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).

    Hi, My name is Thando and i am addicted to The haves and the have nots. This is the best thing that ever happened to my television. In S.A. we have only watched season 1, and season 2 is delaying to show. I would like to know where i can buy both seasons because i cant wait for them to show it on tv as they are taking forever.

    Everyone keeps talking about the show. I started DVR it on the 12 the episode but I didn't want to watch them till I saw the first. Ive been searching for 2months trying to find out how can I see the old episodes starting from first episode.

      Hi! Check on OWN on Tuesday nights (from 7-1a.m.) they show reruns episodes from last season and this season of The Haves And The Have Nots. Btw, check your local listings for the correct times. In your area. I hope this helps. Peace....MJ

      If you have Xfinity, they have the first 21 episodes On Demand. I'm mad because they haven't put the other ones on there because I just became a fan yesterday and I can't find the later episodes before the finale.

  • Rainbow Chatsworth

    I absolutely love this show. I hate when it goes off. I hope it stays on forever.

    • Renee Greenville, SC #1939918

      I love this show, it's the best soap opera OWN. I hate that season 2 went off. I rushed home every Tuesday night after work so that I could catch the beginning. I can't wait for season 3. Tyler Perry you have got it going on with all of your scripts. I want to congratulate you and tell you to keep them coming. And to everyone out there that watched both seasons and want to talk trash about it. If you thought it to be so horrible why did you watch both seasons. I love it and can't wait for May.

    I think that Candace's son should come in the show and his name should be Aaron and he should have beef with Veronica and he should also want revenge on the cryersfor wyatt running over Benny
