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).

    After Jeffrey find out that Wyatt died I hope he blows the lid on Veronica and stop being a victim to her blackmail. I want Jeffrey to go public and reveal Veronica and Maggie strained relationship and why Maggie was killed. I also want Jeffrey to tell all about about Maggie and David relationship that made Veronica jealous to the extend of plotting to have Maggie killed.

      YEAH!!! Its about to be LIT!!! Jeffrey is about to blow his TOP now. There is no way in this green earth I would let anyone control me like Veronica controlling that grown man. Are you really serious????????? He need to bop her over the head, call his father, and tie her up and let her wake up in the Mental Ward. Katherine is my favorite. I really felt her pain when she was told that Wyatt was dead. Excellent ACTRESS.. BRAVO KATHERINE

    Hi Tyler I love the show have and have nots I am sad you are killing off the Cryer children as I belive that could of gone on and been a good plot to the show. Also sad to see Maggie day killed off as that could of been good too. However I belive that the cop and Jeffery should get together and be a power couple or Landon and Jeffrey or make that a triangle it wold be great to see a g** couple on a show. Veronica needs to be put in jail or killed lol. I would like to see Kathryn get more powerful too I love her and she and Hannah need to become friends again. Benny needs to get more roles too.

    Why did the Cryer kids leave.

    • lorraine #2196035

      Because they're not the focus of this show! Jeffrey is the only 'child' that has a major role to play b/c of Veronica! Wyatt and the sister were just props for the plots to move forward! They did their job, now I'm sure they're on to other things!

    I will always be a supporter of Tyler Perry, but I really do not like the direction this show is going. No one is happy, and everything is so dark. I was beginning to like Candy last season because she had a heart and compassion, but now she's back cold and ruthless. I know every show needs an antagonist but where is the protagonist? Everyone is out for self. Please make some characters happy. Thanks.


    i am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today... i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail. i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me. " if you want to get rich quick and be famous" you need to cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found an email address of this great fraternity () so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest... so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $70,000,000.00 to start up our lives.... and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email them now at () or call me on this number +960

    Bravo Tyler! You have out done yourself. Great job to all the actors and actresses you all rock. Keep of up the good work. We are watching every Tuesday night. Can't wait for the next episode.

  • Barbara California

    Why did u let Wyatt die., why are you giving the Cryer's so much grief, but yet allow their money to bring Benny back from the dead...I have decided to stop watching it.Sorry!!!

  • lorraine

    Lots of twists tonight! So Mitch really has a "thing' for Candace and also has some probable Mob connections! He's going to put a 'hit' on War!!! Can't wait to see that! I'm so sick of Veronica and Jeffrey has worked my last nerve acting like a 5 yr old who's so scared of Mommy Dearest! Just kill the wench and be done w/it!!! Melissa is still a trifling little heifer and if she was pregnant, she should be showing by now. I feel bad for Katheryn, BUT...she needs to stop sniveling and begging Hannah to do her dirty work! Jim and she BOTH are responsible for how Wyatt turned out, and yeah, karma's a b-tch, but you do reap what you sow sooner or later! I can't believe War would show up @Benny's w/a 'piece', just waiting for 5:00, so he could shoot him if he doesn't get his $$$! I like War, but this is not going to end well; if there's any delay AT ALL w/Candace, unless Mitch's hit man shows up and shoots War, Benny's as good as dead; unless War changes his mind @the last minute and can't go through with it! This season is going @it early!!!

    • Thebrasta #2196022

      Wondering if Melissa is really pregnant as she looks like she has lost weight. War is such a cutthroat I bet he still shoots Benny after getting the 2 mil. The previews for next week shows Candace sitting in her car crying as I can only think it has to be b/c of Benny. I am rooting for Mitch to be successful in taking War down. Veronica better watch out as Jeffrey is coming after her ESP after tells him he is not a real man and that real man do battle.

  • Shayne S.

    Tonight's episode looks good( just watched the preview) can't wait to see it!

    • Sugapye NJ #2195948

      waiting for 9:00, got me on the edge.

    • Rhonda "AKA SUGARPYE NJ #2195966

      Tonight was good. But a little thrown off. Veronica "the Ice Queen" is doing her stuff. Girl, you are... But Jeffrey I wanted him to give her the what fore.
