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 dying to know what that song was that was playing during the hot tub scene!!! Please tell me, does anyone know???

    • Thebrasta USA #2140153

      Did you ever find out the name of the song and who the artist is that was playing when Candace and Oscar were in the hot tub??? I have been trying to find out the name too but have not had any luck.

    All I have to say is that I want moreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love HAHN's so much! I want Veronica to beat Maggie Day into bad health, she has no business telling Veronica's husband anything. She just wants David. Beat her Yass!!!!! I also would like for Kathryn Cryer to stomp the Yhell out of Selene, and I want Wyatt to beat Selene's oldest son until he leaves the show. I guess I want to see everyone fighting. I want to see David show how baaaaad he can be. I do believe that Candice's boyfriend is a plant from either David or Jim???? Yes, Veronica is the Baddest Itch of all times. Tyler I love it. As for the young lady having the baby, let her pack it up and go back to her parents, there's no place for her in either of their worlds. Tyler, again, can we purchase some of the earlier episodes on DVD?

      Martha, if Oscar IS a plant (which I hope he's not), now he has access to Candace's account #!! When he was transferring that $$, he pulled out HIS computer and asked her if she knew her acct. # by heart, she said 'yes' and he gave her his computer to put her acct. # in to make the transfer. He's pretty slick; yeah, the $$ was in there when she checked, but what do you bet the next time she checks, her acct. will be EMPTY! She won't be able to close escrow on the house or anything else! He kept saying, 'I need that $$ back'; if he betrays Candace, I hope she shoots him! *Love your comment about ' beating Maggie Day into bad health' (hilarious)! Someone needs to beat VERONICA into a mental institution; she's gone totally off the rails! And we might just find out how baaaaaaaad David can be, if he and Jim go toe-to-toe! Celine is a waste of time and she & her family need to go, but NOT before they get some revenge on Jim for dissing them so bad. She was stupid to think he actually LOVED her...he just wanted a 'piece on the side' and she was willing!!! Catherine might do more than drag her across the floor by her hair this time, LOL!

    • Martha Herring Goldsboro, NC #2139108

      Lorraine, I do not believe that she gave him her main account number. Remember, that she extorted millions from Jim, however, there did not seem to be money in her account?? That is why he put $500,000. in the account. Candice is very smart and I believe that her trust goes only so far. I really don't think that he has that much money, otherwise he would not have kept reminding her that she had to pay him back.

    • Thebrasta USA #2139116

      In the HAHN finale is when Candace finds out that Oscar has conned her out of her money.

    • lorraine #2139123

      I hope you're right; I guess we'll see! Candace has been spending an awful lot of $$, for her car, her house, Benny's business, his house, etc. I hope she stashed some away for little Q's future! Often, when folks have never had money and come into a lot of it, they go crazy and spend, spend, spend, 'til they have NOTHING left! They don't save or invest, then wonder where all the $$ went! It's sad! I want Candace to have SOMETHING to show for all she's been through, take that Bar Exam and ace it and get a REAL job, so Hannah can get off her back! *It never occurred to me that Oscar may be just 'fronting', using Jim's private jet, etc., but on their NY date, @the theater, the elderly man really seemed to know Oscar and trusted his instincts; again, I guess we'll see. Tyler really put some twists into this season and I love it! Have a great day!

      I agree there was no money in that account,,did you see how candance looked up at him,,if he gets that money it was stupid on her,,think about it ,,earlier he had 25,000 just like that to buy her sex and this 500,000 I bet jim or david gave him a certain amount to work with,,and people are saying david is weak,,but I bet it will come out that something happened to Veronica,,david keep saying they went way back and been through to much,,it should be Katherine that should stand toe to toe with veronica about her son being raped not jim,,,another thing I believe this show will finally end when Katherine cancer comes back,,jim will loose his daughter,,his son to aides and Katherine through cancer,,that would be the have and the havenots,,,he would loose his entire family for his selfishness ,greed and love for sex...only one that I see is honest in this is lannin and Jeffery,,but this is a learning lesson in real life how the rich get over and the poor dirty their way into the rich lifeand how the switch of life is on and how the battle to get back that life...

    • yasmin #2139763

      i am thinking that was her normal account. the other monies are safe and sound. the show is getting better. keep watching.

  • Oneika Los Angeles, CA

    Somebody please help me! I just started watching this show and I'm interested in watching the past seasons any suggestions on where I can purchase them??

  • lorraine

    Love Jim choking the c*** out of Veronica, BUT...also glad to see his doggish behind get exposed on live tv!!! He's a rich, arrogant slob who thinks he can do anything he wants! So he wants the BLACK guard killed but not the white ones; I understand him wanting the professor killed, and even Veronica, since she's such a crazy bully. I assume that was Mama Rose he called to carry out this 'blood bath'; All friendships are going to be blown apart: David & Jim, Katherine & Veronica. I want Q dead; maybe Veronica will do one good thing and 'off him', since she got him out of jail to begin with! Benny will probably be spared this season, since he's already had his life/death storyline; David or Maggie may be killed, but Veronica needs to be carted off to a mental hospital kicking and screaming! Can't wait for these last weeks' episodes! ITA that this season has been totally worth it!!!!

