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).

    Ummm I really enjoy The Haves and the Have Nots but it is only available on DirectTV for me for 80.00 a month. I am wanting to purchase the DVD set but it is not available. Why isn't it on HULU or Netflix? Come on Tyler Perry give me something!

    I Enjoy this show a lot but would like to know why I am unable to find the past episodes from season 1 and season 2 online. Why is this show not available on Amazon, Netflix or Hulu or OWN. The past episodes are not available for purchase anywhere. I think this is insane.

    I love the show and I love Tyler Perry but often I find many of his story lines do not make sense. They are simply unrealistic! Why would Candace need Oscar to put $500,000 in an account that has 4,000,000? Why would Oscar be in a jet that must be turned around to go meet with Candace when everything he was doing was for show? Why would he go to her house requesting his money when he had gotten what he wanted?

      Well I see you have followed the entire past seasons. truly because that 7 million was stolen would you go tell an organization that you had this money when you had no honest job. That's why

    Hello....I have called Tyler Perry studios in Atlanta and have used Shazam and Spotify to find out the name of the song that was played during hot tub scene of the haves and the have nots with Oscar and Candace. When I called Tyler Perry Studios, the lady was VERY RUDE and told me that that info was not made public...WHY NOT??? ...I'm not sure why they won't release the name of the song. Obviously they see on all the message boards that people want the song...Why not let the artist get his or her due credit????Seems kind of silly to me....ijs

      I also E Mail Tyler Perry to get the name and the artist of the song that played during the hot tub scene I was told that it was written for the scene.

    • Ms Holloway #2145739

      Me too. But oddly enough I didn't trust him. But hoped I was wrong so Candace could actually find love. Oscar lowered her guards
