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).

    One of your best shows ever and I love the twists and turns, your are definitely off the chain... If my husband gets home before I do at the end of the day he makes sure to put the TV on OWN. We have got him hooked... :) LOL

      Once you start watching Have And The Have Not. Anyone gets hooked. That show is the best show on cable. Tyler always brings it. He keeps you guessing and wondering what is going to happen next. I'm a fan for life.

      Keep Quincy in the picture and the da is going to far

  • Jerome Kentwood,Michigan

    What will happen to quincy,sense his alive and not dead.

    • lorraine #2164877

      If he's still hanging on, then Candace will have to 'finish him off' and be done w/him for good! It's time for Quincy to be out of the picture! Enough of him!

    • Cheryl Bronx, NY #2164901

      I think Quincy should be in for one more season. He needs to get his b*** kick some more.

    • lorraine #2164949

      Nope...he's finally dead! But now Candace has a BIG problem...War is on the 'warpath' b/c she screwed him over! I know he digs Candy, BUT, he's still a thug! When he threw her up against the wall and told her, "B--ch, I will kill you!" we now see another side of him. As much as he's helped Candace out, he's gonna want more $$; and he sees Q's dead body on the floor...he'll probably blackmail her to keep quiet about it for more $$$; little does he know, she's broke since Oscar cleaned out her account, but he won't believe that! She has really gotten herself in a jam! ***I wonder if little Q has sickle cell anemia!!! That d*** Hannah!!! Something's gonna happen to that baby and he's gonna end up in the hospital deathly ill! He's gonna get taken away from her b/c her head is so hard; pride goes before a fall, and Hannah is too prideful! She means well, but sometimes that's not enough!

    I think Jeffry n Quency is the same person and if so he's doing a great job! Tyler will you ever reveal the true identity of "Quency?"

    • jerri florida #2164783

      no not the same person...physically that's clear. but I'm excited to see what happens next.

    • Cheryl Bronx, NY #2164902

      I agree with you Jerri. I don't think they are the same person.

    • lorraine #2165089

      They are NOT the same person! 'Quincy's' name is Islam Medina; 'Jeffrey's' name is Gavin Houston!!!

  • lorraine

    where can I watch previous seasons of the show?

  • sandra Madrid

    I was crushed when my lover of three years left to be with another woman. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I reached out to the Internet for help. I wasted so much time and effort trying to get it back until I hit on the real thing. And it is her final magic. You were different from the rest - you are the diamond in the rough. Thank you from the bottom of my soul! I am extremely happy. I hope God blesses you, as you have to help me get my love back, to visit him in () can be of great help to all of you.

  • Angela United States

    Isn't Jeffrey adopted?

    I like series, some thing just are not realistic though. I think while Hannah should be upset with Candace, I think she should see the new house and the garage given to Benny as God taking something bad and turning it into something good ;as long as hard work and honesty is only utilized going forward, take it as a Godsend. Especially since she has lost everything in the fire.

    • Gwen Apex,N.C. #2164035

      I agree with you on this. I think that if Hannah believe and trust that Benny will do right, God will bless them even more. I also think that the Lord will touch Candice in some ways too. She will still do her,but make some changes in her life.

  • Shanqueria Atlanta ga

  • Michelle Bryant Newark, NJ

    • GEM #2163949

    • Cheryl Bronx, NY #2164907

      Don't watch the show. With all the corny shows on TV today. It's a pleasure to have a show on like The Haves and The Have Nots. Tyler won't lose anything if you stop watching. The same goes for anyone else who doesn't like the show. Watch something else.
