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 truly enjoy watching the HAHN. I love every twist and turn. I look forward to the next season. I have one complaint. I have never seen the conclusion of what happened to the professor. He was staved in a public park by Amanda, stumbled away and never seen or heard from again. What's up with that? Your fans need closure. Please help.

      Also, isn't Amanda pregnant? Wasn't it Amanda's pregnancy test that Jim found that made him think that Candace was pregnant? What happened to that story line?

      Candace made Jim think that she was pregnant. Once the Malones got a hold of her, she told the truth about making up the pregnancy because mama Malone was going to give her an abortion.

    How can viewers see all episodes in seasons 1, 2, and 3 to catch up on the series? Are there plans to make all episodes available for viewing through on Netflix or Comcast OnDemand? E

I use to watch John Schneider on the Dukes of Hazzard back in the day and I must say he is doing a fantastic job playing this ass**** Mr. Cryer! Great job Mr. Schneider! I'm not going to stop watching the show because David went to Maggie. H*** I don't blame him!!! Keep up the good work Mr Perry!

      I agree. Veronica is a terrible mother. She's more concerned about the family image then who her son is. I can't stand her & wish Jeffery would stand up to her once & for all & say "Mom this is who I am, I'm gay" & move on.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible finale. There was way too much going on for it to end like it did. Maybe if there were more content instead of the 4-minute commercial breaks, all of the story lines could have been touched upon. Maybe Tyler should STOP making more and more and more and more sitcoms/tv dramas and develop the HAHN script into something more than one word lines, 3 minute stare downs (Hanna and her baby daddy last week) and commercial filler. Maybe it should just be a 30 minute show since that is all the content that we get anyway.

      AMEN, AMEN, AMEN! I think we would be better served if he just had a Have and Have Nots Movie. That way the fans could sit down for 1.5 to 2 hrs (commercial free) and enjoy the movie! We would get WAY more content than we get tuning in to a weekly series and all of this "suspense" that they seem to think we love so much (WHICH WE DON'T) and all of these hiatuses and network games would be abolished. I would rather see it once a year in a two hour movie than waste my time tuning in weekly and playing these stupid games with Tyler and Oprah! I tell ya....they are gonna fool around and run this show into the ground!!!!!!!! TYLER---DON'T BE A J*** OF ALL TRADES AND M***** OF NONE!!!! Pick something like HAHN and give it your all. What is the point of pissing off your fan base??? What is the point of driving ratings into the ground---then taking a hiatus---and then a whole season to barely reach the previous seasons ratings? Please realize that as much as people love you YOU DO HAVE COMPETITION!!!! SCANDAL, THE NEW SHOW SHONDA RIMES HAS COMING OUT, BEING MARY JANE, ETC. ETC. They don't play games with the faithful fans on those shows! They keep us engaged and wanting more, they CONSISTENTLY BRING IT!!!! They make the shows available on Netflix so new fans can constantly be added to the fan base. I know we always seem like we are fussing and criticizing on here, but you might want to actually listen to the fans!!!! If we didn't care, and we didn't want your shows to succeed, we wouldn't bother to come on here and critique and offer advice and opinions, and we darn sure wouldn't watch. As for the fans who support any old mess just because Tylers name is on it....you guys are part of the problem. As long as you support anything whether it is quality or not....you diminish the need for Tyler and Oprah to step up there game because they think we will all just be here no matter what! NEWSFLASH!!!! WE WON'T!

    Mr. Perry, What did you do ? You know we are learning to leave the old cliche's , but to let David go in that room , you should have made him pass out from too much drinking . I 'm sick and very disgusted with Veronica. How she 's acting like Jeffery must fear her . Knock her but down a whole lot of pegs down , because she's not showing a REAL MOTHER'S love for her son sexual preference , there again lies the cliche' & I would like to see Jim's house of lies & deciet crumble right out from under his own feet . We all know if you make deals with more ruthless devils ( The Maloans) you gotta a dept to them for LIFE and Jim opened that can of worms himself and placed his family he claims to LOVE so much in mortal danger . The Maloans will want that dept PAID . As for Candace He put her through mental H*** , Oh Yes let her have her REVENGE , and none of the kidnappers be caught . Hanna should tell Benny what his SO CALLED Father ( Tony) tried to do to him & and you'd be doing me a favor by getting rid of him . Give & I do mean GIVE JEFFERY the guts to tell that loopy girl Melissa he's G** and stop his mother with her overbearing SNOOTY C*** . Since Maggie dug up Candaces get out of Jail card( Quincy ) , let her dig up Veronica's past and bring it to the light since she's hot for David and as Veronica said tonight " she pays alot of attention to her husband " , we just got Benny BACK , DON'T let he & Quincy face off keep them apart . As Celine I want more of her story we all know who 9 is let's hear more about #4 . NOW FOR AMANDA , KEEP her she play's a GREAT NUTCASE . And Katheryn GIVE HER more fire in fights with Jim . But Here's my question to You Mr. Perry , " Why in the h*** was Jim's SMUG a** in Katheryn's bed ? IF it was me waking up seeing him there I kicked his but OUT OF THAT bed with BOTH FEET !!!!!!!!!!! So in a nut shell

    What in the h*** just happened? You could have given us more. Who is dead? Did crazy kill herself? Come on now I got to wait until January ? I hope that I live to see what happened. Then you send David in the room with the white woman, come on you did not have to do that to David. You have got to come with it some more come January . I love the show and I love your movies . I call The Haves and Have Nots The Black Dallas . Come on now you got to give us more.
