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 the show, but with my work schedule I miss the airing on Tuesday nights. I then have to stay up 2am-3am in order to catch the show, I just wish you also made the show available online as well. It truly is one of my favorite shows.

    Tyler Perry is a genius! I can't wait for the next season to start! This is the best "soap opera" I've seen in years!

      I totally agree with all of you, love The Haves and Have Nots--♡♡♡

  • Jessica O'conner

    When does the next season come on. I am obsessed with the show. The seasons are way to short.

  • Leatha

    I don't like the way you got Candice mother going after her and the way you let David let Ocsar take her money. That don't make sense to me.

      I loved how this season ended. Tyler I was one of those people that wanted Oscar to be the love of Candace life, but you had something better for us. People always on Candace but you show us two different men one who taunted her Oscar the last night what a acting job he did he became a repulsive human being who lack compassion. and Quincy a thug that wanted to take her life but with the help of Jeffrey they both defended their lives and save each other. My the Cryers and the Harringtons did not look like happy campers. I can not wait for David to find out that there is a picture of his wife having sex with Candace's 23 year old brother. Just think he had the nerve to ask Oscar/ Brandon about the sex with Candace. Ha Ha. I hope we see Melissa and Jeffrey's story come center stage next season I wonder how she will feel about the Harringtons once the luster comes off. c

    I am a newbie to this series. I was wondering if there is a way to watch previous seasons maybe at another time, channel, or online. Please let me know so I can catch up. Much appreciated.

    I absolutely positively LOVE The Haves and the Have Nots! I am sad about Oscar but I did have a feeling he was hired to get the money back. I really liked Oscar and he played his part with finesse! I am looking forward to watching Season 6. This is the ONLY show that me and my husband watch together. The actors are great and I am in love with the JUDGE CRYER!! I LOVE HIS STANDARD LINE --- I CAN HANDLE IT! Can't wait for the next season.

    I first came across this show in 2012 0r 2013. I was surfing through channels and came across THAHN. I thought I would watch and see what it was about. I was instantly hooked! What an explosive, mind blowing show it is! Tyler Perry has so many great shows and talent. I am going through THAHN withdrawals. Have to wait until January? NOOOO!! It's too long. I hope this show is on for a long time. I crave for Tuesdays! LOL! This show is soooo sinful and delicious! Keep it going! Awesome! :)

  • Kaniea Napper Chicago

    I soooooooo love this show. It is everything. Every episode I'm excited and always wanting more. I think they should give my boy Tyler a Oscar for that!

      He had them kill the officer that let the guy in Wyatt's cell, the guy that raped Wyatt, and the professor that raped his daughter, and it was someone waiting for Veronica to get home. But unfortunately so won't be going home.

  • Terry San Antonio

    Who is the person that Jim Cryer hired to kill? Is it Oscar? Jim said kill them all and save Veronica for last. Who all does Jim want dead? I wish we fans didn't have to wait til Jan 2016 to find out. This is my favorite must see show.

      He wanted the Police Officer at the Jail killed, The Professor that raped his daughter and saving Veronica for last is because she openly admitted to having her some raped while in prison by someone she knew
