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'm a Tyler and Haves and Have Not fan/supporter. I can appreciate the various story lines. However, drama is generally thought to be suspenseful and fast paced. Tyler take note! Question- is the goal not to cultivate and captivate the audience and increase viewership? Yes, it is true what they say about "short attention spans!" I'll keep watching this season.........

    Entirely too many commericals!!! 5 Minutes of watching the show and then 11 commericals every time!!! I am getting sick of watching about 25 minutes of a 60 minute show. If this keeps happening then I will just find something else to watch!

      I record it & FF through the commercials. You're right - there are SSSOOO many - just like all shows on OWN!

    On tonight's show (2/3), if Wyatt had talked to ME like he did Katherine, he would be in the hospital! No way would I allow a child I brought into this world to talk to me like that! He's an ungrateful junkie, lying snot, and while it's mostly JIM'S fault for enabling him, Katherine has been more than willing to go along w/it to 'protect' her son; now she sees what a monster they've created! Again, Jim REFUSED to get Amanda the help she needed, despite Katherine's warnings, and look what happened! And with Amanda gone, and all the dirt he has on Celine, Jim, etc., Wyatt's going to be h-ll to deal with! He just might derail Jim's campaign for spite and maybe turn himself in to the cops and confess what he did, just to humiliate the family! Katherine may just end up back in the hospital w/a stroke from all this stress. But needless to say, the campaign is DEAD!

    Hey Mr Perry, I love the show,By me being a black g** woman. Mr Perry you give Veronica too much air time you know like I know a black woman wouldn't let her have it by now, that mouth on her and her husband David give him some balls.I know he's rich with money black men have balls.candice has all thel ball.And this episodewas really boring it took u 3 weeks for you to let us know that Amanda killed her self.you are dragging it out now please come on you are a black man..please tell me u did not go in to a white man body. From Sabbath Ceruti...

    Okay I'm making my post before the HAHN''s are off. Quincy was supposed to show up and look for Candace-that did not happen. Jim is on the way to the campaign, how long does it take for the city bus to take Jim downtown? Jim should be able to hop off that bus and finds someone that he knows. There is too much time wasted on Jim and Candace and now the show is almost off- we will have to see what we saw next week -Catherine falling out at the campaign. The best drama is when Veronica took Landon to the hoop when she fired off and answered those g** right questions- Landon forgot he was not dealing with a kitten he is dealing with a BIG CAT-go Veronica.

      Is it true that there are only 5 episodes in this season? That really stinks! As of tonight, we're only into the next day since last July! Now there's only 1 episode left until the next season? There's no way people will continue to watch a show that creeps along at that pace & its too bad cuz IMO it used to be a good show! Like other's here suggested, I'm going to start watching Empire on Wednesdays. I've heard it moves along really fast.

    • lorraine #2062112

      Tonight would have been the 5th episode, so I guess that was a rumor; they showed previews for next week's show. Tonight's epi was pretty good! NOW...where is Quincy?! I guess we'll have to wait for next season for him to show up looking for Candace; look how long it took to discover Amanda! *I sure like Landon, and I wish Jeffrey would get a clue and get w/him instead of that stupid girl Veronica keeps pushing on him! He's starting to get on my nerve being such a wimp! He's a college-educated, grown man, WHY doesn't he have his own bank account, his own place, his own car, so he won't be under Veronica's thumb? He can get his OWN job! Candace is right...he acts like he's 5 years old!

    Am Karen Tanya from Scotland. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. isobo by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.isobo . So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.lsobo for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.
