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).

    THIS SHOW IS THE BEST THING TO HIT TELEVISION IN 30 YEARS!!!!! This so is #TooDarnMuch I am reeling after finally getting to see yesterday's show! What a mess! RONICA is the devil, Maggie is Satans sister, and Kathryn is just going to sit there and go with the flow! I can't even believe that they are scheming to have a vicious and dangerous murderer released so he can kill Candace! (...not even remotely concerned about Candace's demise...as it would also be the demise of the show) Jim and David are pure unadulterated evil!!! Hanna has lost it and is once again screaming, Hollaring, crying, begging, singing, and on the ground on her knees AGAIN...please do us ALL a favor and throw her in the h*** with Benny next week...ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! Jeffrey has punked out, Amanda has cracked up, our precious Candace (bless her little heart #teamcandace) is not safe, folks going to jail who shouldn't be going (Hanna), folks getting out of jail who should be staying in jail (Quincy), and folks who should be in jail are not in jail (Wyatt), folks marching in the streets, babies missing, our blood pressures rising, twitter ablaze, rating soaring fans dying a slow weekly death from sheer anticipation, ONE EPISODE LEFT.......Lord where is the bottom? Who can take this?

      Hi Angel, According to Wikipedia, there are two episodes remaining. One episode and then the finality, which airs on the 11th of March. On March 11th, which is the finality and also the tenth episode of the second season. According to JR, there are ten more episodes for the second season. Now when those ten episodes will be shown have yet to be revealed. I just hope they won't keep us waiting toooooo long. Peace....

  • Benny Black In Candice bedroom

    Yesterday's THAHN's was great! To think that I once liked Ms Cryer smh not anymore. Jefferies mother and Ms Cryer and the campaign manager are cold blooded murder's! Pre meditated murder is what I saw yesterday. smh. Candice should be careful, as I think those women are way more evil than her. This house of card's being built by the Cryer's to protect themselves will only come to a crashing end sooner or later. They all need to be in prison. Hanna is going to make the crooked investigator wind up helping her, I know he is on a mission but, Ice can only stay solid for so long next to fire. Hanna again was her own worse enemy, she should have taken the help Ms Cryer offered, she still could have testified at a later time against the Cryer's son, as Mrs Cryer never answered her question. The Judge made his decision because the tax payer's are footing Benny's medical bill, she should have said I have a sponsor who will pay all his medical bill's, smh what a wasted opportunity, but Mrs Cryer had Benny moved before the father could have him removed from life support I think. Babyface lookin ars Jeffery is caught between a rock and a hard place, because he didn't tell his mom to go ahead and do what she gotta, I'll tell them who really did it and that you knew and hid the vehicle. Just some of my thought's on last night. Tonight it's Love thy Neighbor, that show is so funny! We can find out if that no good mother.... took that girl's many or not! lol I can't wait.

  • renee nj

    Yes I totally agree with Lee why why!!! why!!! and why!!

  • Lee

    I have so many questions.....first what is Celine holding over the Cryers...why can't they get rid of her???? How did Tony get custodial rights over Hanna......did they do a DNA test....that did not seem fair to the mom.......and if Hanna loves Benny so much......let the Cryers help....then get them later??????

      I agree as well. Hanna should want what's best for her son. He needs a permanent doctor.

    I love this show so much. I remind me of the days when Dallas first came on and I just had to be home on Friday nights at 9 p.m. Now I find myself racing to get home on Tuesday nights by 9 p.m. Looking forward to the final episode and the next season.

  • Annette Chicago

    I love this show. I just started watching the shows reruns two weeks ago because my other shows didn't have any new episodes. I was hooked right from the start. Tyler you are such a wonderful versatile writer. I love all the characters. You have a way of causing us to hate a character one minute and then sympathize with them the next. I read that there are only 3 episodes left. When does the next season start? I am so hooked. I don't want it to end. Thanks Tyler for sharing your gift with the world.

  • Melissa Virginia

    Mr.Perry, I don't have know how you do it all. I can't stop thinking of whats going to happen next. You did a wonderful job picking the cast for my favorite Television Drama.You have eye candy for everyone out here. I wish it were on every night. I just love Miss Hanna, The whole dang cast, I love them all. You don't understand how some of this Drama is just like a few people I know, and I can just see it all playing out in real life. I smile when I'm right and it's; D*** I should of thought of that, when I'm wrong. You're The Best Mr. Perry. Thanks for making my Tuesday nights the best night of the week for me.

  • MJ FL

    I love, love, LOVE THATHN. I look forward to each episode, I must admit, that the second season by far is my favorite, IT IS THE BOMB!!! I'm sad that there are only two episodes remaining. but at least I know that it's coming back!!! I just hope that the wait won't be too long. Mr. Perry, you are a gifted man and I thank God and Ms Winfrey for allowing you to share your talents with us. Keep up the good work. May God bless you! Peace...

  • Nancy Prillaman United States

    Seriously, in real life can a "father" who had nothing to do with his son now come and demand his son's organs? How horrible if this is true. This show has me on the edge of my seat and has my vote for sure!

  • Michelle Jamaica

    Hanna Young (Crystal Fox), Candace Young (Tika Sumpter), Catherine and Veronica.....you all are superstars. I love the entire casts. Mr. Perry you've done an excellent job. Can't wait to see what the other episodes will be like. I leave work and school early just to go home and relax infront of my television in anticipation to see what Candace is up to. Loooooovvvvvveeeeee you guys a lot. As we would normally say in Jamaica " de ting sell off" mi nah lie da show ya maddd!!! oonu big up oonu self....hugs

  • JR Mississippi

    Ok guys, just got the word for all of you wondering when is THAHN coming back on and with breaks? In an interview, John Schneider confirmed what I already knew: Tyler Perry has already shot 20 episodes (in 18 days) for the 2nd season of the show. MOST LIKELY, the show will go off in two weeks and return in May or June and be back in the fall for the 3rd season. Because the 20 episodes have been shot, I doubt they will wait to the fall to air them. This is very standard for cable shows who order episodes that reach beyond 18 episodes. They air half the season in one part of the year, and the half in the next.
