace needs to tell him everything, so when Oscar shows up again, War can handle it!!! And I agree, Hannah should have called 911; waiting on a bus???? REALLY?? She's unbelievable!!

    Jeffrey protected Candace twice and went through h*** trying to protect her and he does deserve credit and he need his breaks. He even needs to get away from it all and have a vacation or move away. But for him to turn against her and blame her for every disaster in his life is very betraying. He can't blame her for everything. Yes, Candace does have her faults,but she has innocents as well as guilts. She allowed him to stay with her and Amanda in their apartment when his mom kick him out. And she didn't charge or pimp him out. Candace stood up for Jeffrey even when Jeffrey wasn't around his parents, and she told David to grow some balls and defend his son in front of his wife. She told David to call Jeffrey and check on his son when she sense that his life was endanger. She even stood up for him twice in front of Veronica: one time in the Sarandon hotel and the other at Jeffrey's apartment. She is the one who told Jeffrey to stand up to Veronica many times. She offer him money when he didn't have any money and his mom canceled all his credit cards, although he didn't accept it. She even encourage him a whole lot when he was down and out. She help him get out of having sex with Melissa at the Sarandon hotel and expose Melissa for her motives of pregnancy. Candace even help Jeffrey find out if Melissa is pregnant. She even offer Jeffrey a room in her house because Melissa was now living in Jeffrey's apartment until he got on his feet. I like the way Jeffrey is standing up to his mama, and not forget the way his mama treated him. But he doesn't need forget the positive things Candace did for him and her testimony of struggling to survive. If Jeffrey don't like her bad decisions why don't he go out his way to help her make good decisions that will help her live her big dreams?

    • Runette philadelphia #2167744

      I am starting to believe that Jeffrey has more of his mother's traits in him than David's. I know Veronica has been horrible to him, but he is expressing pure hatred towards her & is seeking revenge against her. That is the way Veronica behaves towards those she feels have betrayed her. Me thinks Jeffrey is no choir boy.

    • Tina Meredith Mississippi #2167898

      Veronica feels betrayed because Jeffrey came out of the closet and told her that he is gay. Whether anyone agree or disagree with his decision, every parent must face the reality that children have to grow up and live a life of their own otherwise they are not living true adulthood. Yes there are consequences for decisions but parents can't control their children when they become adults otherwise the parent mind as well be charged for false imprisonment or their adult child may choose to get a restraining order against them. Veronica must realize she can only control Veronica and nobody else.

    This season is a bit boring. Last season was ROCKING and even ended with the POWER!!! I agree about the communication between the characters so many wasted WORDS. Okay, we get it MOVE ON. To wait all week to see a show with so many commercial breaks equaling to 25 minutes of air time I expect to see something. How many times did Candance repeat to Jeffery the same words to Jeffrey hitting him in the chest and in the back. Hinting to him that he is involved. How many days have this KILLER been waiting in Veronica house? How many days have they been in JAIL? Is this just one day? One Hour? This is like the longest day of their lives... How many days Quincy dead in the floor? Candance went to sleep with the body in the floor? No one seems phased this body in the floor but Jeffrey. Now benny moving the body. the hold cast will soon be in JAIL but Hannah. Hannah gets the little boy out the bed with fever all over him. And he got dressed and they went out to take a taxi. Ahhhhh...No bathroom, wash his face... sweat pouring down his face... uhhhh toothbrush?? Anyway I love you Tyler just some criticism

  • MizMax Compton, CA

    I'm like so many, totally hooked on this show! My reason for comments today is regarding program information on TWC for OWN. It airs on channel 1355 for HD or channel 173 non-HD in my city. Felt like 'twilight zone' moment last night and last week! Since when did H&HN start showing [HD1355]@ 6:00PM Pacific Time? Additionally the information for NEXT week's show read out last night; advising the 'original air-date' was 1-19-2016!! The same scenerio occurred last week. There's too many screw ups who else should I question? I know for sure, last season previous air time for your show had been 9:00PM - But on Direct TV on @ 6:00PM [would watch early over a family member's house] Is the dilemma my switching over from OWN 173 to HD1355 - I don't believe that OWN originally aired in HD in our area or possibly TWC didn't advise of HD channel after acquired by OWN. Final comment we've had HDTV since 2007

    • lorraine #2167737

      I have DISH and I watch it @6 Pacific, but it comes on again @9 also in case I miss it earlier; in between 6 & 9, they show repeat episodes for those who didn't get to see them before.

If Loving You Is Wrong - Tuesdays @ 9/8c on OWN
