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).

    OMG...this is the best weekly series drama on TV. I don't usually watch these kinds of shows, but I am hooked! Wish there was not so much down time between seasons. I think this is Tylers best show on OWN!!!

      Hello tyler, I love the Haves and the Have Nots!!!!I can hardly wait for it to return on 1/6/15. I never watch day time soaps, however, I fell in love with "Dallas" and have every show up until JR died and I will watch every episode of the Haves and Have Nots as they are aired. Will you ever put the 1st and 2nd seasons on DVD so that I can buy them to add to my collection? Please do, I'm sure that there are others who would like to buy them. Thank you for all you do, may God be with you and congratulations on becoming a new father!

    I do not understand how you can take a 1/2 year break? I will forget all about your show by Jan...you have lost the momentum and audience ---- stupid move if you want continued success!

    I love tylers "the haves and the have nots" and unless you are writting the story and its your book you need to leave him alone i love his stories especially the haves and the have nots. Tyler you keep up the awesome writting those that tell you what to do well lets just say hey "who is getting the f** check for the show " so with that being said this means that if one person dont like the way he handles his writting dont watch cause there is more that loves his work the way he writes it so leave my tyler alone he has got this writting so you dont like the way he writes it dont watch theres more watching that not .

    January, 2015???? Seriously???? What in the world is going on??? How can you keep your fan base with such a lengthy space between the seasons?

    • MJ FL #2010577

      Hi! I couldn't agree with you more! My sentiments exactly!

    Absolutely love this show but am disappointed that it takes so long in between seasons. I guess I'm just being impatient, and will have to wait patiently like everyone else. I would like to see more Benny now that he's "up and about". . . . .I adore Hannah, she's a phenomenal actress - she knows how to "pull" the emotion out of ya. . . .but I do love Benny, he's cute, talented and I like the fact that he's an "up and coming" star. Of course who doesn't like John Schneider, my favorite from the Dukes of Hazzard. . .Anyhow, thank you Mr. Perry for the story lines. . .
