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 can't seem to find anything that says "If Loving You Is Wrong" is coming back! What a shame, b/c I was just starting to like that as well; I especially want to know if Pete lives after being ambushed by that gang; and I'd love to see what happens w/Alex and her r***** parents and that baby! There are a lot of loose ends to be tied up, so I hope we get some closure and not just left hanging!

    Not only is Candace in too deep, she's now dragged everyone else into her MUD!!! I hope they all abandon her and let her sorry @ss drown! I've begun to really dislike her scheming butt! *I hope that social worker was lying about Oscar paying her, b/c I want her to have Candace and that other heifer arrested and charged w/assault! **Finally, Hannah has had her fill of the Cryers and Harringtons and all their b.s.! She and Catherine are DONE, and Hannah might even sue them herself (but I doubt it, since she's so holy)! ***I'm so glad Benny stood up to David; why is David so concerned over that demon wife of his, after all she's done to him and Jeffrey! I hope he's too late to save her and she gets shot! ****It looks like Jeffrey's going to get 'assaulted' by that cop; he tried it before, but didn't get a chance to follow through...looks like Jeffrey will be a victim again! He needs to take some self-defense classes!

    I never watch tv but two shows captured much undivided attention. One was The Have and Have Nots. I am getting very disappointed lately with all the bad stuff uncontrolled and somewhat unrealistic. The lady DA is too mean to be interesting and these events are getting very irritating. Wyatt is a stupid brat and keeps me from sleeping so, at last, I have decided to wait until a new season, if there is one, and maybe it will get better.

    Is there any way for those of us who have "cut the cord" to watch full episodes? I would love a app to subscribe to like hbo etc does now. OWN network could have it's own app that we could pay to subscribe to like netflix. If there already is a way, someone please advise me. Respectfully, Deborah

      I love "Love thy neighbor" but all the silliness is awful. Nobody laughs at everything and I only watches it because of Hattie because the rest of the cast is kinda stupid. Floyd was never that silly and the two men(boys) need to grow up.

    That scene with Candice and her friend beating the social worker was so hard to watch. Was it really necessary to have Candice display such brutal and cruel behavior? Even if the social worker had been involved (please don't go there) there was no reason for such brutality.
