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).

    IMG the season finale was awesome. Who did Amanda shoot? My quest is probably nobody. I truly believe Jeffrey is going to come out and drive Veronica back to taking pills. I could go on and on. Mr. Perry January is to long. You leave us hanging like that! Please get back to work. LOL Anyway the season was great. Love seeing my own culture on TV ulitizing real story lines and not reality TV. Keep up the good work and we will all keep watching.

    I wish I could watch episodes on my computer because I can't always watch the night they are on & we don't have recording capability ;)

    Wow! Love this show! Please keep it coming! Would love to see Jeffrey get Melissa pregnant and fall in love. Not too late for his deliverance. Want to see Can dance and Hannah be a real mom and daughter duo to take Jim down. Can't wait see what happens

    I do understand that you have been working on this show constantly and building up all the drama that keeps us all coming back for more, but if we do have to wait for such a long time for the show to come back can you do us all a favor and have another marathon for 'The Haves and The Have Nots'?!

    Greetings! I'm sorry Y'all, but sistah girl gotta vent! Mr Perry and OWN, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, but why on God'S green earth do the fans of THATHN have to wait 6 months before we can watch The Haves And The Have Nots??!?? I am sure you are aware that the season's finale viewership was 3.49 million, and yet you make us WAIT 6 months!!! SAY IT ISN't SOOO!!! I don't know about anybody else, but I feel as though YOU ARE MAKING FUN OF THE FANS!!! You give us a little (10 episodes) tease. And before we can bat an eye, the show is going on hiatus. Is this how you will operate in the future, huh? If so, and I hope I'm wrong, but you are going to loose a lot of your audience...and then what....huh? May I make a suggestion? Since we have to wait 6 months, what about treating the fans with some two hour episodes. What do you think, Mr. Perry & OWN? Peace...MJ

      That's a good idea MJ. One two hour new episode every month until the beginning of the new season on January could work for me...3 thumbs up on that!

      I so agree. There has got to be one decent person and I would love for that to be David. Please let him remain faithful. I know it seems as though everybody cheats but some of don't and we'd like to be represented too.

      David is already tainted. Remember he wanted to do away (murder) with Candace because she was a threat to their political goals. If anything Hanna and Benny are the most decent and righteous characters on the show

    I absolutely love The Haves & Have Nots. Its the best soap opera in history. I get so mad when I have to wait a whole week to see it. I wish it would come on every day. My only problem is that its too slow. It takes them forever to talk & respond. That makes the show even shorter. Another thing is that I have no problem with g** people at all but Im tired of Jeffrey being confused. Either he's g** or he's not. I dont want to watch the whole show focusing on him & his sexuality. Let's move on already, that part is getting old & ignoring. Lets focus on Hanna & when she's gonna get a man. Or when Judge Cryer lies will come out about Wyatt. Besides that Tyler Perry you are awesome & I love u so much. Keep up the good work!!!

    I am beyond addicted to this show just started watching and can't really count how much sleep Ive lost. Maybe thats not a good thing but it hurts more to wake up in the morning not knowing what I missed. Tyler Perry have dropped jaws from day one and if God permits It, I want to one day show him my acting skills. Tyler you are awesome and truthfully my support for you is at its max. Keep up the good work!!!
