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 show. The story is a thrill a minute and I only wish there were more episodes and can't wait for the next season. The cast is superb. I have been a fan of Crystal Fox since she was on In The Heat of the Night. The others were unknown to me but they are so professional. Love all of them (even when they are mean).

      It would be hilarious if Veronica got pregnant from Benny, and Blondie got pregnant from David. Lol!!!

    The past season of "The Haves and the Have Nots" left me cringing - too much blood and guts. I have watched from the beginning , but this was the worst. I do not know what is coming, but without improvement, I will have to leave the show. I always enjoyed the show, but not this past season.

      I totally agree. I've waited foe each season and haven't missed an episode however this last season had me scratching my head. Just who does Tyler Perry have writing this mess? Are they ALL on crack. So done.

    Mr. Perry I love your work and this show is definitely one of my favorites. Will you consider putting this show on dvd? My husband and I are both military serving overseas and we missed this last season. I know soap operas are not normally put on dvd but hopefully you will consider making an exception. Thanks for all you and God bless.

    Tyler Perry, I am just crazy about you. You are definitely an inspirations to many of us and I thank you very much for all the laughs, as well as all that you've given of yourself to others is truly a blessing. Will you consider putting all the seasons of The Haves and the Have Nots on DVD for purchase. A lot of us would appreciate that very much! I love that show. It is definitely a winner! Congratulations to you and thanks again!

    Someone by the name of Lee Evans commented back in 2013 that it is a disappointment to see a so called law student try to become a success by prostituting themselves and blackmailing and extorting their would be mentors. Gotta agree with you Lee! There is no easy road to riches and success! The Candace character is indeed pitiful because she worked for nothing ..........

  • Linda Sheppard Roanoke, Alabama

    I love this program... I just wish the season had more episodes than it does! Can't wait to see what happened to Maggie Day. And will David continue trying to protect that devilish Veronica? Is Wyatt dead???? Hurry June 21st!

      Hello Mr Perry, I love your "Haves and the have Nots", but how could you leave us hanging like that. The last one I saw was S3 E11 - 48 Hours that aired 03/05/2016. Was that the finale for season 3?. Can you post somewhere when the Ep will be shown again? May God continue to bless you, you're such a talented man. Also is there any new movies coming out!!! Sincere Fan
