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).

    D*** Hannah!! If she weren't so pig headed and had stayed @Benny's none of this would be happening! She makes me sick! That baby's gonna get taken from her and put in foster care! As for that Quita, I hope she gets run over or hurt; who does she think she is?? It's about time Candace found out about Wyatt hitting Benny and the little girl; and since Jeffrey has shown his true colors and is such a chicken, I hope she implicates him in Q's murder; and he has the nerve to blame everything on her! Yeah, she's a liar and a schemer, but if he weren't such a p-nk and knew how to man up to Veronica, and weren't such a fool for Wyatt, he wouldn't need anyone's help! Candace still has to deal w/Warlock, and now we have 'Oscar' back on the scene...this should be good! Candace has yet to deal w/Oscar and the $$ he stole from her account! Things are getting really messy now; this is a bomb shell season!! LOVE IT!

      Are you kidding? Candace stole the money from the Cryers? She is not owed anything. She is really the cause for Amanda's death. Making Jeffrey stand up for who he is one thing but to go against His mother is another. The street people need to go, that part is too ghetto!! Every character has done something to warrant bad to happen to them. Definitely not for Candace to have the money--No way!!!

    Love this show! I make sure I'm tuned on Tuesday night to watch it

    Loved last season and this season began well but now it is just tooooooo drug out. Get on with the story will you. No one with that much money and connection would be denied a simple phone call for this long. Time to release who ever and move on. Also, I don't know how Candace can possibly dispose of that dead body after it has laid there that length of time. Really? Love the show but please don't lose your objective here.

    I thought the 1st season was very impressive I just couldn't even wait to see the 2nd; though somewhere mid-season 2 it just got boring. The exageration of the whole story and that little gals character Candace (Euphemia Sumpter). I believe Tyler Perry is also trying to lift up the black race status, but he should do it cautiosly without making it look a bit ridiculous; all the other characters should feel up the story more......... That's why I think he really tried to do something with 'If Loving you is Wrong' - much better. Good Luck - - David Zee.......Uganda.

    Can someone please tell me how I can start this serious from season 1, episode 1? OWN on demand only starts at season 4. I don't know why anyone would want to start a series from season 4... there's so much missing. Thanks

  • Louise Parnell

    I want to know the lines where David tells Jim about being his enemy

  • diane o Mi.

    Jim/Jeff spitting out the truth for David in front of Veronica in that cell was to rich for words...I loved every second! Laughed thru the second & third watching too...Please let Kathrine's moment with Veronica be even better - I'm begging you here....Give RL another highlight moment for all the false friendship & BS thrown her way.