      I'm so excited, I'm on the edge of my seat. The scandal is real... I'm like waiting for the last episode... Now its time for if loving you is right. Another good hit show coming from TP. I'm loving veronica this season, it's the crazy in her. I'm happy that Jeffery found his nuts... I think candise New bow is going to fall for her after he s**** it to her. I thought Catherine was going to leave Jim after the daughter past.. WhY is it that Jim never found out about Catherine cancer..Celine 277 thousand a year guess money can buy people silences, girl please now you care about your kids feelings about not having a dad... Last but not least, I think Quincy is going to die. Can't take anymore regulars. I'm still sad about Amanda being gone.. Thank for good tv.

    I watched the last few episodes of the Have and The Have Not's, and I can see where Candace male friend is headed. He is a con, hired by Judge Cryer to seduce Candace to get his millions of dollars back from Candace wise up, and figure him out? The character of Candace needs to revamp, and try to do the right thing by trusting in God. Do an episode where Candace have to save her mother from Quincy, asking God for help. Have David get his wife some much needed help. Because the viewers who are watching, needs to know that there is help for those who have mental illness. Too, make Catherine's role a little more assertive, especially when it comes to her son. What mother would allow her husband to put their son in prison, just to show him a lesson? In today's society, we have to careful what we write or say, that can led to persons that want to commit suicide. Concern viewer

    • peggy sharp bellamy myrtle beach,sc #2138865

      I love this show,Tyler Perry has done a wonderful job with the show ,I like the older and younger relationship, which reminds me of myself, but people have to accept time has change for all people, Gender,race,same sex marriages. it is hard for people to accept a older woman with a younger man.

    • sp chicago #2139189

      Desperate.lonely,confused is the word,,there is no way it will work with a woman in her 40,s with a 20 yr old..thar is no love but sex,,now if u did this you was missing something in your life...what someone your own age or close..now people get on a date line and 2 ages clide,,it still will be only sex,,youre only admitting you made a mistake cuz dam sure acceptance is not the new thing..

  • Morgan hunter Maryland

    I would like to start by saying i love the haves and the have nots and am looking forward to watching if loving you is wrong can't wait... But i have a question, what is the song playing in the background during the scene by the jucuzzi at candice's new house between Candice and oscar season 4 episode 10. Please help that song keeps playing in my head

    • Ray M Texas #2138897

      I have been wondering the same thing. That song was jamming, so if you find it please pretty please share it.

    • Pam Chicago #2140421

      I, too, have been trying to find that song.

    • janiece chicago #2140686

      everyone keep asking each other about the song playing in background of hot tub scene; but no one is asking Tyler? How about it guys?

  • Sandra Pearson New Jersey

    This was by far the BEST SEASON every! So much drama, but that d*** crazy Veronica needs to pay for all the things she has done to so many of them. There is no way she should get away with the things she had done. Plus her husband's role needs to be step up to deal with her crazy ass. He's to kind for her. I love her mother, but she's just to righteous and not giving her daughter a chance. Plus she depends too much on her son; so unnatural! Get him a girlfriend NOW. Please KILL that crazy a** Quincy too! How in the h*** you keep getting out of jail and not get caught! I feel so bad for Wyatt; that was horrible what Veronica had done to him. I hope he can recover from this. I'm guessing now he doesn't what to tell what he did so he doesn't have to go back. My heart broke for him, but he should tell so his conscious can be clear. Oh what does he do! Thank god the g** son is finally standing up to his unloving Mother. Jim has finally has been exposed; so happy for that......can't wait to see what happens with the next season! Now on to If Loving You is Wrong! OMG you doing it right this time around. Keep bringing us more juicy television drama Tyler!

    • anna Connecticut #2138859

      Veronica is not the only one that has to pay--Really? Candace takes millions by blackmail? Come ON--they all need to pay. I hope they are not getting rid of Veronica by the hit that has been put out on her. They need to get rid of Selena & her crew. I can't stand her part, so stupid. I do agree this was the best season so far. Please don't get rid of Veronica!!!

    • sheila chicago #2139181

      only thing I don't like is when people like veronica,quincy,start acting up the showdoesnt go back to show why they are behaving this way,,veronica said it while jim was choking her that he was to busy having sex,,,and it was so split about whyatt ,,one minute he is so arrogant and talking down about exsposing everyone and he don't care about jail,,jim tried warning him,,,and now that he was raped he still didn't get that if he testified ,,that he would be raped all the time..,,what veronica did was way to much ,,but wyatt got to see what jim was saying,,so go tell now,huh that big dude is still there,,i think since veronica is scared of quincy,,he should be the one to take the battle with her...and that's when Jeffery will come in..tyler did say ,,jefferey will help her..

  • shanita bartlett United States
