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 am a TP/OW fan and that's why I tuned in for HAHN series premier. I stayed tuned in week after grueling week hoping beyond hope that the poor level of production was simply a glitch that no one behind the scenes noticed. Surely the lighting, the script, the music, etc., would begin to show signs of life and rise to a level of quality viewing. Well finally, beginning with season 4, life found a way! Thank you to all of the wonderful actors who sacrificed their reputations to hang in there! HAHN is now a must-see in my book. Yes, suspend any need for realism relative to law and order. This is soap to the max and I'm lovin' it! SOMEONE took a page out of Shonda's playbook. Hang on to your hats for January, 2016. Thank you TP and OW - HAHN has risen!

      Hi! I couldn't agree with you more! Ever since THATN finale on Sept., 22 I've been so totally lost!! But, we have only 42 days to go AND I CAN'T WAIT!!! Next season, there is going to be a lot of friction between Candace and Hanna over the custody of that precious little boy Q. Hanna, you need to work on your relationship with your daughter. Yes, Candace has her flaws and faults! But guess what, Hanna, you have faults and flaws. For you to be a Christian, you are so judgmental of Candace. I bet you. have a lot of skeletons in your closet! Love your daughter because of and like her in spite of. Peace...MJ

    Wassup Mr. Tyler Perry & cast of "The Haves and The Have Nots", you guys are doing an outstanding job with this television show. Im just curious as to do you guys ever think this will ever be a regular hour long Monday thru Friday soap opera. it would take the place of shows such as the bold and the beautiful and the young and the restless.
