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 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.

      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..

    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.

      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?

    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!

      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

    just when we all think that we know what is going to happen tyler flips it.. Davids role,,wow,,to threaten your best friend after your wife had his son raped...she did all these things and he defends her,,in real life ,,yes love makes u do crazy things,,,Veronica role is SO what we all hate but at the same time is wowed on,,she is so bold....it seems that the innocent is the ones that get burned in this soap,,i can see Jeffery getting aides from wyhatt and giving it to lannin,,I can see Katherine going after veronica about her son,,,,cant wait to see how Katherine approach her,,i can see veronica wanting to teach him a lesson but rape,,she needs her match ,,she is scared of quincy,,,and I do remember Katherine saying she likes quincy ways,,wouldn't surprise me if she get quincy on veronica

    I got a feeling it is not going to end well for the social worker and for Q. Rita Maxwell Quincy sister has summon him to the hospital to get his son back so she can get all her money.


    I love the show all my coworkers talk about it we really hope quincy is knocked off and Candice gets the little boy Mom and daughter come back together and Candice boyfriend really falls for her which we think is working for Jim cause she is starting to trust him and she has been hurt so much love Benny to don't let nothing happen to him.

    Mr. Perry, you have out done yourself with the HAHN, I am on my break and am totally blown away with last night's episode, keep doing your thing!

  • Gerri Houston, TX

    It blows me away to see everybody lying about everything and going out of their way to withhold the truth from the people they supposed to love and care about. There is no trust and truth anywhere in the HAHN! The entire cast is either deceitful, wicked, or self-absorbed. They will do anything to get their way. Landon seem to be the only trueexception so far. But I believe in Karma and can't wait to see what comes around goes around!

    • sp chicago #2139279

      in the real world there is no trust or truth you lie to get out of situtions,you lie to save the day or save someones pain,,,,truth is tomorrow is not promised,,truth is even a minister or nun will do wrong,,,truth is u cant cant no one cuz we all was born to do sin ,,I look at the world like on a plane ,,to trust the pilot to get us to safety,now its a 50 50 chance will make it out of trust or a surgeon 50 50 u will wake up,,so u are in a fantasy world about all this trust and truth...I,m glad tyler is keeping it real he goes to far sometimes like all those thugs on one man,,they don't do that in the hood,,and Veronica would have been seriously hurt by now,,funny how she isbold to get in a mansface like that but is scared of quincy,,scared to stand in the hood to wait for a cab,,,one thing I notice about the hood in the daytime they don't mess with black women,,rape or insult them and that's the truth

    I so addicted to this evening soapra Tyler perry really mad a amazing intense moments on television keeping my eyes fix on the television the whole time it's on , and also maaking me set my televison on record so i dont miss this show and also making CAN wait till it comes on the next week . I just love veronica she is such a good villain, and i appreciate her being a good black woman actor she has no bounders when it's come to what she wants and she don't care how she's going to go by getting what she's focus on. She makes this show heart pounding experience. But i must also say i like candis also but i love they way tyler put together candis and the new man she's seeing i love that he put a interacial couple on his show , but in reality the whole dam cast is awesome?? thats how you supppose to act it's a classy soapra .
