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).

    Thanks Tyler waaoh i don't want to focus on other people's opinion but when some body says this was a slag i take offense. well this is one of the most intriguing shows you have put up, its brilliant, it speaks to the mind, builds courage, checks character, think about Hana, she does not have all that money but she has a SPIRIT. its one way to do self check in character, faith, goals, and so much more. thank you Tyler together with your team . you are appreciated.

    Greetings, Let me try this again. I can't begin to express how elated I am that my beloved show is back! My life just wasn't the same without The Haves And The Have Nots. Now that it is back, all is right within my world. I'm now wondering how long will the show be on before it goes on hiatus again? At any rate, I hope the show will entertain us through the summer. I read that the viewership for Tuesday's episode was 3.11 million. I hope that Benny will survive his injuries. There is trouble brewing in the Harrington's household. I am glad to see Mr. Harrington stand up to his wife Veronica. I'm sad that Kathryn's and Hanna's friendship is over. Why wasn't Amanda and the professor not shown? I am wondering if, she injured him, or did she killed him? I don 't know how true this is, but I heard that Candace is not pregnant. What are David's and Jim's plans for getting Wyatt out of jail? I bet it is something illegal. Peace...MJ

      Well....enjoy the elation for the next 10 minutes!!!!! The show is back off the air for another stupid and un-necessary hiatus on July 29th! at this point I am growing increasingly annoyed with the whole operation at OWN!!!!! I don't even get excited about these shows anymore....I forgot it was even TUESDAY this week.......absence can do two things Tyler and Oprah...#1 It can make the heart grow fonder.....#2 it can make the heart loose interest!!!!

    Tyler, I would love to watch this season, as I watched faithfully last season, but my family and I have fallen on some hard times; however, I pray that you continue with a new season after this one so that we can catch up. We are working on our finances so we can get our cable back. I know it is just as good as last season. Thank God for libraries, so I can read the comments from this season and see the previews.
