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 have watched the Have and Have Nots since the beginning and amazed each week. I am very entertained and the characters are great. I was sad that Amanda was killed off but loved the Quincy storyline. I can't wait till next season begins. I look at this show to be entertained and nothing more. I am really tired of the soapboxes and negativity. Tyler you are a really great writer and director and you are truly Blessed. Thank you for everything, the plays, the movies and the shows. I will say I'm not too crazy about "if Loving you is Wrong" that one is too full of drama and I just want to slap some common sense in a couple of the characters. I can't watch that one. Love you Tyler.

      The last episode I ever saw was when the Harringtons got arrested then nothing. I never even heard that was the season finale. Was it? If not, what happened?

      When the Criers & Harringtons got arrested was the season finale. It said it was in TV Guide. I just read that it is set to return in January 2016, but I didn't see a specific date, although I assume it will be on a Tuesday as its always been. TV Guide is my key to keeping up with the episodes.

    REALLY LOVE this show. It is hard to wait for it to return. Actors are the best and well fitted for their characters. Mr. Perry has a flair for this type of show,as well as If Loving you Is Wrong. I am hooked on both of these shows. Need more Tyler Perry on tv.
