Description:

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 do so hope that Candace gets away and becomes the one that has a hand in the Cryer downfall.

    I would like to say, that the current direction that the show is going is somewhat disturbing. 1st in the upcoming episode, this girl tries to sleep with Jeffery. I have problems with that, because I want to know, why is it everybody feels that the g** character can be changed? I would really hope that Veronica, Judge Cryer, the police officer trying to cozy up to Hana all get what they deserve. I would also hope that the current story line at least has some resolution before the new season starts. I would also hope that Jeffery finally gets some balls and puts his mother in her place.

      @Linwood, Great post, I feel exactly same as you, Jim, Veronica,and black cop who Hannna thinks is her friend all get whats coming to them. I'm hoping that Candace isn't dead, and I hope Hanna, Benny and Candace take them all down. I love this show, but Candace can't die, she's one of the main characters, she's doing a excellent job, I feel so bad for Jeffrey,hope he tells his mom about her hateful self.

    PLEASE let someone find Candace! I hate that two-faced detective Byron; I hope he toes down w/Jim! I thought Amanda would come out of the room w/her gun and shoot Jim, but I guess she'll wait and get them all together in the same house and do it! Benny's going to be more aggressive this season, not the too-good-to-be-true 'good son'; he's gonna sow some oats, and find out about Candace; Hannah should have told him about his good for nothing father and what he tried to do! Jeffrey should get a wake-up call from having to deal w/this stupid girl! NOW...it was good to see 'Ronica scared for a change! I like Quincy, and I hope he finds Candace before someone else does. I'll bet she's learned her lesson, messing w/Jim! But I hope she gets some revenge on him for what he did to her!

    I enjoyed the episode "Vulnerable" except Benny role in the hospital, was that of a spoil Momma boy. When are we going to make the son a Daddy's loving boy? I enjoy the series, keep them coming!

    Tyler, did you kill of Tika or is she still alive? I hope not because she gives it that little twist of bitterness that makes the show just right! I would love to know what is next on the soap opera of deceit, deception, and drama!!
