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).

    So upset over return of the haves and the have nots. Too many commercials. At 9:44 you showed 16 commercials that took up 6 minutes to name a few. Give us what we've been waiting for. No reason why you couldn't reveal that Amanda shot herself.

    I am only 20 years old and this show gives me life frfr, missed this episode due to work but I will be watching when I make it home !!

    Watch the show tonight, 1-6. Greatly disappointed. Waited to see who got shot, and all I got was a bunch of run-around. It was to slow. Can't understand how rich people forget to turn on their alarm system. How many people do you know that would chose to live in a hotel rather then come home when they are rich and live in a mansion. Not one person in that show is happy. I waited for the new season and this was all I got. Will Not Be Watching Anymore.

    Tyler Perry, I don't believe you did that to us. Are you going to make us wait until the third episode? All that build up, I'm not watching HAHN no more until next week.

    Tyler How could you do this to us and make the viewers wait at least another week for this mystery to unfold ? Well I said it's going to be Wyatt now I think it's going to be a alcohol/ drug overdose or a suicide ? Mr. Perry am I right ?

    Very disappointed in the new season. Moving very slowly slower than last year. I am quickly losing interest. Pick up the pace!

    Hello Mr. Perry, OK YOU ARE WRONG FOR THAT! You did not answer the burning question I have had for months! How long are you going to keep us guessing? I am not going to say for those who have not seen the show yet, but you know what I mean! LOL I can tell this season of HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS is going to be something else! I can't wait to see more. Keep writing and I will keep watching! Anika

    Really upset and annoyed that its not on in canada and that I have posted on almost every piece of social media from Twitter to Facebook groups and not a single soul will acknowledge or answer me as to when I will get to watch the show and its depressing my american friends are all watching it and getting to spoil the episodes on me and I have no clue when I will get my turn... its completely turning me off of someone I considered one of the greatest minds in show business. So much for me being a huge fan.. can't even appreciate the mans work now.
