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).

    This is my little thought, there is enough problems in this world for people to face , there is only one thing to do and is to think it over and ask the almight to help you through.

    I don't like the character that Veronica or Candice plays, but I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to see the two of them beat the c*** out of each other at some point. Especially if Candice finds out that Veronica called Quicey and told him where to find her. Picture Veronica in Jim's place. LOL!!! I would also love to see Jeffrey grow some b____ and stand up to his mother for once. What kind of a mother has or wants a hood/gangster beating up her son?

      ITA! Sooner or later Candace and Veronica HAVE to throw down...they are both royal b-tches, so it should be an even match! My money's on Candace, although I'm sure 'Ronica's no slouch, either; after all, she IS from the 'hood! That will be some brawl!! *Yes, the whole wimpy Jeffrey thing is way past old; David, too! Veronica's not even that attractive, to be running around like she's all that! David could have done better! She and Jim are both arrogant, rude, and overbearing...no wonder they don't like each other; it takes one to know one!

    just wondering who got shot in the last episode???

    I actually enjoyed last episode, with Candace torturing Jim. It's nice seeing him on the receiving end of being powerless, after acting like he's above everything and anyone. Veronica is so evil, although I don't feel sorry for Maggie, I don't feel sorry for her either. She had a lot of nerve blaming Jeffrey for marriage problems with David, and then sicking Quincy on him. I only feel sorry for both David and Jeffrey, as they both deserve so much better than her. She and Jim are both awful who both deserve to be alone. I liked Hanna and Michael and although I don't want them to have sex, I would like them to date and Hanna doesn't let Benny mess that up. Speaking of Benny, I'm getting tired of him already this season, his angry bossy controlling manner is getting overbearing. I hope Hanna puts him in his place regarding her and Michael, as her love life is none of his business.

      I would like to see Hanna with the detective

    This is the third season TH&HN..and we are left hanging with a real bad case of the cliffhangers!! What happen to Candace becoming a lawyer? What happen to the professor that was stab for raping Amanda? What happen to Mrs. Kryer cancer being revealed? Where is Jeffery new friend that he'd met? What happen to the writers period? I will finish writing all of the characters lines for a small thank you and a little change.!!Now Baby come on with it!!

    The show is great but the plot is so slowwwww. If you drag this out and it end up being 5 episodes, I'm going to be mad. I have waited so long to see this show. Please keep it going, at least 10 episodes like the other shows.

  • Peggy Aaron Alabama

    Don't like Candense having control over Jim, or all that to much sex stuff with her. Get Jim back in control. Please get the suspense back into the show like the very first show.

    Hello Mr. Perry, I love both shows. HAHN is awesome. This season of LTN, it feels like the plot is dragging out over too many weeks of waiting for Madea. Instead of keeping us hanging onto our seat for the next week, it is actually making me not want to watch the show anymore because of the prolonged plot. Each week, we are left hanging and it seems like the show just stops abruptly. I love all of your shows, but this season of LTN is dragging out.

  • Erik Freund USA

    I see there are only 5 episodes in this season of HAHN you need to add more episodes to actually have a season
