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 don't care what anyone says - Ye3s it is a soap opera,, but thank you Tyler Perry for making it, and thank you Opera for airing it! If yu don't want to watch t, then don't - There are plenty other channels you can watch.

    Curious to why the woman who sold the car to Benny is with the social worker. Are they g** too? Why is Candace choking the social worker? Wondering will Candace find Quincy phone under her chair! The nosey neighbor probably will call the police on Quita.

    Things get even crazier when you take matters into your own hands. Which is what everyone is doing on the show. Next week oh boy!

    I like how TP is weaving the fallout from Benny's hit & run into the current story; Candace makes me sick with her constant scheming, and now Benny is tired of her dragging him into all her mess! Because of her, War is threatening to kill BENNY instead of her! War loves Candace and really doesn't want to hurt her, but she's such a liar and has really hurt him, as much as he's done for her, he doesn't trust her anymore. It's a little late for Benny to sue the Cryers for 'pain and suffering'; this is just another way for Candace to try to get some more Cryer $$$, the girl just won't quit! CATHERINE paid his bills b/c she felt bad over what her son did; Hannah should have told Benny all this, just like she should have told him the real reason Tony wanted to take him off life support! Yet she accuses Candace of lying! She's not very honest herself! If Benny does sue, Hannah & Catherine's friendship will be over. And there's still the matter of Q's dead body, Jeffrey, Candace and Benny's cover-up, and that d-mn Quita!!! *Am I the only one who can't stand to hear her talk?* So, all the secrets and lies are going to be coming out soon; the season is flying by and soon they'll be talking about the season finale, which I'm sure will be a real mind blower!!! **Right now, little Q is in the best possible place: the hospital!! Candace is full of cr-p and doesn't deserve to have him, and Hannah isn't handling things right. And btw: in the previews, HOW WAS HANNAH @WORK when everyone is still in jail?? I don't recall Catherine being released yet, so why was Hannah even there? Wyatt wouldn't have let her in, to see the house in that shape, w/him 'high' and that girl in there; the D.A. told him to get out before Catherine got home!

      I am sick of Candace as well. Cannot believe TP made social worker be a part of Candace plot to destroy her; she had nothing at all to do with the mess. Nobody's focusing on Quincy but his sister and Candace has moved on to another mess

    Why you don't stream your shows? Please consider using Hulu or Netflix, please!

    I have been watching this show from the beginning...but after last two episodes of War (not showing details, but to use your imagination) raping Candance has been a little too much. Candance plays her role well showing how uncomfortable and trapped she feels of this man basically raping her.

    The scene that David played last night with maggie in bed, what a sexy man. He was so full of passion and need. After all his wife Veronica is to crazy to see what go man she has. I can't wait to see what Tyler has for Veronica with her crazy self. What happen to Jeffery baby mom? They all should be in Jail. I suspect that the DA is Mrs. Cryer sister by her father.

      Wow, Now that's an interesting twist. What makes u think that?

    • Flashkat Bham, Al. #2170520

      I like that idea with the da and Catherine being sisters. Use It!

      The new episodes air at 9:00pm every Tuesday. The re-runs air before 9:00pm to refresh your memory and then they replay after the new episode starting at 10:00pm. The new episode replays at 12:00am midnight!!

    Former Viewer, don't get caught up in it. This is no different than any other soap opera show. Erica Kane manipulated every person and slept with whomever. it is the way of the soap opera.
