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).

    Can someone please tell me how I can start this serious from season 1, episode 1? OWN on demand only starts at season 4. I don't know why anyone would want to start a series from season 4... there's so much missing. Thanks

      You can't. See if you can find a friend who can catch you up

  • Louise Parnell

    I want to know the lines where David tells Jim about being his enemy

  • diane o Mi.

    Jim/Jeff spitting out the truth for David in front of Veronica in that cell was to rich for words...I loved every second! Laughed thru the second & third watching too...Please let Kathrine's moment with Veronica be even better - I'm begging you here....Give RL another highlight moment for all the false friendship & BS thrown her way.

    Why is Candace brother telling all her business. Was her brother raised in the hood because he forgot all his street lessons. Why does he let his mother talk to him as if he is 12 years old? What's up with the dialogue? For example: Are you all right? Yeah I'm all right. Are you sure? Yeah I'm sure. I don't think you're good. Yeah I'm good. Are you sure? Yeah I'm sure. AAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH! He said he was all right now move on and say something else!

    • p NYC #2166797

      Candace should have 2 dead bodies Q AND Warlock NOT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BAD WITCH

    • David Zee Kampala Uganda #2167672

      Yeah I think you r right Belinda - the lengthy uncessary dialogue can get one so f....ing bored, makes it look/feel like they didn't have nothing for the characters to do/say, and all this makes the scenes longer n longer instead of wrapping up something sensibly 'n' moving on to something else. Tyler you r good story writer, teller or what ever its called but u gotta style up a bit for real show watchers to take some stuff of yours seriously. Dave.

    • Runette philadelphia #2167747

      I also agree about the dialogue. It's the same in If Loving You is Wrong. Tyler has some good story ideas (not all of them), but he needs help in writing the dialogue. It annoying.

    This show sucks. It take an entire show to go through one scene? Really? Just like If Loving you was wrong. The character spent the entire time in the hospital. Really? So I guess they will spend their entire time in Jail? We will see the second part on the second season.

      shut up why are you so worried about that he is trying to show us how life is because these things happen all you you care about it stupid things

    Quincy is becoming a trademark, landmark, and a stankmark with all them blood stains in Candace's house and he put the stank in funky. Don' t let him stank up that gorgeous house. Remember when Veronica told Quincy he was stinking up her house. Candace cut Quincy up,cut him up cut him up, cut him up with them Scream and Scary movie I - V butcher knives and cremate him. Please have Candace to hurry up and cut him up, cut him up,slice and dice, julienne, chop, mince, or ground up Quincy. Please get Candace some pistols and shotguns. And don't forget to have her hurry up and find Quincy's phone so she hunt Quita down and beat her up and send Quita jail for child abuse and persuading Quincy to get her mama. And please have Candace beat Veronica brutally but still alive. Have Candace whoop Veronica into a concussion, until she can't walk that they have to put her in a wheelchair and make sure this will be at a c******* party or wedding. Make sure please Candace carry her pistol in case she has to make everybody leave the room at the party. Make Candace do her hair real glamorous with extensions or wear a wig and make sure she put some razors in it. Make sure Candace smile and laugh as she beats Veronica up. Make sure Candace drag Veronica, and have Veronica hanging from a stair balcony. Please let Candace get super bad and extremely ruthless to her enemies( those that are death trap to her) but stay loyal to her family and friends and watch out for those who betray her and if she has to remind them by putting them in their place let her show them. Let her get Superbad and extremely ruthless until the enemies ones who are super threat to her life are out of the picture for good.

    Tyler Perry, it really is a good show so far. But how come you can't have this show on DVD, blu ray or even have the whole series on Netflix or hulu? We all can't afford cable to catch up on marathon because we can't afford cable for real. Please make it happen.

    • Dylan #2166608

      I totally agree im on the second episode of the season but i am slowly catching up it would really help if it was on hulu

    • Reggie Washington, DC #2167273

      I agree... I just started watching it, and I have cable. But the thing is, OWN on demand only starts from season 4! How on earth can I watch season 1. I need to see this from the beginning. Can anyone tell me how to see this show from SE1 E1??? Please? Much, MUCH appreciated.
