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).

    So unrealistic. Jim is attacked and no one called the police? Jim, a judge and candidate for governor, and this mansion has no security? Even Quincy climbing into bed with Veronica was unrealistic. Please get rid of the crazy Amanda. What does Veronica have on her son? The fact that Wyatt was driving his car? How does that put Jeffrey in jeopardy? Is she going To allege that he is an accessory to the crime? This whole story line involving this maid is so far fetched.

      Maggie, I do not think it is unrealistic for the Cryers not to call the police. Jim has enemies on the police force due to Wyatt, and the family is accustomed to covering up their misdeeds. Jim was probably planning something evil for Quincy before he was kidnapped.

    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.

    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 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.
