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 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. .

    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?

  • 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:)
