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).

    Has anyone noticed Celine isn't in the new cast picture for Have and Have Nots?Wouldn't everyone love to d** in her past.Has everyone forgotten she called Candace from a private number in season 2.I think a sorryline is missing or need to be written.

    I can't wait for the Haves and the Have Nots to return on June 30th, as my Tuesday nights are void at this time. Mr. Perry you are a great writer, director, producer, and a people person. I love most of your shows and movies, and I was very impressed with the party that was thrown at your home for all of your employees at the end of the season. You and Oprah are the best, and may God continue to bless you both.

    And they wonder why I follow Mr. Perry around...Madea on the Run...He is so creative, and such a "No Non-Sense" person. The waiting for June 230th, 2015 is almost killing me and I'm not in the series. It is so refreshing and alluring to see that all types of people have successfully made this series unforgetable. Now, I love Tyler and he can do no wrong...just don't get burned out.. My prayer are for you and your family, for love peace, and soul..opps..Soul Train..Love, Peace, and continued Happiness. Smoochies...Lena

    I miss Amanda's acting. She played her psychotic episodes quite well. Plus ... I wanted to see what happened to her Professor that raped her.

    This powerful drama has created characters that are unforgettable, due to the energy of the acting. Katheryn Crier, I think leads the cast because she emits such a strong held-back emotional power she is like a dam ready to burst any minute but doesn't quite. Young Jeffrey is probably the most wrenchingly heart breaking character, and Jeffrey's mother manages to offer up one of the most unspeakably evil mothers that I have ever seen on TV but who pulls it off brilliantly opposite her strong empathic understated husband. Certain actors are better than average, like the daughter Amanda, the long suffering wise Hannah, and of course the one-of- a-kind fiendish Candace. The chef was strong. Jim Crier contributes the role of a deeply flawed man who maddeningly , but convincingly holds the story line together. Wyatt is an unsympathetic spoiled son who you'd like to shake hourly. Thank you Tyler Perry and OWN.
