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).

    Wyatt is alive, he will be going to jail because he killed his sister, I knew she didn't commit suicide. The cop going to help Jeffery move the body a clean up the blood. "Q" and Jim going to hook-up to get revenge on Candace. #1 Question is how is Candace going to keep the house and Beanie tow yard and pay the bank. I think she will get away because those documents are not real

      WHERE are you getting this information? Don't spoil it for those of us who want to be surprised, please!!!

    • rhonda NJ #2198299

      Yeah, keep your knowledge to yourself. That's the whole reason for watching. the suspense and excitement of it all.

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2198302

      Well if you all dont like surprise theories then oh well, but I got one too! Dont be surprised if the Ice Queen turns out to be the Ice Man! Veronica with the wigs, and now the breast implants? This chick might be straight up transegender! Who is to say that Jeffrey is not adopted! There,I said it !

    • lorraine #2198333

      Hi, Lena; I don't consider that a surprise b/c I said way back when veronica first found out about Jeffrey, that I thought her reaction was b/c when SHE was young, she was lesbian, and her parents did the same thing to her that she's doing to Jeffrey! That's why she kept pushing him to have sex w/a woman 'til he 'learned' to enjoy it! Hell, she might have a 'thing' for Katheryn, Hannah, or even (heaven help us) CANDACE! LOL! But being trans, I never thought of that...boy, that would be a hoot! And you mean to tell me that DAVID never suspected? Or did he?? Things that make you go 'hmmmmm'! She can't even admit she has fake boobs! The hair thing isn't unusual these days...almost everybody's running around w/hair that's not theirs (except me...I love my naps)! *And before I forget...Katheryn is starting to act like an entitled white woman! Even the way she tried to withhold Hannah's paycheck; then begged her to stay! Eventually, they all revert to their true selves, so-called 'friends' or not!

      Huh???? So you saying Quincy not dead either? Or did you mean War? I know one thing this is turning into a BLOOD BATH. I don't know what planet Veronica from but she won't even bleed. Jeffrey baby mama not showing. And, Wyatt been laying there face down 36 hrs the DA says an David walk in and he breathing??? What? Where was the paramedics?

    • Shelly Haves and have nots #2198349

      I think her professor that raped her. was in the house and killed her. Remember she went to his house made him hold a gun in his mouth. But dead now papa Jim took care of that

    • rhonda NJ #2198363

      Wow, Veronica being trans-gender! Now wouldn't that be something else! So that's why David had an affair with Jennifer? But if that were so,... she shouldn't be so hard on her son? Tyler tyler tyler, you wouldn't !, would you? What a twist! And what to do about Wyatt? War, Candice and Benny, Now that's another storyline. and what's with Candice's son? Keep us on the edge!

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2198404

      The reason Hannah kept laughing and Veronica didnt bleed was because when Jeffrey stabbed her he stuck the knife in one of her breast implants.... So he actually didnt really stab her at all ! He only thinks he did !

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2198406

      The reason Veronica wouldnt bleed when Jeffrey stabbed her is because the knife went into one of her breast implants so technically she really wasnt stabbed at all ! So,her fake breast saved her a** from being stabbed in the heart...........

      She doesn't know anything. She's just assuming. First of Quincy is DEAD!!!

    How can all of the people in the hotel room just stare at Wyatt without really verifying that it is him or calling paramedics to check his condition. Spoiler: It took David almost 32 hours later to confirm he was still breathing.Why assume that he OD'd. A security guard feeling for a pulse for two seconds is not a diagnosis. For three episodes they stood in the room as though they did not know what to do with an overdose. Why were paramedics not called until David asked for them. In addition, Veronica is so crazy that she is denying having implants that saved her life even when shown her x-ray. Can't wait until Catherine finds out that Veronica had Wyatt assaulted in prison. Jeffrey needs to get away from Candice completely. As many times as David has offered to help Jeffrey, Jeffrey should take David's financial assistance and do like Landon and skip town or go overseas. Jeffrey is his own worse enemy. Should have called 911 when he killed Quincy (it was self defense/stop Quincy from killing Candice) especially when it was know by everyone that Quincy was after her. Jeffrey is so panicky that he does not realize that Veronica is just fishing for clues and does not have any concrete evidence against Candice or Jeffrey other than Jeffrey giving himself away with his guilty expressions. Hope they do a psych consult on her in the hospital because of her delusional behavior. Doubt Melissa is pregnant, but if she is, DNA test please.

    Hello Mr. Perry, This comment might be out of the norm, But I was wondering if I could make a suggestion or an idea for you to think about. I am a totally blind person who enjoys your movies and sitcoms. I happen to know that the visually impaired community watches many of your shows. Not sure if you're familiar with: Audio Described vidios. Well it describes things verbally the things that we're not able to follow or see on the screen. For instance, if the show or movie has a lot of action going on, the action portion would be described to us. So I'm writing to ask if you might consider adding something such as this to make viewing your movies and shows much pleasureable and easier. Just a thought to ponder. Thank you in advance.

  • alex california

    Interesting show. Some scenes are way too drawn out. What I can't figure out is why Veronica didn't have blood gushing out of her chest when her son stabbed her. Props!

    • lorraine #2198335

      Alex, b/c the knife didn't go in far enough (too bad) and the only time you gush blood is when the knife is pulled OUT! That's why you leave a knife or any type of object that punctures your body (knife, ice pick, hatchet, etc.) IN, to keep from bleeding out...I wish Hannah had yanked it out and had that heifer bleed out on Katheryn's floor, but you see when the paramedics came and took it out, she wasn't even bleeding, THANKS TO THE IMPLANTS THAT SHE DENIED HAVING!!! She's a d*** nut job!

  • lorraine

    If Wyatt is still alive after all this time, I'm going to be really disgusted!!! For the amount of drugs he consumed, he should have been dead instantly!!! Talk about unrealistic!!! This is a major plot FAIL if he's not dead! He & Amanda are of no use to the show now, so why keep them around? If they killed her off, why not Wyatt? And they're now trying to imply that there were 'hits' put out on both kids??? GMAB! *Katheryn needs to stop being so snippy! SHE got Hannah up out of her bed to come help her when she was blubbering and sniveling, now she's telling her to 'go home' just b/c Hannah's glad that Veronica got stabbed; I'm glad, too! I just wish the knife had gone in a little deeper! **Mitch is starting to amuse me...he's straight-up gangsta! He definitely must have some kind of 'connections' that no one knows about! He wasn't scared to go tot-to-toe w/War, either! He tickled me telling him, "What's up, War, I heard you like to 'get it started'!" Say WHAT?! LOL!!! ***So now we're gonna see what Jim and War come up with re: Candace; and find out how that girlfriend of Candace knows OSCAR, who's about to get HIS! And I hope Jeffrey's lover helps him out of this mess! Lots of stuff coming up...can't wait!!!

    • rhonda NJ #2198300

      Was hoping that it wasn't the last season. Was just wondering what tyler has up his sleeves for the next one.
