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 all! I had the same question as you all about the whereabouts of viewing the episode of HAHN. I came across two websites online where you can watch the full episodes beginning with season 1. The links are below. Hope you enjoy as much as I did! :)

  • Amber OK

  • Christina Pflugerville, TX

    For those of us that cut the cable bill, is there any other way to watch your TV shows in full and not clips? I have no problem subscribing to your series, I just don't want a cable bill for channels I don't watch.

      You can watch them on Netflix or on Hulu or you can get the Amazon Fire s**** which I have to watch them all.

    • kastancea scott #2162418

      You can not watch this on hulu or netflix because i tried looking for them

    • Gordon Middlesex, NC #2162498

      My thoughts exactly!! I have watched the show from the beginning but had to lower my package and the package that i have now does not have OWN... I will miss seeing it this season due to this matter... I refuse to pay direct TV the price that they charge for the package that offers OWN.... The show needs to be offered on more networks!!

  • TJay PA

    i want to start watching this show and it's extremely disappointing I can't watch it ANYWHERE. No DVDs, no nothing. I'm paying for OWN and can't even stream it online. Please fix this, how do u expect to develop a new fan base when we can't even start from the beginning?

  • Dawn Toronto

    Great 1st season but OWN will not bring it back to Toronto...I have written OWN & the cable channels here in Toronto & no one can say why we were teased with season 1. We were just left hanging. I have tried Netflix but nothing...I have tried YouTube but not a full episode ...just reviews...please bring the seasons on DVD that way we can purchase in the US and get caught up....so frustrating we go nothing after season 1.... DVD please

    After watching this show since day one, it may seem a bit ironic that my FAVORITE thing about the show is We Really Don't Know Which Family Are the "Haves" and which are "Have Nots." I mean of course the Cryer's have the money and popularity but does that qualify them to be considered the "Haves" even though they lack the love, companionship, faith, unbreakable bonds, family, true friendship and etc.... I love this story line

  • Sandra Nashville TN

    I have watched this show for the last 2 seasons & pretty much know all that is going on. Somehow, though, I have missed out on why Veronica got Quincy out of the pen to go after Candace & what is the beef with Maggie & Candace.

    • Adrevia Memphis #2161859

      Because Candace was starting to interfere with Veronica's life (Advising Jeffrey and blackmailing Jim which wasn't good for David and causing h*** in Catherine's life). Now that the season has moved forward it's all because of Jeffrey. On the other hand Maggie doesn't like Candace because of her 'disrespectful" ways and how she terrorizes the Cryer's which started small "beef" with the two. Also, Candace thinks (knows) Maggie is in to David

    • Darryl Dandridge Maryland #2161885

      Hi Sandra Veronica got Quincy out of jail so he could deter things that Candice was doing to Jim. Leave Jim alone so he could win the election.

  • Pat Bryant Atlanta Ga

    I love this show -- I have to look at other stuff when they are on vacation -- I can't wait to see what happens -- I am glad that Quincy is possibly killed off of the show -- and I hope that Candace does what other people do when their money gets lifted from a bank -- contact the bank -- tell them you did not authorize the transaction and they should at that point get her money back -- she deserves that money -- did they forget when Jim Cryer kidnapped her and kept her in a basement or something for several days -- they only kept him for one. Her mom is too holy -- I guess y'all have to write her that way -- but she doesn't have a man -- and everything is wrong to her -- a new house and everything -- and why blame Candace for that -- she knows that she didn't drive a car through her house -- she's not that bad -- good grief. Looking forward to seeing what happens to the VIP's in jail. Well I don't have long....
