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).

    my name is Evalin, i was diagnosed with HIV in 2012, and since then my life have never remained the same. I even infected my husband with the virus, until i meant a testimony from a woman about a man called doctor Sunshine. I contacted him and told me about my problem, he told me that i will need to do some things which i did, and after he finished every thing, he told me that i will take the medication for 3 weeks which i did and 4 days ago i went for a test and surprisingly i am now HIV negative, he is also preparing another for my husband, if you need help about this deadly virus contact doctor SUNSHINE via: visit his website on

    I love this show. Friends and I follow it and have plenty of discussions about what twist and turn will take place next. I think Cryer's African American maid is one of the best actresses on the program. The g** thing is a little overdone but not unlike what's going on in society. Candace goes a bit far too but were watching, Don't stop Tyler!

    Hello Mr Perry I'm writing this because I am heart broken. I had been homeless for along time and recently moved to Vegas so I could try and get on my feet. I haven't seen much of your series seen you went to own. I was able to catch last season but can not watch this season because I can't afford cable I'm on disability and my budget won't allow it. Sir will you please put the series on dvd so I can keep up? Have all your dvds plays and movies and none the that are bootleg!!! You are kind of like a big brother to me even though I'm 46. I have always dreamed of making all living for myself with my own talents you keep me pushing even though it looks impossible. If you see this post will you please consider my request? Humbly Lady Ebony

    OMG, the episode that aired on 1/27 had me glued to my seat waiting to see what will happen next. I was loving every minute! It was bold, and in-your-face drama every step of the way. I stayed up just to see it again when it aired at midnight. I'm so looking forward to next Tuesday! Bravo, Mr. Perry!

    I am really getting bored with this show. After waiting so long for it to return one would figure Tyler would come out slamming instead it took 3 weeks for 1 day of events. Benny busting into his mothers room what black man does that. What documents are official with some scribble signature so phony. This dragging on of Jeffrey's sexuality makes one wonder why this is so important to TP. I don't even rush home to watch this mess I record it and when I have nothing to do I play it. He should take notes from the writers of Scandal they came back with a bang last night

    I have to say that I was disappointed with the first couple of shows. it lacked that TP punch. But this week show was Very good. The Facebook chat group I host is excited to find out now that we know Amanda's dead. Or are we wrong as ASSUME, lol. I enjoy giving the group something to think about after we have watched it. I have to say, you do at times put some things that make you go, Hmmm? We are thinking that When Jim gets out, he's going after Candice/Qunicy and her crew. Katherine and Wyatt are going to give Jim pure uncut HELL. And Veronica is going to over play her hand. Benny's accident must have made him lose his mind, because he has lost his respect for his mother. I'm surprised Hanna didn't do one of Marcia's leap (If loving you..) on his butt, lol. Anyway, keep up the good work and check out the group sometime. Join under an made up name.

    Am Karen Tanya from Scotland. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. isobo by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.isobo . So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.lsobo for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.

    January 30, 2015******How can you rule and reign with Me in My kingdom when you cannot rule over your own soul? I have given you the power to overcome the works of the flesh and all the power of the enemy, says the Lord. But, you must exercise that authority in order to be free and effective. Be diligent to do what it takes to walk in liberty of spirit, soul, and body. Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
