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).

    Last season, EXCELLENT! This season, started off not good for me...and still my head is a bit in the air as what the heck is this new plot. Very pissed about Candace's role...she is the Show! It will be interesting to see if she survives and how if she does...Shot in the head at close range, she should be dead! And if she is, that's it for me!!!!! Seriously, does the White man get away with it? I sincerely hope that Benny is clear from being in his coma state...I kind of see a relapse coming...it happened too fast, I mean his conscious state. I know that YOU know what you are doing, keeping us all in tune! Over-all, you're writing your b*** off. Thanks for find you and sharing yourself with Us. Inner Peace,

    Will Hanna find out that Bryon is giving information to Jim about everything that she tell about Jim, and Wyatt? I love Candace. I want her to survive and whip Momma Rose ass!

    I can't people are really believing Candace is going to die. Really! It will most likely be a blank shot. Tyler knows Candace is a main focal point of the show. All of the cast are great except for Salina to me. A lot of post are saying to get rid of Veronica, Mr Cryer & the cop. Really they are what makes the show more interesting. If the show didn't have drama, it wouldn''t be as good as it is. I just hope David does not become involved with the campaign manager. At anyrate so far it is a good show. Kudos to all the cast!!

    Excellent! Can't wait until next Tuesday to find out if Candace survives the fatal shot. If she does, it will be another miracle! Thank you Tyler Perry!

    Don't worry everyone, Candace is not killed off the show. She is like JR from Dallas. This is just b*** to keep you guessing. I really liked the scene with Veronica and Quincy. Veronica displayed toughness, street with a classy chaser, and reality (scared s-less). Jeffrey really needs to stand his ground and tell his mother where to go and give her directions in case she doesn't know how to get there. Hanna needs someone in her life and let Benny live his life.

    Maybe Tyler is showing us what can happen to young girls who play on everyone and wont get a job to be independent, reliable upon themselves, conscientious of family, etc ............If Candy is dead.

    How can Candice be dead when Quincy is looking for her?

  • candice Las Vegas

    Candance can't be died!! She go's I go ...

    I'm not sure that I am so against Candas getting killed although she was A great Character. If she is gone the show would suffer a great loss. However, I think that if she does come back and somehow end up in a hidden hospital some place, her brother should be able to take over and some how be a part of taking down Wyatt's dad!

  • Joe Daniels Miami
