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 hope and pray that THATHN is not ending, but just going on hiatus. If that's what's going on, then I can understand that. But, in my humble opinion, then someone should let the viewers, fans, etc., know what's going on, please! Now moving on to my comments: Kudos to Hanna for kicking Celine's butt. It's too had that Jim had to intervene, cuz I wanted to see a knock down,n drag out, pulling hair kinda fight. I know Hanna is going through a hard time, but did she have be sooo mean Katherine. Katherine just wanted to be there for her and to help her in anyway that she could. Katherine is my favorite character. My least favorite character is Celine and Wyatt. Candace, well you just love to hate her. Like she says, she's a bad b***** Stay tune. Place...

    This show is the best on Television! The show is highly anticipated, the fans are excited and the ratings are soaring....but what is the point? Inconsistent programing, shortened seasons, unpredictable scheduling will be the demise of the whole operation. How many different ways can the fans state 'WE WANT MORE" We love you, and we love your work, but please dont take your loyal fan base for granted. People are not going to go from waiting on new episode with bated breath....to MONTHS of the shows abscence and no notification on when (or if) it shall return! As annoying as your inconsistent programing is for shows like For Better or Worse (with 6-7 month gaps in programing), this type of programing will not be tolerated by fans who have become addicted to a drama series. The Walking Dead airs CONSISTENTLY from October to March each year with ONE short season break. This consistency has been rewarded with 16 million viewers on the last episode alone. The Haves and Have Nots has the capacity to reach similar heights of success, but you MUST reward the loyalty of the viewers with a CONSISTENT season, CONSISTENT episode count, and CONSISTENT season breaks. To do anything less will lead to declining viewership/ratings and the detriment of the show. This is the best show on television, and is definitely (in my opinion) your BEST work. Tika Sumpter is an AWESOME talent and draws the masses!!!!! Please don't let inconsistent programing/scheduling destroy what you have worked so hard to create and what we enjoy so immensely!

    Mr. Perry love your show. However, on Tuesday's episode, 2/4/14 we see Candance barging into the operating room, demanding that the surgeon stop what he is doing NOW, to take care of her dying brother. This scene was unrealistic. My friends thought so too.

    The tremendous talents of Tyler Perry leaves me awestruck. My 86 year old mom, my twin and I are totally hooked on The Have and Have Nots! We call each other during commercial breaks to rave about the actors and writers. I hope to see a longer season and shorter breaks in between.

    Hello! Tyler Your show the have and the have nots I'm fastening to my seat to know what may happen next. I think Amanda will be admitted for mental treatment; Jeffery loves his mom so he may do whatever to please her about finding a girlfriend that if Candance don't push him hard enough that he's gay. Mrs.Cryer is very weary and about to have a breakdown that will lead to anti depressant pills if she don't hold it together. Mr Cryer will do anything to win Governor even if he has to sleep with his supportive election consultant. David and Veronica will do the usual make an attempt to cover up the gossip about Jeffery and the Cryers' son from murder homicide. Can't wait to see what else will happen. Tyler your a genius with this drama series I'm ready to see what happens next. Traverse, Mi.

    Let me say this first, I love, love, LOVE THATHN!!! I look forward to every Tuesday, which, in my humble opinion, takes way too long from one Tuesday to the next Tuesday. Okay, I'll confess, I'M TOTALLY HOOKED ON THIS SHOW!!! Now what's this I hear about there being only 3 shows left. Say it isn't so! Just what does that mean? After the first season ended, you had us wait four months, with baited breaths, for the second season to start. We've watched 6 episodes so far and there's only 3 episodes left and then what.... NO MORE OF THATHN!!! The ratings are GREAT! In fact, the second season has more viewership than last season and so I don't understand the reason for ending the show. HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO YOUR FANS??!!?? I can only speak for me, which goes without saying, but my heart is breaking, breaking, BROKEN!!!! Peace...

      Tyler Perry ....Fans are collectively disappointed re:short seasons and lack of consistent programig for THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS. On this website, on facebook, and twitter fans are ALL EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED (even outraged!) with the announcement of only three remaining episodes and WE ARE BEGGING for more. This show is so popular and so awesome that you could even have a hit show called "THE SHOW AFTER THE SHOW" and the ratings would be just as high as the show itself. You need to ride this wave all the way to the beach....not jump off the surf board now!!! Please don't let us down!

    I love the show and cant wait til the next episodes. My only comment is, don't let Benny die. Let the world know what the power of prayer can do. Hannah is earnestly praying to GOD, show the people what our God can do if we only ask him in prayer. God is the one that has the final say so. Talking about a shocker. Hannah has even proven to the Cryers that her God is able to do the impossible, something that money can't buy. Like transferring him to another hospital is gonna bring him back. As Hannah said, 'It in God hand and she believe he can come back. How powerful of a message it that. Go back to your roots Mr. Perry. Don't let them change you.

    OMG this weeks show was so good and it makes you want to see more and more. I really hope you are writing for the next shows you just can not take it off it is such a interesting show and it is such a great joy to watch it every Tuesday. You have really out done yourself as always. Your Mom is looking down on you and smiling and she is so very proud of you right now. I feel God has a lot of bigger plans for you and you will do good at anything you set out to do.
