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).

    Hello Tyler I enjoyed the season premiere last Tuesday and this Tuesday episodes. I really hope that Hanna come s and live with Benny. Know it looks like from the preview the grandson is sick. I hope Jeffrey tells the police, because it was self defense. Really shocked about the DA Jennifer didn't know she felt that way about David. Veronica is in for a surprise can,t wait until next Tuesday. Excellent work superb.

    Hello Mr. Perry... I think the characters are great; however, can Jeffrey man up and not seem so spineless. Please keep up the good work as I thank you for having the courage to showcase black actors and actresses in your movies.

      Hey, Jeffrey's getting on my nerves being such a chicken! *Did I see in the previews that War is gonna shove Candy Cane against the wall and accuse her of playing him??? I'm shocked! He digs Candace and I was hoping she'd call him to come help her, since Jeffrey is useless!** Maybe little Q being sick will bring Candace and Hannah together, finally. ***Sooner or later Hannah is gonna have to go live w/Benny, or little Q will be taken from her and put in foster care; she's so stubborn, she's making me mad! A house is a house...and it's already paid for!!! Hannah's pride will be her downfall.

      I don't think that it's pride,she just wants to do the right things so that she can live in peace. Candace has lied to so much in the past that she wants things to be good. I'm hoping that the two of them will be able to have a civil relationship for little Q if nothing else.

    Tyler, love your HAHN series just totally awesome, casts and storylines are great, each season and episode brings something new to the series..Thank you for putting such a gritty all star casts such as this, I commend you on your talent..

    I understand that this is a prime time soap opera, but why not have Jeffrey and candace tellthe Police? It was self defense, instead of having Candice deal with finding a way out of this why not have her focus on getting her cash back.I'm just saying

      Please pardon me if I am just more than a little confused as to why viewers of the Haves And The Have Nots keep describing the Candice character as some sort of heroine to be admired .I am constantly reading comments such as "Candace deserves to get her money back! If I am professing to be a Christian ,then how or why would I defend most of the charactors depicted in this program. The character that Tika Sumter portrays is that of a lying,manipulative ,sociopath. An extortionist and an opportunist. The money that everyone is speaking of is not her money!

    Get Jim out of JAIL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • lorraine #2163925

      WHY????? That lowdown snake...can't stand him! Sick of David being such a flunky for Jim; Jim sure wouldn't think of doing that for him! *Veronica's scared now that she sees that Catherine is not playing around! When she finds out what Veronica had done to Wyatt, she might drag Veronica by the wig across the floor like she did Celine! I'd love to see that!

    I recently discovered this show and was able to watch a few episodes someone else had saved from the first season. How can I catch up on the rest of the first, second and third season?

    My sister and I loved to watch The Haves and The Have Nots. We would get together for a great chat, but after the first year, it didn't come back on the OWN channel in Canadian...we are very disappointed. I would love to see it come back to Canada, we watch everything that you produce...BIG FAN. Blessings for 2016

    One episode, I thought Candace was dead. The gun shot must been fake or had no bullets maybe.
