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).

    I recently discovered this show and was able to watch a few episodes someone else had saved from the first season. How can I catch up on the rest of the first, second and third season?

    My sister and I loved to watch The Haves and The Have Nots. We would get together for a great chat, but after the first year, it didn't come back on the OWN channel in Canadian...we are very disappointed. I would love to see it come back to Canada, we watch everything that you produce...BIG FAN. Blessings for 2016

    One episode, I thought Candace was dead. The gun shot must been fake or had no bullets maybe.

    I want Jim & Kathrine (both) out for blood over what happened to their son...I love bad @ss Veronica but she no friend of the Cryers. It just kills me watching Kath being screwed over.


    Responding to the Christian about speaking in tongues. Although this may not be for Christian viewing...the truth is we live in a society with all of these flaws and imperfections. I'm a Christian, and my role as a Christian is not to judge other Christians. God brought Tyler Perry this far to promote the truths about our waist land world. And if you take the time to view these worldly things happening, you learn to find ways to pray for others, to deliver others from the hurts and pains they all suffer from. Face it we live in a world that is stigmatized and glamorizes sick behavior. . . AND the only way to conquer sick behavior is through deliverance, speaking in tongues.

    Most addicting soap opera I've ever watched....better than day time television soaps. I think the acting is incredible. The intensity and the mood of each character I think they're spot on. Tyler Perry always surprises me. He not only does comedy well, but the drama is beyond drama, beyond dysfunctional family...He gives a whole new meaning to what Dysfunctional family really is!!!
