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).

    Mr. Perry I love the Have and Have Nots, I honestly cannot think of anyway you could improve upon perfection. I sent you a message some time ago regarding bringing back the House of Payne. Have you and Ms. Winfrey considered bringing it to OWN? Additionally, I have an eighty-two year old mother, I have a question I would like to ask you about her, but I have searched and been unable to find a means of writing you a letter, this is something I would really rather not put on a public site. If u could email me an address, it could be to urge studio, just so I can get it to you. I appreciate all you do .

    Greetings: I originally asked when Season 3 would return. Is it going to be any earlier than May 27, 2014 as posted. Is Benny going to live or die? Please write him in. I was so disappointed on last night when the show didn't come on. I was waiting on 4-22-14 to see it. It messed me up so I just fell asleep. Keep on writing. LOL

    My best mood is the night this show comes on (Have and Have nots). I really look forward to it because they are so many stories going on at the same time. That is what makes it fun. Now Scandal used to be my favorite show Mr. Perry but not anymore. It's not my favorite. anymore.. Then you came along and Tues. night's are my night's. I wait so my husband watches it with me.. Not an easy task. I want to slap that white maid . That woman is evil I don't understand why this show goes away for weeks and finally comes back. That makes me angry. In my dentst's office the nurse was irritated because you skipped a wk and it wasn't on. lore williams

    I don't know if everyone "gets it", but this show is about the seamier side of the lives of the rich, poor, famous & infamous. It's SUPPOSE to be "trashy". Get a clue. I am over 70 years of age, (probably not in the prime demographic that the show is aimed at), and I can't wait to get my TH&HNs fix on Tuesday nights. Keep up the good work TP. Ignore the "Haters".

    One of the best television show I seen so far. Some people actually in some of the characters situation. The emotional relationship is so real and powerful it also breaks you down to crying point. By far Hannah is myy favorite. I missed the whole first season but you still know what's going on. I can honestly say I cant wait until May 27th. Great job Tyler Perry keep up the good work

    "Have, Have Nots" is the best TV series ever. I've never seen so many "real" characters that make me laugh, cry and totally get where each are coming from. Bravo Mr. Tyler Perry, bravo!
