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).

      Hello Mr Perry, I love your "Haves and the have Nots", but how could you leave us hanging like that. The last one I saw was S3 E11 - 48 Hours that aired 03/05/2016. Was that the finale for season 3?. Can you post somewhere when the Ep will be shown again? May God continue to bless you, you're such a talented man. Also is there any new movies coming out!!! Sincere Fan

  • fei Houston Tx

    Hi I would love to watch the show but I do not subscribe to cable or satellite. Is it available by subscription through amazon or some other service?

      who is your favorite character from the haves and the have nots lena evans? how you have to be to watch the haves and the have nots

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2179659

      At one point one of my favorite characters was Benny, mainly because of his love and sense of devotion and loyalty toward his mother and Candace; which it is beginning to look like neither of them appreciate much! And even though Veronica appears to be the most evil of everyone on the show,she is in my opinion one of the most interesting and complex characters. No one can beat this woman because in order to obtain her present status,she has overcome every obstacle that can be thrown at anyone living or dead,and she has survived!She is genuinely intelligent . As a black woman, I would love to see Tyler use his writing skills to further develope or show at least one or 2 redeeming qualities in either Veronica or Candice. But for now Veronica is evil to the core.! Got,s to admit tho- she makes the show what it is; Fun to watch!

    • Dominique lashay yancey 2700 felicity drive Cincinnati, Ohio #2180048

      if there was a fight between veronica and katheryn who do you think going to win?

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2180091

      Answer for Dominique: If Veronica and Catherine got in a fight, who would win? First off,Katherine comes from a background of people who had centuries old wealth and maintained their assets and power by using the most ruthless tactics. So Katherine was born into money and somewhat of a sense of family structure even if it was dysfunctional. Now lets move on to Veronica who survived an impoverished childhood from the hood.She has obviously overcome some almost impossible or unimaginable odds in order to have achieve what she has. During this process both she and David have worked and studied their way through Ivy League law schools and have positioned themselves into Katherines world.She is therefore able to operate between these two worlds quite skillfully as is demonstrated by her sharp intelligence. Now Katherine on the other hand is ruthless also: but only when she is pushed. Also she is only able to operate in her world. Therefore,Veronica would w*** the floor up with poor Katherine before she even knew she had been hit the first time Because Veronica on her journey out of the hood seems to have lost her heart completely. There is no balance in her. Have you noticed that no matter how bad both Jim and Katherines parenting skills are,that they still have a heart for their children. Veronica does not have this ability for love!

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive cincinnati,ohio #2180152

      i want jim and catherine to get back together don't you?

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive cincinnati,ohio #2180154

      if there was a fight between david and jim who do you think will win that?

    • Lena Evans Flint,Mi. #2180238

      Again, is a reason that David keeps telling Jim to back off. You dont want none of this! He and Veronica both are as evil as the devil! If Jim were to fight him one on one he would have some cold blooded moves up his sleeve. In other words man ,I'm from the hood,and will cut you every which way before you even blink and if that doesnt finish you off ,then I have connections from your world that will take care of the rest. Both David and Veronica dont have any balance when they get mad! So he and Jim are better off not getting into a fight! And yeah it would be nice to see Katherine and Jim show a little more love for each other!

    Has the finally been uploaded to on demand yet I have seen all the other episodes

  • MsMentor NYC

    Where the heck is my show? Get it together Tyler & Oprah. Squash the B.S. Fans are fine with the writing as is. Oprah please stay in your lane. Thanks.

    • DD #2179017

      I was wondering what was going on with the show!

  • Callie Green Miami,Fl

    Why is the show not coming on? i thought the new series just started back. .

  • M. san diego ca

    I'd like to see the storyline between Jim and Catherine change up a bit. For example; I'd like to see Catherine and Jim be affectionate towards each other. I know that Jim has had a lot of affairs in the past but it would be nice to see the passion between these two. Kinda getting tire of hearing the " I hate you so much and that's why I am not gonna divorce you etc".. I think that there is a deeper reason why Catherine does not leave Jim. Could it be love? Mr. Perry would you consider changing up the script between these two?

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive cincinnati, ohio #2179372

      i think catherine and jim should get back together

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive #2179558

      let tyler perry know he should change up the storyline i think catherine and jim should make love

  • Angela n kortz

    Why hasn't the show aired in last 2 weeks

  • Kumster dc

    This show is the BEST. Yes, it's ridiculous, raunchy, sick, and unbelievable...BUT THAT's WHY IT WORKS FOR ME!! I deal with people who share their life's darkest pains (I also have my own), and the truth is; you would be SHOCKED to know of what goes on with folk. I would rather be watching the mess than living it. I am born-again, love the Lord, and I know JESUS ROCKS!!! .........Now, what happened and where is my show?

  • Tamara White Houston

    It is time for Hanna to have a dark secret that come to light. Candace need to take the bar exam and let her raise her child. It's time for Hanna to mend things with her daughter for the sake of her grandson. Kill War off please!

    • lorraine #2177924

      Oh, no! War stays!!! If Candace ever got her act together and quit being such a b-tch, she and War would be a good couple, and she could change him for the better! Despite him being really p.o.'d @her right now for scamming him, he DOES love her and would do anything for her...but she's such a liar and schemer, she 'played' him one time too many and really hurt him, and now he wants her to pay!

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive cincinnati,ohio #2179376

      hey tyler perry i think on the season finale benny should save candy and him and warlock get into a fight and someone dies. but will happened if quincy comes back

    • Chocolate child Hampton, Virginia #2190365

      What makes you think that Candy Cane owes that stupid, devilish War any more money than the 50K that she paid his stupid JACKASS!! He was happy when she paid it to him. They didn't have a contact or a formal agreement on the amount that he was supposed to be paid. Where was he when Candy had to sell and degrade her body to get that $7 million?? Leave my Candy Alone and let her be her:)

  • rita California
