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 series but I have to ask the question, why do you have sooooooo many repeated commercials? I realize the commercials pays the bills, but understand when a loyal viewer counts the days before the next showing and so many repeated commercials are shown that is a turnoff. I know others feel the same as I do. Last week there were nine minutes of commercials before the episode began. Thank you for reading my complaint. Teddy Smith

    i really enjoy this show, in fact ' The Haves and The Have Nots' and 'If Loving you is wrong' are 2 of my favorite shows. However, i wish they were viewable online or on demand through cable providers and if so, where can i view the episodes if i miss them ?

  • Kay

    The storylines on this show are unbelieveable. The writing on this show is beyond terrible. I do believe the bad acting is a direct result of the fact that the actors have been given no dialogue to work with. Within an episode there will be at least 4 times where 2 people are conversing and they just repeat what the other has said, or say, 'really' to reinterate. The scenes are WAY too long and drawn out and never go anywhere. Maybe if there were new writers and the show was condensed to 30 minutes, it would be watchable. As it is, not at all. I understand Oprah's loyalty to Tyler Perry, but with all the great shows on television now, TP needs to step up his game on this one.

      Amen! The show is so terrible at this point, he needs to just cancel it, make a movie to tie up all of the loose ends and be done with it!

    Too many commercials, too many storylines, too many unanswered questions. This is leading up to making HAHN a MAJOR FAIL--especially with shows like EMPIRE now on. I believe the entire season has been completed--so PLEASE Tyler at lease drop a line an dlet people know all questions will be answered and all loose strings connected. IMHO the Jim-Candy Cane plot has run it's course and is now over cooked and need to be removed from the stove and thrown in the trash compactor. Where in the continuity in this show??? I will continue to watch and I hope there is a Season 4.

    • angel ny #2055596

      At this point after having never missed an episode, I have a vested interest in seeing it to completion. However, I no longer watch live! It is too frustrating between the slow EVERYTHING and the million commercials! All of this time I have tuned in live to help ratings...but now I just DVR and watch when I get good and ready! It is a d*** shame how he let this show go down!

    I was disappointed in the last 2 episodes. I was looking forward to all the drama and it just hasn't happened yet. Veronica is a stone cold B _ _ ch. There is no way she'd be swinging on me like that. She is the one who drove her husband away, he should have slept with the other woman. The way she treats Jeffrey is insane. He should speak up for himself and let the chips fall where they may then at least she won't be able to run his life. What happened with the gunshot? Did anyone get killed? Did Amanda shoot herself? Maybe when we start seeing Cryers some juicy stuff will start happening again. Bored so far. Pick it up Tyler Perry
