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 was crushed when my lover of three years left to be with another woman. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I reached out to the Internet for help. I wasted so much time and effort trying to get it back until I hit on the real thing. And it is her final magic. You were different from the rest - you are the diamond in the rough. Thank you from the bottom of my soul! I am extremely happy. I hope God blesses you, as you have to help me get my love back, to visit him in () can be of great help to all of you.

    I like series, some thing just are not realistic though. I think while Hannah should be upset with Candace, I think she should see the new house and the garage given to Benny as God taking something bad and turning it into something good ;as long as hard work and honesty is only utilized going forward, take it as a Godsend. Especially since she has lost everything in the fire.

    • Gwen Apex,N.C. #2164035

      I agree with you on this. I think that if Hannah believe and trust that Benny will do right, God will bless them even more. I also think that the Lord will touch Candice in some ways too. She will still do her,but make some changes in her life.

    • Cheryl Bronx, NY #2164907

      Don't watch the show. With all the corny shows on TV today. It's a pleasure to have a show on like The Haves and The Have Nots. Tyler won't lose anything if you stop watching. The same goes for anyone else who doesn't like the show. Watch something else.

    Come on Candace, Girl Run and Go Get some plastic gloves and one of your Scream I-V and Scary movie butcher knives and Cut Quincy up. Candace, Hurry up and Cut him up and Cremate him. Do it before he tries to harm you again and he was about to grab your ankle. Please hurry up and find the phone under that couch so you can find Quincy's sister, Quita and make sure nobody's around so you can go get her and beat her. And if Quita holding back information from you use a broken bottle, hot oil, hot wax, hot burning straightening comb, curling and flat irons, clothing iron, burning relaxer to make her give all the information you need and send Quita to prison. I don't care if you have to throw hot grits on her and beat her down with a skillet and don't forget to send Quita to prison please please do. Candace, you need to get Veronica, give her the ultimate beat down, beat her up until she can't walk or until doctors or surgeons have to wrap her up like a mummy but make sure she's still alive. Tyler Perry before anyone lays a hand on Veronica, Candace need to give Veronica the ultimate beat down remember the way Lisa Ray McCoy's character Diamond beat up that girl on the Player's Club and as a matter make sure Candace beat Veronica to the point she is hangin off the balcony and Candace is laughing at her. The best time for Candace to beat Veronica down is at a C******* party or a wedding.

    Hello Tyler I enjoyed the season premiere last Tuesday and this Tuesday episodes. I really hope that Hanna come s and live with Benny. Know it looks like from the preview the grandson is sick. I hope Jeffrey tells the police, because it was self defense. Really shocked about the DA Jennifer didn't know she felt that way about David. Veronica is in for a surprise can,t wait until next Tuesday. Excellent work superb.

  • David

    Hello Mr. Perry... I think the characters are great; however, can Jeffrey man up and not seem so spineless. Please keep up the good work as I thank you for having the courage to showcase black actors and actresses in your movies.

    • lorraine #2163924

      Hey, Jeffrey's getting on my nerves being such a chicken! *Did I see in the previews that War is gonna shove Candy Cane against the wall and accuse her of playing him??? I'm shocked! He digs Candace and I was hoping she'd call him to come help her, since Jeffrey is useless!** Maybe little Q being sick will bring Candace and Hannah together, finally. ***Sooner or later Hannah is gonna have to go live w/Benny, or little Q will be taken from her and put in foster care; she's so stubborn, she's making me mad! A house is a house...and it's already paid for!!! Hannah's pride will be her downfall.

    • Gwen Apex,N.C. #2164037

      I don't think that it's pride,she just wants to do the right things so that she can live in peace. Candace has lied to so much in the past that she wants things to be good. I'm hoping that the two of them will be able to have a civil relationship for little Q if nothing else.
