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).

    Tyler, I enjoy The Haves and the Have Nots very much. I do think sometimes the writing is way over the top. I'm getting use to it. :) I am not happy with Candice not having air time this season. What's up with that? Candice is the show!!! Is something going on between you and Tiki? Is it more money? If so, GIVE IT TO HER, SHE DESERVES IT!!!!! :) I really don't want to see Wyatt get away with killing the little girl and I don't want to see Veronica's husband sleep with that campaign manager!!!! Please let him be a decent Black Man, Please!!!! Why are the Cryer's, Veronica and Hannah treating their grown sons like little boys, they are Men!!!!!!! I really get irritated with that. I hope Candice is alive. Looking forward to Tuesday. BRING IT ON!!!

    I look forward to see what Candace is up to, Candace can't die please don't let it end like that for Candace, she need to survive this so she can see that Jim pay for the cover up he's doing for his Son because Hanna not going to be strong like Candace can. Benny need his Sister.

    ALL I GOT TO SAY IS IF THEY KILLED CANDACE THE SHOW WILL BE LESS INTERESTING TO ME BECAUSE THE REASON WHY I WATCH THE SHOW IS BECAUSE OF HER AND HOW SHE BLACKMAILS JIM

    Hannah and Lizzie's grandfather look good together! Yes, Jim is really smug these days, thinking he's got it all under control...well, Candace, Benny, and Hannah will have a lot to say about that! I'm thinking he hired that junkie to go after Lizzie's mother, since she's a junkie, too! Veronica may have 'sprung' Quincy out of prison to 'handle' Candace, but the tables are going to be turned when he finds out the real deal behind all of this! He and Candace will end up back together and maybe we'll find out what happened to the baby (I think it's dead)! Maggie, the campaign manager is about to get 'handled' by Veronica next week, and David, too!! As for Jeffrey, he will go RUNNING to Landon after being w/that girl! He'll finally 'own' who he is and tell Veronica to back off or lose her son for good!
