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'm tired of the Amanda going crazy storyline. It's been dragging on waaaaayyyy too long. And it's time for Geoffrey to stand up to his mom. I get Veronica doesn't want to accept her son being gay, but even aside from that I'm really starting to not like her character at all.

      Hardly anybody likes Veronica Harrington due to her snobby wicked nature. She disowned her own child just because he's gay. And don't forget that she plans to put him in the slammer if he doesn't get a girl. TOTAL ABUSE OF MONEY AND POWER.

    Hi Mr. Perry, It's been a long time since I have rushed home to see a TV show, but Tuesday nothing can get in my way. Not a show goes by that I don't enjoy THE HAVES and the HAVE NOTS, but after Amanda performance last night I am nominating her for the CRAY-CARY AWARD, she is really playing her part, as all the other actors. KEEP IT COMING! Thanks!

      Why can't the Cryers fired Celine? They made some agreement! what agreement? What is going on? It does take a long time from week-to-week to get answers.

      Celine has a child for Jim, and I think Coralie is right, it's the newest campaign worker that was with Landon! He and Jim exchanged 'looks' before Jim ran into his office, but Landon caught it! Katheryn knows it, and Celine is using it as a blackmail tool so she she can't be fired; otherwise, she'll tell all their family business! That's what happens when you get too 'familiar' w/the hired help! Jim is nothing but a male w---e, who can't keep his pants zipped! And he has the nerve to judge Candace!? He's gonna get exactly what's coming to him! Katheryn knew what she was getting when she married him; she's just keeping up appearances to save her 'family name'!

      Celine not being fired may explain why she wanted Jim to write her a check that he was delaying getting to her. She kept asking for it and Jim was getting annoyed about it.

    I enjoyed the show last night but I was a little disappointed that you wrote in that Candance baby is dead. I did not like that but over all I love your shows and movies. I am a big fan. I hope that there will be a season 3 and I hope that we do not have to wait until 2015 to see it. Keep up the good work and please do not let Candance baby be dead.

    Please do not get me wrong I like the majority of your work, I am in love with Partrice. I am not understanding why you are not responding to your audience. We love the show it is just to drawn out and a little slow. The hour that you allow us into your world . Entertain us. I I like it when you have us on edge, No every scene can not be like that but at least make them interesting. I am jsut a little disheartned with the baby being dead please let ths be a lie. I just want some more swoon and grab the pearls moments. Is all over all I enjoy just need it to speed up a little.

    Mr Perry, I love this show. I have a problem waiting for the next episode each week, so waiting very long for season 3 will be excruciating. I checked the Wiki on your show and it shows the 3rd season in 2015. Please Please Please tell me we don't have to wait that long for season 3 to begin. I hope it shows 2015 because the date isn't know yet. I hope it's no later than September or October 2014! God Bless.

    Benny is acting just like people act after a coma or brain trauma!!! Their personality usually changes and the become angry, impatient or aggressive due to executive functioning disorder of the frontal lobe!! Benny is doing a GREAT job acting this disorder!!! The show is great!!! We need to view previous episode... Just like Scandal does!
