Description:

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).

    Ok I've attempted to write you but for some reason my phone won't allow me to continue. I would really like to talk to you. I promise I'm not a stoker. I've even attend church at pastor Allen with Tameka Mann and Kirk Franklin. I just wanted to let my story out to help others. Please contact me if possible. God bless. I felt repelled to contact you because you're down to earth and understand pain. Please give me a chance. Everyone isn't crazy, lol..

    Tyler, you do such a wonderful job on whatever you do but I have to say that "the have and the have nots" is my favorite - everyone is so wonderful in their parts. I can't wait from week to week to see what everyone is up to - it is so nice to sit and watch a show that doesn't curse every breathe.

    Question: Will that girl Jeffery slept with end up pregnant next season. I bet she does, wouldn't that add a twist to Jeffery's life and story line. Isn't Amanada supposed to be pregnant? When is she going to start showing? What's Veronica going to do with Jeffery's car now, that drug head confessed to the killing so Veronica can't blame it on Jeffery now...Plus Jeffery's car was involved in the accident, not Jeffery. Didn't another man say he did the killing during a press conference a couple weeks back...What happened to him? What a shocker to see Jim has another son. Jim Cryer is going down next season.......interesting and can't wait until next weeks finale. Tyler Perry don't wait too long to bring the next season back on...We'll all be waiting. It's gunna be guudd next week.

    Mr. Tyler Perry, I would just like to say that you hit a home run with this TV sitcom. It is one of the best, and it just keeps getting better. The story line is phenomenal. There are so many twist and turns and it keeps you coming back again to find out what is going to happen next. I love this show. And to all the naysayers and haters, if you don't like it, then don't watch it, go back to watching two broke girls, or how I met your momma. It's not often that in this society of corporate world TV that you find a gifted, talented, intelligent and young black man that can put something on TV not just for people of color to relate to and watch, but for anyone who wants to watch it, that has more then just one or two black people in it. Keep doing what you do Tyler, it's a great show.

    I told you! Jim's lookalike junkie got Wyatt off! Boy, Amanda's a really skilled liar and psycho! I'm glad Katheryn is finally showing some backbone to Jim instead of letting him just boss her around. So now Celine's secret is out, the campaign worker is her and Jim's son! I'm SO glad he had the 'stones' to bust Jim, but now Celine's scared she'll lose her job! I was hoping Katheryn would walk in on that scene! It would give her something else to hold over Jim! Next week will be juicy! Someone's gonna get killed: either Quincy or Jim! Either Jim, Benny or Candace will kill Quincy; or Amanda, Candace, or Warlock and his crew will kill Jim! I'm also glad Hannah and Katheryn are still friends. I can't wait for next season!! Lots of loose ends to clear up: Byron, the crooked cop; Wyatt's guilty conscience getting the best of him (and I believe he'll confess eventually); Benny finding out about Tony; Jeffrey finally manning up to Veronica; will David/Veronica make it? Stay tuned!

    Tyler P. I get the shakes waiting between seasons but you do you. Amanda's stabbing the prof. needs resolution - is that buzzard dead or still jogging with a knife in his back? Benny is on the right track with mood swings - brain injuries are like that. Judgey Wudgey - Jim is a piece of work I want him to hook up with earlier mentioned sis in law he shagged MMM what an arc. He's his own worse enemy. Let him find out about Catherine's mastectomy Let's see his humanity what little he has left. Stupid Jeffrey your car NOT YOU was involved in the accidents so you aren't liable No Common Sense. Celine Work it Girl i love her. David Kohls has a Testosterone sale Make a purhase Stand up to Veronica. I may need her Rehab facility til the new season

      You just reminded me of something: unless Veronica wears the pants in the Harrington household, I don't see why David couldn't have set up an account for Jeffrey so he wouldn't have to be under Veronica's thumb! He could buy his OWN d*** car, and let her do whatever w/the other one! You're right, Jeffrey had nothing to do w/the accident; he should have reported his car stolen that night, but since he's so 'sprung' over Wyatt, he couldn't do it, so Veronica has this over his head. All this, and Wyatt doesn't even LOVE him! He would get turned in so fast...but that's just ME! Jeffrey needs to come to his senses and get w/Landon! (I'm sure he will eventually)

      I agree with you. Why does Veronica have all the power in that family. Is the husband a wuss? Can't stand Veronica. She jumps to conclusions. She is going to ruin Jeffrey. Can't stand Jon Cryer....terrible actor. Love/hate Candace. Hates the way she treats her mother. Shocked her baby died ....don't believe the story though....

    Can we just enjoy the show and stop w/the complaints!? I doubt if a major network show would get this much flak! Give Tyler a break! Yes, some of it is predictable, but it's called 'formula tv'! The fun is seeing if your predictions are right! And here's mine for tonight: the junkie that Jim got, is going to pretend that HE's the one who hit Benny and the little girl; Jim picked him b/c he has similar features to Wyatt and could easily be confused by someone who was high, like the little girl's mother was; she was in the crack house w/Wyatt, if you remember. So they'll say she was high and picked the wrong person; it wasn't Wyatt, it was this other guy! **I hope Quincy shows up for dinner @the Cryers...
