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).

    the actress that plays Hannah deserves an Oscar. I missed last weeks & am watching it now. I keep crying right along with her, she is so realistic. I love this show!!!!. I can`t believe the season finale is here already.

    HIP-HIP-HURRAY, Tuesday is FINALLY HERE!!! Of course I have mixed emotions. On the one hand I'm elated cuz THATHN is coming on tonight, but on the other hand, I'm deeply saddened cuz it's the last show of the season. Geez, why tease us with 10 episodes, then BOOM no more episodes until god-only-knows how long we will have to wait for the new episodes. Like I stated in a previous post, I hope that Mr. Perry will be so kind as to inform the fans when the show will resume. In my opinion, he owes us that much. Peace....

    This is the best show on TV since "Dallas" and "Knots Landing" back in the day. I love this show. I rush home on Tuesday evenings to watch Candace. OMG she is so BOLD! I have loved Crystal Fox since she was on "In the Heat of the Night". Tyler Perry keep doing your thing; you are the BOMB.com.

    Tonight is the end of the season and I'm so sad. I look forward to this show. All the actors are great. I started watching for Tika saw her on One life to live, she is really good, and Hannah is to wonderful for words. My only complaint is it's over for now and I have to wait. I could watch again on demand but that has really old last season episodes. So Mr. Perry when will this be back? Since it's going well can't you up the budget and show more shows? Either way I'll be watching.

    Dear, I really love this show, when is the 3rd seasoning begining.

    Great show! I've watched both seasons and enjoyed them. On the Tyler Perry Show, actors Aaron Oconnell (Wyatt) and Gavin Houston (Jeffrey) recently spoke about their characters. They do a fine job, by the way. But what got me was the almost-kissing scene they talked about. TV has come a long way, but still there's discomfort on the part of 2 straight pro. male performers simply kissing, touching lips-- and they really didn't even do it! And listening to that, one must wonder whether q**** men who play or have played characters that kiss or simulate making love to women on stage or screen have the same anxiety. I would bet that most don't. The reason: there's still a stigma attached to homosexuality. One day there may come a time when men kissing each other on prime-time TV won't be such a big deal, but we're not there yet.

      Is Jeffrey related to babyface? He looks alot like him when he was younger

    While the story line keeps you guessing, the acting is only mediocre and could possibly be due to the slowness of the scripting. As far as anyone expecting Christians to be perfect...that is not the case. Christians are striving to have a closer relationship with God, but they are still human beings with all the same flaws as everyone else. Candace must have hurt her mother tremendously at one time and her mother knows how devious she can be. Many of the rich and powerful are so lacking in morality and basic goodness....sometimes they are the poorest people I know.

      While I agree with the fact the fact that the scenes drag out a little too long, I absolutely love the show and am a very loyal fan of TP. Even if some of the acting may seen mediocre to some people, the storyline is so good that I didn't notice. I would like to see shorter scenes and more show. I can't wait until May.

    Let messy this, on the last Tyler Perry Show, I hope that someone from the audience will ask Mr. Perry when does the next episodes will start. Or, hopefully. Mr. Perry will mention it. I don't think it's fair to keep the fans in limbo. WE DESERVE TO, IF NOT ABSOLUTE, BUT APPROXIMATELY WHEN THE NEXT EPISODES WILL RESUME! I love Hanna dearly, but what in the world has Candace done to her that would make Hanna treat Candace so mean??!!?? That story needs to come out. I thought that parents should love their children unconditionally and that would include you, too, Ms Veronica! So who is going to bail Hanna out of jail? When Candace mention something about dying babies, does that mean her baby is dead? Hmm, who stole Benny from the county hospital? Katherine, it would appear, to be the likely source since she wants to move him to a private hospital, but you never know. We know that Hanna told Detective Byron that Wyatt Cryer was the one who ran Benny over and since Det. Byron is the cop that Jim hired to follow Hanna around, who turned in Wyatt? I'm just asking. Peace....
