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 just read the "Shocked Viewer" comment and had to ask myself "did I write that and forgot that I had?" I was just chatting with some friends - all very discriminating about how we give our time to TV. We found the first season of Haves to be quite well done. However last season totally wasted our time. One actress's lines for the entire season were "eeney, meany, miney, mo" and then a gunshot. Another actor woke up out of a coma and spent the entire season in the kitchen with his mother! Some actors had one change of clothing for the whole season - really?? We felt insulted by the season and don't plan to watch the next one but please respect your viewers' time enough to deliver quality entertainment and not simply string them along while they contribute to your ratings.

    I'm absolutely in love with this show and all the cast. Things on the show are now getting HOTTER and JUICIER than ever and I'm so glad that me, my family and church family haven't missed one single episode of both seasons. We are so looking forward for third season...we are so looking forward to it that we even MARKED IT ON OUR CALENDARS AND EVERYTHING ELSE!!! We are, like, your biggest superfans in the world. Keep up the good work, Tyler, and we can't wait to get your new play "Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned" on DVD when it comes out in November.

    I absolutely love this show! It is well written and one of the best soaps I have watched in a very long time. It is more relatable than those soaps you see in the afternoons. The actors are perfectly matched for each character. Tyler Perry has out done his self once again! I can not wait for the new season to start! The anticipation is driving me crazy! Please keep the shows and movies coming Tyler (Perry), but Don't you Dare think of ending this series anytime soon! I would like to see this go on like the day time soaps which are in my opinion no where near real life or relatable to anything in the daily life of REAL people! Tyler Perry has a true gift from God! Write on Tyler (Perry) Write on. :)

    OMG...this is the best weekly series drama on TV. I don't usually watch these kinds of shows, but I am hooked! Wish there was not so much down time between seasons. I think this is Tylers best show on OWN!!!

  • Nita Memphis, TN

    I love the show... and have been anticipating its return. I want to know who was shot, if anyone. Please come back before January. The anticipation is too great!!

      Hello tyler, I love the Haves and the Have Nots!!!!I can hardly wait for it to return on 1/6/15. I never watch day time soaps, however, I fell in love with "Dallas" and have every show up until JR died and I will watch every episode of the Haves and Have Nots as they are aired. Will you ever put the 1st and 2nd seasons on DVD so that I can buy them to add to my collection? Please do, I'm sure that there are others who would like to buy them. Thank you for all you do, may God be with you and congratulations on becoming a new father!
