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).

    Hello Tyler You are doing such a wonderful job. I think the Haves and the Have nots need to get an aware from the NAACP, Grammy. The writing and directing that you do is excellent keep up the good work. I was so shocked to find out that Amanda was killed and not being a suicide. I believe that Celine could be a suspect, because she was upset with Jim for not acknowledging that they have a son together. It could also be Quincy, maybe he sneaked in the room and got in a argument and the gun went off. It came to mind that Wyatt, with him drinking. I can't wait to find out who did the suspense is killing me (smile) Keep on Keeping on Tyler

      I THINK THAT THE PROFESSOR KILLED AMANDA. HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD MOTIVE. SHE WAS STOCKING HIM, AND SHE EVEN STABBED HIM. REMEMBER JIM LEFT THE DOOR UNLOCKED WHEN HE WAS TAKEN BY THE HOOD. AND HE IS STILL IN THE PICTURE BECAUSE CANDICE CALLED HIM FOR A JOB ON THE LAST EPISODE.

    The first two season were great but this season is crazy. There are so many story lines and somehow they do not seem to cross. First I think the rest of the show should be the court case and the presenting the evidence. The fact that the Cryer tired to cover up their son almost killed Benny. The bribe to pay his hospital bill. The kidnapping etc Candace rocks.... She needs to take them to the mat for what they did. Veronica needs to cool out when it comes to her son. The campaign manager needs to continue to try to get with Veronica husband.

    The guy who plays Benny's father looks a lot like Benny are they related? Also , Tyler i love the show can't wait until Tuesday nights, however If Loving You Is Wrong is wrong, it's tooooo fake. The story line s are fine but the acting is not realistic.

    Tyler, The haves and have most is truly a favorite... can't wait each week. I record it each week. And will continue to. Why? Because of the commercials! 21 commercials in 15 minutes? Wow!! Seems like we only watch the show for 3 minutes then a lot of commercials. That's why I record it! After this week I won't be watching on Tuesdays. I'll watch on Wednesday so I can FF The commercials. Sad but true. Way to many!! Advertisement is great but really?

    Hi Tyler. I loved this evenings show. So many people thought that Amanda killed herself, well I have 2 other theories. 1. Quincy snuck into her room, got into an argument with Amanda and the gun went off. 2. My personal favorite: The professor who had raped Amanda, snuck into her house and killed her. Why? 1. Amanda kept stalking him. 2. Amanda's visit to his home (bedroom). She was in his bedroom with him, his wife and daughter. 3. Last time we saw him Amanda had stabbed him. 4. Amanda was also pregnant by him. Remember when Jim and Candace had a fight in her bathroom and they broke the shower stall, a pregnancy test fell out of the trash, Jim thought it was Candance's.

      The two theory's are Quincy and the professor who killed Amanda. I think this was an excellent way to get her out of the picture. I did not like her story line to much. Seems like perfect timing that the murder happened the same night Candace thugs got Mr. Cryer. Candace need to get the whole story what they did to her brother and her mother has all the pieces of the evidence for the court case. Candace needs to pass the bar exam and get them.

    Tyler should add to his episodes ... No matter what, honor they father and thy mother that thy days shall be long ... The 1st commandment with promise. So those that live fast and by the sword, die fast and by the sword.
