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 love the show but the February 10th episode was a rad irritating because the bus stop where Jim Cryer was standing showed the neighborhood with its residents looking as if they were zombies. the residents were walking around looking like they were drunk or on drugs. Women got off the bus with no handbags and or pocket books. They were depicted like escapees from an asylum. They were not walking like normal people in a community but bent over walking as they just got high from some drug den. Because it's a ghetto do to speak, people living in one does not mean people are degenerates. Then there's the guy staring at Jim Cryer as if he never saw a black man. The particular scene was not an accurate depiction of people living in a depressed area or a ghetto area. It didn't look ghetto but it showed African American people looking and acting like zombies and I truly resented the way it was written. Another thing I hate is one scene plays out far too long talking about a subject that is dragged out when it could be dealt with sooner. Sitting there watching and me and my husband say ok, alright already, go to the next scene. Also my husband says what happened to Candance 's boyfriend that Veronica called? Seems the writer forgot about it because he should have been there to get Candance.

    Hi ! I am clearly a BIG fan of this show, The Haves and The Have Nots! Every episode knocks my whole family off of their seats. I can finally say this season as well as the last season has everyone hooked! This is actually in fact the most perfect drama series I have lived to see. With the outstanding twists, boomerang words that comes back and bite, it makes me re-think my expectations on what I thought to believe of what exactly will happen next. I love Candice! She is my favorite character, and I also love the LGBT drama. Equality is obviously a big issue in the world we live in, and by having relatable individuals throughout the shows where each family member, friends, and fans can all learn something new, this gives viewers an open, and flexible mindset on human nature. I can't wait to see more because love is love and nothing is wrong with that! Everyone acting skills are on point for this series; everyone grows stronger with how they handle situations. If I ever had a chance to act and to be apart of the family in this miraculous show, I would definitely take the blessing! I have the looks, the brain, ect.. but this isn't about me. Its about congratulating you on this eye opening series that everyone and their neighbors talks about. Congratulations!

    I feel the show is not as good as it was in the beginning- the show is dealing with many issues of the modern world- i.e. g** right, inter racial relationships interracial ,women's rights=I am disappointed in the direction the show is heading and will not continue watching it.- I personally will not watch it any longer- I preferred the show in the beginning when it dealt with the issues of the main characters- I feel there are too many issues being dealt with n0w= A EX FAN

    I love the show despite the long drawn out drama, over or under reacting. Tyler Perry is amazing at what he does, I've learned to look pass the drama and listen to the message as the story unfolds.

      Veronica's an insufferable b-tch that should end up ALONE! David can do better, and Jeffrey needs to grow a pair and tell her to b*** out of his life and let him live it the way he chooses!
