Description:

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).

    Former Viewer, don't get caught up in it. This is no different than any other soap opera show. Erica Kane manipulated every person and slept with whomever. it is the way of the soap opera.

      Right! Even if she wants to stay a maid, can't she work for someone else knowing what Wyatt did to her son and that little girl and as proud as her character is. She might as well be saying "the Cryers is good white folk" (in my so-called slave voice) Please!!!

    Officially done with this show!!! All of the women of color are portrayed as overbearing and manipulative. Sick to death of not-so-subtle way that anyone who does not agree with homosexuality is seen as a hatemonger. There is no representation of black love, and the final insult is having the one decent black man (David) end up with the blond! ENOUGH!!!

      I agree....I have loved watching this show and I've been so proud to see how David stood by his wife, for better or for worse he took it,yes Veronica is not only trifling, but beyond crazy...but you can't allow other people's action to change who you ...are I was just thinking, here is a man who truly honours his marriage vows...and then he sleeps with the blond!!!like really....that made me cry...I was deeply hurt by that.......like really Tyler? that's how David is going out?....wow!!!!....now she's going to be pregnant, because you done know she is not going to take no morning after pill..this chick is so desperate for a man that she is willing to be used by a man who doesn't even want her...seriously how low can you get. Tyler I love you, but trust me, I don't like what you doing to Veronica..it's not right..I have no respect for that. You know what I just caught my myself..and I realize..I'm in way too deep...I'm out...good luck to you...

      I was really hurt too when David slept with Blondie. Not all because of who she is but I thought he was stronger than that.

    .....and are the kryers the only family that needs a maid. Hannah's character is a little too destitute and desparate in 2016 for me.

    Love the show Tyler. I do have to say though, it's slipping a little on what makes sense. Ie. Hannah not being told by the social worker about Qs medical condition and her not calling an ambulance instead counting her $8 over and over for a taxi. Just sayin. No way I would stop watching it though but please consider more consistent realism.

      I agree. Some things are just a little too much outside the realms of reality. She has a son with a tour truck service and she so self righteous that she rather run down the street with a sick child. And what was the other hospital doing that they did not know that this child has lupus?

    Candace is working my last nerve and so is Jeffrey! He's acting like a stupid, love-struck p-nk, and her scheming is getting old and tired; I have no more sympathy for her! As for Hannah, maybe now she'll take her b*** to Benny's and get little Q in a clean, safe environment! She never bothered to ask the Dr. about the name of his medicine, asthma medication, or anything! GMAB!! Let Veronica go home and get shot, David! And PLEASE get rid of Quita!!!!

    Hi Tyler. Please assist, I am battling to comprehend the dynamics of your industry, I mean we are here in undeveloped countries looking up on our black brothers who are making it in the Americas, but some things just don't make sense. My worry is,the only time we hope to watch a black actor on the big screens in Cinema it is always the usual people, like yourself, Samuel L Jackson, Will Smith, and other few more guys who have also been on the screens for a long time. We don't get to see new black talent showing off the skill in some nice thriller or action movies. I mean it seems as if it is impossible for a black guy to act hero role. It is so sad to allow our kids to be raised knowing that only white actors can play nice action. Our only hope is Will Smith and them those that have already. Ace it big in the industry. It is sad how put of 8 cinema rooms, one could only find two rooms showing black actors movies. I personally don't want to believe that we are incapable of producing such actors, I just think there is just a lot of toxic tension amongst people who should be promoting our young stars... I don't want to believe that there is no some kind of black actor's forum in the Americas hoping to promote black actors, I just think we are just enjoying this glorification of white people in their movies. Here in Africa, we also want to see the Jason Stathan, the Jonny Depp and them of black people. I am pleading to you to work with other actors who made it there and promote our young black actors.... I am certain there is a lot of action and thrillers our boys and girls can take up. WE ARE JUST TIRED OF WATCHING WHITE Herroes ON OUR SCREENS....

    After Benny came out of the hospital, he was aggressive, tough and even "hard". Totally different from season 1. I thought it would have been addressed- chalked up to the accident.did I miss something? This season he is back to the old Benny like nothing happened.
