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).

    TP, I love all of your work. However, The Haves and Have Nots is among your best! I watch it every week in Detroit. But I am visiting family in Jacksonville, FL and I missed Episode 10. How can I watch it online? I am anxious to find out what happened.

      Hi You didn't miss episode 10 yet because it hasn't been shown. Episode 10 is the finale which will be shown next Tuesday night. If by chance you missed episode 9, you can see that one next Tuesday either 7 o'clock or 8 o'clock. Peace...

    TP, as many other commenters have said, I am a huge fan of your work. I am not saying this because I want a thank you from the man himself. I am saying that because you have often stated that you listen to your viewers/followers, etc. I happen to know the gentleman who is the arresting officer in the Tuesday, March 11 episode. I know that he deserves a role with some substance. If not in this show, one of your other shows. He isn't going to tell you himself, but the brother is a talented musician. And most of all, he has a good heart and spiritual upbringing. Would love to see him do more in your productions.

    TP, I'm a huge fan of your craft/work, as is my wife, children and grandchildren. You have placed a young man that I know in your season finale. Allow me to be up front/blunt; like we say (in SC), "he comes from good stock." I'm sure you already know how extremely talented he is. Therefore, I want to see the cop that arrested Wyatt in more shows.

    I am a huge Tyler Perry fan. I love everything you do and so do my kids. Honestly my entire family. Now I'm super ecstatic because that handsome cop you have arresting Wyatt is my first cousin. I have sent this finale clip to everyone in my email contacts and phone contacts. I would love to see him in more shows!

  • Sylvia South Carolina

    These episodes are getting better every week! It's like a roller coaster ride with all the twists and turns ! Can't wait for next week. Oh and I am like Melissa. Where did you find that cute police officer at the end of the promo?????

  • Melissa Georgia

    Please solve a dispute regarding last espisode. Is Quincy, Candice baby daddy, played by Alan Payne?

    • lorraine CA #1929806

      No, definitely not! Don't know who that guy is...never seen him before!

    I really love this show, Hanna had me hanging on every word as a mother grieving, great actor . So much emotion in the episode, I like may others expected the judge to rule in favor of Hannah but again no, what judge would do that, Tony did nothing for her son, that part made me sick. I want to see how they spin this with Wyatt's image everywhere, they didn't expect anyone to ID him, and morally Wyatt should come clean and admit what he's done and take responsibility for taking a life and his parents should respect that but of course they are rich and can do what they please, realistically how are they going to get the baby daddy out of jail and he got life, a parole hearing really. Katheryn moved Benny, she's trying to reach Hanna to tell her but she won't accept her call.I think that Candace baby is dead. I want to know what Jim and David going to do now that Hanna played her hand. Just have to tune in next week.
