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 was looking at the Have and Have Nots tonight and had trouble with voice and mouth movement not together. I want to know is this a cable issue. I have Charter Cable or Spectrum now. This is the first time this has happen. Looking at the picture with mouth movement and voice catching up later. Reminds me of the old karate movies. What do I need to do the solve this problem. I would like to know is this a cable or programming problem. Thank You George Grooms

    I love this show but I cannot stand Hannah's fake Christian self. She treats Candace like c*** and is wrong to try and take her son. She is a sorry mother to have let her daughter be abused and to baby her grown son. I hope Tyler Perry eventually shows her past because I remember the other maid implied she used to be out there herself. I hope that guy isn't playing Candace. She deserves real love as she's never had it thanks to her mother.

      Why she got to be fake a lot of people has past histories and turn to God to change their ways,,,Candance is a con artist there is nofuture with that child with her...when she looses everything te house goes to...you cant blackmailsomeone for 7 mill and stay in the same town and think things will be fine,,any grandmother would have done this,,,Wow vericonica got wyatt raped,,she is the one that is a bad b******* was shocked ,,tyler wow,,,

      Veronica is pure EVIL and it's time for her to be taken down! If David can't see her true colors now, he's a bigger fool than I thought! Benny has bitten off more than he can chew...he's no match for psycho Veronica! He's weak; Hannah will probably get custody b/c she IS the one who can provide a stable home...however, Candace does have a house (but who knows for how long); as for the job, that's another lie she's gonna get caught in; I'm sure Oscar got a real earful listening to Hannah and Candace going at each other! Little Q is just adorable!!!! I want Big Q in prison for life!!! And as for Jim and the Wyatt thing, I told you Wyatt was going to get raped again and whether Jim was responsible for it or not, it was HIS plan to teach Wyatt a lesson; Katherine will never forgive him and neither will Wyatt! He has gone too far! Of course we all know that psycho Veronica is responsible for pulling some strings of her own around that jail; she got yet another criminal to do her dirty work! I hope she ends up being dragged kicking and screaming to a mental hospital!

      That is so b*** c*** her mother is wrong. Candace deserves her own child and for someone who is a mother to take someone else's child is no good, Tyler give Candace her son please it would not be fair no right for hanna to get him and besides that baby wants his mom

      I want to buy it on dvd, but I can't find it anywhere :(

    • Ciara United States #2133438

      It's like about 50+ episodes that would be costly. A better idea is to record the episodes when Own host a HAHN marathon.

    Tyler Perry you are a genius, me and my husband are glued to this show we watch it every week and actually have debates on who or what is going to happen next, We love love love this show I wish it came on two nights a week talk to Oprah and see if she can make that happen, I'm sure she can and I think everyone would agree with me on that we can't get enough of it.. I love it and I love you your the best and it show's not just with this but with every movie and show that you have ever done.
