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).

    It blows me away to see everybody lying about everything and going out of their way to withhold the truth from the people they supposed to love and care about. There is no trust and truth anywhere in the HAHN! The entire cast is either deceitful, wicked, or self-absorbed. They will do anything to get their way. Landon seem to be the only trueexception so far. But I believe in Karma and can't wait to see what comes around goes around!

      in the real world there is no trust or truth you lie to get out of situtions,you lie to save the day or save someones pain,,,,truth is tomorrow is not promised,,truth is even a minister or nun will do wrong,,,truth is u cant cant no one cuz we all was born to do sin ,,I look at the world like on a plane ,,to trust the pilot to get us to safety,now its a 50 50 chance will make it out of trust or a surgeon 50 50 u will wake up,,so u are in a fantasy world about all this trust and truth...I,m glad tyler is keeping it real he goes to far sometimes like all those thugs on one man,,they don't do that in the hood,,and Veronica would have been seriously hurt by now,,funny how she isbold to get in a mansface like that but is scared of quincy,,scared to stand in the hood to wait for a cab,,,one thing I notice about the hood in the daytime they don't mess with black women,,rape or insult them and that's the truth

    Tyler.....My nerves!!!!!....Stop It!!... Lawd this show is making my nerves CRAZY! The crazier thing is that I keep tuning in .....and I'll be tuned in on next week. Love You Mr. Perry and Multiplied Blessings to YOU is my prayer.

  • Rae Dallas

    Does anyone know the name and artist of the song that was playing while Candace and Oscar was in the whirlpool?

  • Michele Ca

    Tyler, I love the story line, but the actors keep repeating the same line over and over. I don't mind that as much as the music. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE turn down the music so I can hear what they are saying. Hannah and Benny are the best!

  • Sassy U.S.

    PLEASE....let Veronica get wha'st coming to her by stripping her of all assets & revealing every illegal and dirty thing she's ever done! (Jeffery would be the perfect candidate for this deed) PLEASE...give David a new set of "balls" as he is as dense as a doorknob regarding dealing or not dealing with that evil, crazy wife of his. It's obvious Oscar, Candace's love interest is Jim's plant and plot to get his money back from her. Let Candace bust him out before he snatch all Jim's money back. Just let her keep it. That's what Jim gets for fooling around in the first place! REVEAL...Jeffery didn't get that little tramp pregnant. Come on, you know he should have requested a blood test!!! Getting back to his gutless father, he should leave Veronica and develop a relationship with Maggie. Either give Benny a brain and common sense or weave some blond hair on his head because he is so naive!!!) PLEASE...off (as in kill) Quincy Sr., and Celine. Make either Celine or her oldest son the murder of Amanda - motive: jealously. Another revenge idea for Veronica, let Hanna beat the h*** out of her for screwing her weak-minded son. Once Kathryn finds out Veronica had Wyatt raped (in jail), let her beat the h*** out of Veronica too. FINALLY....PLEASE increase the seasonal episodes.! They're too short!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes...I know this is fiction, but I love show. I haven't missed an episode since it first aired.

    I love this program and can't wait for it each week but, usually the music is so loud that it drowns out the dialog. Is there anything that can be done about that ?

    • Michelle Bronx, ny #2141864

      Don't know why some hear the back ground music too loud. Sounds great to must be location. I didn't notice any song during the hot tub scene I was so fastened to the story line. I had to replay to hear what the hype was over the song. Tyler great show this can go a number of ways. Verona can kill Maggie she came to her house I guess to say David running for governor. Crazy veronica says there are no witnesses. She may think Maggie want to be the governor wife and kill her. Or Celine older son walk on Jim on top of his mother and kill Jim. Oscar die in a plane crash, he told Candace you act like you not going to see me again. I believe he take the millions but leave the 500,000. Katherine die from the cancer leave her inheritance to Hannah who took care of her. David find out Maggie bought up the idea of Quincy being let out. Benny find his sister a liar finally he went to her job. Jeffrey One night drunken sex partner miscarried...Blood bath confuse David instead of verona. Jeffery tell Wyatt where the car is and remove it. Free from Ronica clutches
