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).

    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.

  • Andre

    Seriously, just like everyone else - we need The Haves and Have Nots On Demand, Hulu, Netflix, or at least available to buy online from Google Play or iTunes!! Why is this even an issue?!

    • Toni New Orleans, LA #2146687

      Andre, I agree. I was just looking to see if I could purchase all the episodes of this show. I love to be able to sit back and watch a complete season versus week to week and today I had no luck with finding this series for sale. I'll check on my Roku box and see if there any option's available. I'd like to catch up then I'll likely add it to record in the future. If you figure something out please reply. I'll be checking back.
