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).

    I have to agree with RLY!! I think Candace should get her money back and get the folder out of Jim's office, go after Mr. Oscar and pass the bar to handle them all. She needs her kid and needs to revenge on all evil that has try to stopped her. Candace and Hannah need to come together. Veronica keeps me in suspense all the time with her outrageous evilness. But it keeps me coming back.. I love this show every Tuesday night. Mr. Perry keep up the good work!!

      I agree... Want Candace to become a lawyer too. Get everybody in "check". I'd also like to see Jeffrey do some martial arts. I'd like to see him become the Wesley snipes of this show and if he ever shows any interest in females on this show I'd like for it to be Candace. I love their chemistry together. I think child care services should have realized that Candace's whole demeanor changed to fearful when she was told that Quincy was in the Hospital. Hanna is over the top and needs to be taking down a notch when it comes to Candace. Ultimately...I hope Candace has her day in court. Candace Young Esq.! I love the sound of that.

    All I can say is Tyler you are gifted and talented. I have enjoyed everything you have put your heart and soul in....in watching the #HAHN I have been totally captivated by all of the twists and turns....but I have to tell you that Oscar played Candace like a violin. I was in shock it seemed as if him and Candace was going to be the "hottest" couple on this show.....She will never forgive him...But knowing you, you will find a way to make that happen...Keep up this amazing and unforgettable television experience. And one more thing, Veronica is either bipolar, has a dual personality or straight up nutty...all of the actors play an intricate part and they all feed off each other....keep us in suspense!!!!

    Watching this show I have said over and over, the HAHN writers have to be some of THE MOST creative, intellectual and "twisted" (in a good way) minds ever!!! What brainpower! Simply said ...Tyler you certainly have "THE best team" on the planet!!!

    I hope Tyler Perry don't start writing stupid scenes like Candace is d*** that she don't know how to go to the bank and tell them that her money has been hacked, and get her money back. Because in "The Real World" the bank deals with dispution of how the money was taken. Also I hope he don't go like these soap and start hiding bodies. First of all she did not have one bruise on her, so that is a no no, Q beat her so she should have an black Eye, swallow face, to prove it was self defense. So I hope in the next season they don't go Hiding bodies. that is d*** writing. Candace is smart, I think she should go to Jim office while he is locked up get her file back since he put it on the shelf and get her money back and then file charges against Brandon (AKA) Oscar. Two wrongs don't make a right, Jim is getting away with too much and she should get her money back. Let Candace be the Young Veronica Aka Young Victor Newman who knows how the game is played.

      Candace would have no way of knowing her file is in Jim's office or anyone's for that matter! All she knows is the money's gone and Oscar did it! She has NO idea it was DAVID behind this whole thing; I do want her to get her $$ back, I think she deserves it after the c*** Jim put her through w/the kidnapping, etc.; bottom line, Hannah will have to stay w/Benny or take Katheryn up on her offer to stay @their house; either that, or be in the street! Candace disappointed me the way she ran out on little Q just because she found out Q was there; however, the way things turned out, I'm glad little Q didn't have to see his mother being beat down! That poor child has already been through too much!

    I hate Hannah's character at times. She is cruel and judgemental towards Candice. Some christian she is, with her pious self. Saw Oscar coming a mile away, David did warn Candice she wouldn't see it coming.

    Do you think we could please petition, plead, ask, encourage, persuade, sway, convince, cajole, or even .... beg ( "ain't too proud" ), Mr. Perry, to please bring HAHN back before Jan. 2016???? I'm in.
