Description:

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).

    The scene at the hospital where Hanna and Benny are in the waiting room and Quincy is seen exiting the emergency entrance walking slowly with papers in his hand. Looks like he was seen and released from the hospital. Now the hospital has a record of his injury and his first and last name associating Quincy as the biological father to Q.

      @ Gail Q is not a a smart @ ss 4 year old with an attitude. He is a sweet and charming young man who has been abuse by his father. Tyler Perry cast an excellent actor to portray Q as he is a better actor than some adults on HAHN.

      HUH??? Little Q is just adorable! He can't help it that he's been horribly abused by his father and his sister!! He's just saying what he was taught to say by those 'in charge of his care'! Bless his heart, he just wants his grandma and mother!

    Mr. Perry, you have a tremendous God Given Talent! You also have a great eye for talent in that you have introduced your audiences to so many talented actors through your work. I hope that you will consider putting past seasons of HAHN on DVD. Keep up the great work and many thanks for entertaining those of us who love and appreciate your work. Your fans love you! I am so very happy for you. God Bless :-)

    I think the situation with Wyatt and Jim has gone to far. especially since he has gotten rape in jail. I believe that Candice is being set up by Jim with this new guy I don't trust that situation. With all that being said that I don't like the promotion of the LGBT in the show like if thats what not God created . The sexual content is too graffic and disrespectful to those you are married or wanting to be celibate. Overall I like the show but tone it down a bit. Mr. Perry I enjoy watching everything that you do and I think you are looking at these characters from all directions with people who may be going through that same or maybe similar situations.

      Aisha ,,welcome to the real world if anything tyler is not bringing it hard enough,,he gives these hardcore roles and in the outcome they come out weak,,look at quincy,,throwing Jeffery around like a ragdoll and wont lay a figure on benny,,,let whiyett get raped that the reality of prison....look how candance has been a bad b**** and this guy got her weak,,,the only one that is real and stands on it is Veronica,,,so you are not on reality of life and he need a beginning of these people as ruff and a ending in the same way,,

      People like Quincy like to prey on those who are weaker than they are, that they can control and boss around and make afraid of them; but when they come up on someone who's NOT scared of them, they fold like a piece of paper! Benny beat Q's -ss, and Q knew he had met his match; however...he could have @least gotten in a few licks for good measure, just to show he wasn't a COMPLETE P-NK!! This isn't over, he's gonna keep coming until either Benny or maybe War will have to kill him! That's the only way to keep a mad dog down!

    The last thing Candace want is Child Protective to investigate her and find out she is an escort unemployed and does not have a stable environment to raise Q. If Candace were smart she would let Q live with Hanna for the time being and work on passing the bar and securing steady employment. This may be how Candace and Hanna will bond as mother and daughter for their love of Q. Oscar is slick as he does not care the least bit about Candace and her painful life. Wyatt is where he need to be in prison for his crime. Veronica is using Benny for sex. Melissa is Veronica#2 in the making. Professor Canon should file charges against Jim Cryer for assault. All of the children at Quincy sister place should be put in foster care. Q seems to be such a sweet child who does not deserve to be treated so bad. Both Quincy and his sister should be charge with child abuse.

    OMG!!! Little Q is just the cutest little boy!!! I wanted to reach through the tv and keep him with me!! Those somber little eyes of his...and he did a WONDERFUL job with his lines, too! Just a little heart-breaker!!! Love it! For once, Candace kept her promise and beat it home to her child! Now she and Hannah will be @war again over who's going to get custody of him! Hannah would appear to be the logical choice, BUT if Candace can get herself together, get a job (with Oscar's help) and show she can be a good mother, she might have a chance; but Quincy has to be dealt with once and for all! They should get WAR to kill him! He would do it for 'Candy Cane'! *I did enjoy the beat-down Jim gave the professor! **Wyatt is getting r-ped in prison, and he'll never forgive Jim for letting that happen; Katherine won't either! ***Melissa is a real piece of work; good for Jeffrey for letting her know he won't be bamboozled into marrying her, regardless of psycho Veronica's plans! WAY TO GO, BENNY...YOU'RE THE MAN!!!!

    If you don't got anything positive to say don't say anything at all. Nobody wants to read negative comments, when we come on this website we look for positivity, inspiration, encouragement and we are suppose to see Gods people applauding this man on what he has given him to do. So take that negative spirt and take it somewhere else. It's people like you who bring everybody's elses mood down. For God sake, he just lost a close friend. All of the things going on in his life, do you really think he want to come on this message board and read all the bad comments yall are putting on here, you need to be ashamed of yourself! I'm so sick on coming on this website and reading bad things to say about this man of God he should be aplaudded for what he does. If you got a problem with his work, then I'd like to see you in his shoes for a day. Some people just don't appreciate the pleasure that he is trying to please people after they come home of long days work!

      Like i said before. I don't know about anybody else but when I come on this website I expect to see inspiration, encouragement, and positivity and so on. And I didn't mention nothing about the show. I was saying it's not necessary to post nasty comments on his website. They saying the show is starting to get disgusting, when it's them is disgusting and need to chill out over the soap opera!!! I said think before you go and post nasty comments on the wall. Do you really think, Sheila, that he want to come on HIS website, yes HIS website, and read any kind of comments on here. Like I said before he just lost a friend, give this man a break. Find out another way to deal with ur frustrations on the show. And a good start would be to stop watching it if yall got so much to say!!!!!!

    Tyler Perry, this show has become sick and disgusting. You call this writing entertainment? People watch shows to escape the wickedness of this world, not to watch a concentrated form after work in the evenings. Please consult with true screenwriters.
