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).

    Tyler, The Have and The Have Nots I loved this show. I believe that this is the best one yet, although I liked all of your work. I think that Carlos will be leaving the show. Keep up the good work, I have popcorn ready for tonight.

    Mr. Tyler Perry please please do not make us wait 6 months, we are all ADDICTED...we know that you can put this together in 30 day. We only allow you to take a 30 day BREAK....(smile) your ADDICTED fan

      I look forward to tonight. The Cryers and the Harringtons will use legal technicality to get from under going to jail. Veronica will end up in a wheelchair that way she will need the people she looks down on to take care of her. Benny will lose the tow shop but Candace will be able to sue Wyatt for hitting him. He will be able to live his dream at a later date. Dream deferred. I really hope Candace and Oscar will find each other again. He can reach her. I believe she cares about him and he cares about her too. H*** Tyler I will write the story and the dialogue for free, and I will have all kinds of pitfalls for them. Adult ones nothing nasty. I hope if she has to move in with her mother it is not for long. Hannah will try to use her grandson to raise Candace. To force her to go to church. It will not work. Candace has a mind of her own, and not going to church does not mean the person bad. I do not go to church. H*** I live in a farming town. I just read my bible and catch a ride sometimes with a friend when I feel the need to go. I do hope Quincy will run into the burn up house to laugh at Hannah and the building fall in on him. That way he dies on his own hand.

    Can you make these episodes available for purchase through Google Play and Amazon?

    • Mom in Md #2143017

      I agree can you please make your shows available other than through the cable network google, hulu, sling or something. I am truly needing to cut the cable strings, they are just to expensive and customer unfriendly The only reason I am holding out is your shows and Opra's network OWN, I need cable for nothing else

    • Earnestine Larry Carson, Ms. #2143707
