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).

    peter john I am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today... i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail. i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me. " if you want to get rich quick and be famous" you need to cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found an email address of this great fraternity () so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest... so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $70,000,000.00 to start up our lives.... and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email them now at () you kind as add me on whatsapp+982 or call +940

      Happy 4th of July Tyler! Im looking forward to the show tomorrow night. Please dont make me wait all summer to find out if Candace loses everything or not?

  • Debbie Leffler San Antonio

    I've been wanting to watch this show for a long time now, because I just love love love John Schneider!! And have ever since his Dukes of Hazard days! I also like some Tyler Perry movies and shows, favorite being House of Payne. Finally, I got Dish and they carry OWN. I just DVR the entire seasons marathon leading up to the new episode last Tuesday. I watched it for 3 or 4 days in a row. I LOVE IT!!! I knew I'd like it, because of John Schneider, but I didn't know that I'd love it! John plays Jim Cryer sooooo good! He makes JR Ewing look like a Boy Scout! I love Rene Lawless too! I wish Jim would show just a tiny bit of love towards Katheryn. I love the show!

    Thank you Mr Perry you are a great inspiration.Tika sumpter is juss awsome ....she really does bring out that candice lady.I truly believe in candice ...can we please start to see her being in a law firm working and kicking a** but still being a biatch...She needs to still own that lovely house ..let her not get screwed up ...graduate her life a bit.It doesn't matter if she was an escort ..I actually say kudos to get ...for building her life..And that candice mother ...tjooooo I say this shaking my head ...sometimes if not always her crying is too much ...It's like I want to juss fast toward when she comes up.Why can't she be juss lovely and not be too dramatic it's like watching an A nigerian movie ...sorry to say but Haa her character Jeans is tiring ...Can she love candice a bit.TO BE HONEST IF IT WASN'T FOR CANDICE ...THE CHARACTER AND THE ACTRESS HERSELF TIKA I WOULD NOT ENJOY THE SHOW AS I DO...she's my role model ....in some areas in real life even some strengths she possesses in her characters.Thank you she.

      I definitely agree with you. Candace is my favorite character too I would love to upgrade to lawyer too. PLease Tyler Perry allow Candace to become a lawyer, b*** before Candace becomes a lawyer; she needs to whoop the mess out of Quincy's sister, Quita, not too severe but give her 1 broken arm, a sprang ankle, and a swollen bruise back full of welps and Have Candace to threaten to give Quita some or more burning bruises on the head and scalp burns if Quita doesn't ask questions. And Candace need brand Quita with a brander, the same way farmers do the cows and make sure she brand the word heifer on her back and then send her prison or ship her off tie up in box to exile prison in another state or another country. And make Candace whoop the stank out of Veronica like Lisa Raye Mccoy's character Diamond did that girl on the Players' Club and please let it be at a wedding or c******* party and please have Veronica hanging from the balcony and Candace laughing at Veronica throughout the whole fight and have Candace laughing really harder I mean showing all her teeth laughing when Veronica is hanging from the balcony. And make Candace gets some guns; she need them bad. Make sure Candace carry them in a suitcase like Pam Grier did in the movie Sheba, Baby especially since Candace have to get Oscar. Make sure Candace learn how fly an airplane too and use it to chase her enemies especially Oscar. Make sure Candace give Oscar his due just like Betty Davis did in the movie "the Letter" and Pam Grier in the movie, Coffy, Foxy Brown, and Sheba, baby. If Candace have to get some type of punishment or probation or time, put Candace on house arrest like Madea and have her be a foster mama like Madea. Have her be a foster mama to all those kids that live in Quita's apartment and have the government give her a check for each child. Have Candace use that social worker A aliyah to certify Candace custody over all those kids and make sure she gets a check for each child.

      Kill Candace off the show. Or let her be shot and paralyzed and get pay back

    I WANT TO SHARE MY LIFE EXPERIENCE ON HOW I GOT CURED FROM HIV BY HERBAL MEDICINE. It may sound strange! For the past 6years i have spent a lot of money in buying anti-retroviral medicines to strengthen my immune system and keep me healthy, until i read an article on the internet about an Africa Herbalist who uses herbs and roots to cure HIV and all kind of diseases. Though i never believed he can cure HIV, but i decided to give it a try because i was desperate. Then i sent a message to the him on his email prepared herbal medications and send it to me through DHL COURIER DELIVERY SERVICES and i took it as he instructed. 11days after, i went to the hospital to do a checkup, the result came out and i tested NEGATIVE. I'm sharing this with you, because i believe there's someone out here who also desire to have this cure. feel free to send a message to him through his email call him on +060 or add him on whatsapp or see his website at drabaherbalhome.webs.com

    the rape scene with Candace is difficult to handle, but reality when you deal with that type criminal mindset. I do see her however killing him in the end or setting him up.
