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 am so confused. Is this the end of something so great? I love seening the story line based on the lives of everyday people.Tyler touches the heart of the b***** the gays, the drunks and the whores all in one show. If we had to put Madea to rest that would be fine with me. Tuesday nights I'm pinned to OWN. Thursday night's Scandal. Don't do it! You put some cake on our plates and tell us we can't have it. What is the problem? Tyler, I wish I could speak to you. I think you have lost your ever loving black mind! To make this the Final show simply stupid. Are you hurting and need a friend? You have 3 mill of them. Get to writing or you will be short a few mill. You need some help? I need to see #9 continue her rage. Thanks for reading......

    I haven't watched a soap opera in over 20 yrs. I got tired of the same old stories. This show keeps me wanting more. Even my brother has tuned in. You better recognize, Mr. T. Perry has knocked it out of the ball park. Keep doing what you are doing my brother. I have to watch the re-runs just in case I may have missed something in the previous show. And let the people say, AMEN!!

    THIS SHOW IS THE BEST THING TO HIT TELEVISION IN 30 YEARS!!!!! This so is #TooDarnMuch I am reeling after finally getting to see yesterday's show! What a mess! RONICA is the devil, Maggie is Satans sister, and Kathryn is just going to sit there and go with the flow! I can't even believe that they are scheming to have a vicious and dangerous murderer released so he can kill Candace! (...not even remotely concerned about Candace's demise...as it would also be the demise of the show) Jim and David are pure unadulterated evil!!! Hanna has lost it and is once again screaming, Hollaring, crying, begging, singing, and on the ground on her knees AGAIN...please do us ALL a favor and throw her in the h*** with Benny next week...ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! Jeffrey has punked out, Amanda has cracked up, our precious Candace (bless her little heart #teamcandace) is not safe, folks going to jail who shouldn't be going (Hanna), folks getting out of jail who should be staying in jail (Quincy), and folks who should be in jail are not in jail (Wyatt), folks marching in the streets, babies missing, our blood pressures rising, twitter ablaze, rating soaring fans dying a slow weekly death from sheer anticipation, ONE EPISODE LEFT.......Lord where is the bottom? Who can take this?

      Angel...so your post just happened to be after mine? Smh Jewel of course angels post was dramatic...she's even worse in person.

    • MJ FL #1927890

      Hi Angel, According to Wikipedia, there are two episodes remaining. One episode and then the finality, which airs on the 11th of March. On March 11th, which is the finality and also the tenth episode of the second season. According to JR, there are ten more episodes for the second season. Now when those ten episodes will be shown have yet to be revealed. I just hope they won't keep us waiting toooooo long. Peace....

  • Benny Black In Candice bedroom

    Yesterday's THAHN's was great! To think that I once liked Ms Cryer smh not anymore. Jefferies mother and Ms Cryer and the campaign manager are cold blooded murder's! Pre meditated murder is what I saw yesterday. smh. Candice should be careful, as I think those women are way more evil than her. This house of card's being built by the Cryer's to protect themselves will only come to a crashing end sooner or later. They all need to be in prison. Hanna is going to make the crooked investigator wind up helping her, I know he is on a mission but, Ice can only stay solid for so long next to fire. Hanna again was her own worse enemy, she should have taken the help Ms Cryer offered, she still could have testified at a later time against the Cryer's son, as Mrs Cryer never answered her question. The Judge made his decision because the tax payer's are footing Benny's medical bill, she should have said I have a sponsor who will pay all his medical bill's, smh what a wasted opportunity, but Mrs Cryer had Benny moved before the father could have him removed from life support I think. Babyface lookin ars Jeffery is caught between a rock and a hard place, because he didn't tell his mom to go ahead and do what she gotta, I'll tell them who really did it and that you knew and hid the vehicle. Just some of my thought's on last night. Tonight it's Love thy Neighbor, that show is so funny! We can find out if that no good mother.... took that girl's many or not! lol I can't wait.

  • renee nj

    Yes I totally agree with Lee why why!!! why!!! and why!!

  • Lee

    I have so many questions.....first what is Celine holding over the Cryers...why can't they get rid of her???? How did Tony get custodial rights over Hanna......did they do a DNA test....that did not seem fair to the mom.......and if Hanna loves Benny so much......let the Cryers help....then get them later??????

    • #HavesandHaveNots USA #1927275

      I agree as well. Hanna should want what's best for her son. He needs a permanent doctor.

  • Executive Diva

    I love this show so much. I remind me of the days when Dallas first came on and I just had to be home on Friday nights at 9 p.m. Now I find myself racing to get home on Tuesday nights by 9 p.m. Looking forward to the final episode and the next season.
