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).

    Veronica provoke Jeffrey to stabbed her in saying all those cruel things to him. I hope the police officer can help Jeffrey with his dilemma. War and Jim will meet up in jail and talk about how to get even with Candace. Hopefully Mitch will not do time in setting up War. I thought by now Quincy sister would be questioning Veronica as the whereabouts of her brother Quincy.

      Interesting point. Didn't think of that, Jim and War meeting up in jail. Wow!

    • AlleyCat Michigan #2197603

      That is interesting! Because Jim will tell War that Candace blackmailed him for 7.5 million and Candace told War it was 4 million (lied to him again)

    • lorraine #2197644

      Hi, Alley Cat; actually, War already knows she got 7+M when he found out how much her house, Benny's house, and the tow yard cost! Benny told him! She had told War she ONLY got 4M and gave him a measley 10K, that's why he was so p.o.'d when he found out how much she really got! Hey, I'd be mad, too! 10K for all the things he did for her??? That's chump change! She could have at least made it $100K! But she's such a conniving wench, she just took advantage of his feelings for her; sorry, but I have NO sympathy for her, just the unfortunate folks who have to pay for her sh-t!

    Veronica needs to be put in a coma until next season. When she awake Jeffery is married to a Man. Her Husband had control of her Funds. Now she is broke. The young Lady had a miscarriage. Wayatt is alive, the Proscutor Jennifer get whipped by Catherine. War needs to be off the show, he has played out.

      I so agree, I have become tired of war, the same way I did with Quincy. It is time to have Veronica committed to a mental institution. I also believe Wyatt is still alive. So tired of Jeffrey letting his mother dictate his life, no matter what she thinks she has on him, she can't prove that Jeffrey was involved in it. I wanted to stab Veronica myself.

  • Delnisio Alexandria

    Wow last night show was good, Wonder what's going to happen with WAR and Candace. I saw that coming with jeffery, but didn't think he would stab her. Just wish it would come out on DVD, I will buy it in a heartbeat

    Love the show have been watching since day 1! Last night was great but some of the comments made by Veronica about growing up in the hood really pissed me off!!!! I know its a show and I know snooty folks like her feel that way but its a bit too much! Thanks for the show and I am really ready for Veronica to go! Thanks!

    • ANNA THOMAS #2197229

      I am so not ready for Veronica to leave the show, no matter how much she pisses me off... Her character is so sinister and compelling that's she keeps me on the edge of my seat. But it is time for her to reap some of what she has sown. She and Candace.

    It's time to hear Candace laugh very pretty and very loud like mean Roseanne Barr very loud but prettier showing that gorgeous pearly white grille in the next episode. Please Tyler Perry have her laughing at Veronica being stabbed to death; I hope you have her in the same room laughing at her. I still want Candace beat up Veronica brutally at c******* party or wedding and laugh as she beats her up until the doctors have to wrapped Veronica up like a mummy in a wheel chair with both broken legs and arms with a head concussion. I want Candace to loud so hard and so loud like Cruella Deville loud, the Sea Witch from the little Mermaid, the evil Queen from Snow White, and Angelica Houston from the Witches loud but still look glamorous.

    I love the show i truely do bt i feel like veronica needs to die simple. She is beginning to be the person i could hate in real life. Another thing is how is war going to think candance sat him up with the drugs? I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg this season i cant wait to see more.

    • ANNA THOMAS #2197230

      War will think Candy Cane is capable of anything.. I see this drama dragging out for a long time. I hate she did not give him enough money the first time so we could be done with him. Sorry , I just do not like his character.

  • Carmen Irving Huntsville

    Candice, Veronica Harrington and Bennie are the true stars of this GREAT Show even though all of the characters are good. Right now Veronica's character is being so cruel to everyone that it's just of matter of time before someone kills her. Please tone her down a bit so she won't destroy her son and push her husband to divorce. I was praying after Maggie was out of the way, maybe the Harringtons would grow closer. It hurts to see Candice cry even though she has done dirt to many. Please do not let her lose her and Bennie's house and tow shop. Glad to see War go down! Please don't ever let him out again. He is too cruel and he needs to be put away for life. Love the show! Keep up the good work!

    • Carol MSP #2197538

      Please bring Wyatt back, they can not loose both there children. This has to a mistake, he can not die.

  • Please bring Wyatt character back! We don't

    Please rewrite the script to show it was a mistaken and now show his parents that they all three need each other & this opportunity will show them the true meaning of family loving each other, to assist each, not pass judgement, showing compassion, & empathy! Finally that family s**** together through the good & bad times!

    I really think the season finale should be that the Crier's finds out they have a daughter (that is homeless which is the identical twin of their daughter) and Mr. Crier see her roaming the streets and think he is having a breakdown and will have to be put in a mental ward until someone prove him right. This identical twin was separated at birth and she was taken by someone from the hospital who raised her in an abusive situation so she ran away and is now homeless. She will have issues, and the Crier's will bring her to live with them. I have a lot of ideas, but Mr. Perry you can carry it from there.

    • ANNA THOMAS #2197232

      Maybe this will bring Jim Crier closer to his illegitimate children he had with the maid. Since all of his biological children are now dead.

      I guess it will be WAR BABY

  • Sina

    Mr. T. Perry, how are you doing? I knew Wyatt was not going to be the deceased man on the bed. Yay! His mom and dad would be more broken they lost him, especially after losing their daughter several episodes ago. I was truly going to reach out to ask you to please change your mind about killing Wyatt, because he is a victim of circumstance, due to his parents negligence. I enjoy watching your skillful writings and I anticipate what you will do next with your thathn characters! Thank you
