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).

    This show is bursting through the seams with talent. I grew up looking at general hospital with my mom until I looked at have an have-nots I had no idea of what soap opera should look like. Every Time I watch General Hospital,even to this day ,I would think of how unrealistic it is and how I would've done it differently. Haven't have-nots came along and exceeded my imagination. I'm not a empire fan at all but I love me some have an have-nots. Tika the soaps should have kept you. My only thoughts are that is not getting enough promotion you barely know when is going to come on it is as bipolar is my ex-boyfriend. Or maybe is more of the network that is on I mean ABC is always going to get ratings because that's one of the most watch networks even if you don't have cable. I really hope that One can embrace this more this is a work of art it is intelligent in itself and I would love to see more. Last thing I like it just the way it is please don't go overboard and please don't pool back it is great just the way it is is like me thinking out loud. My mom said she didn't like and would never watch a Tyler Perry show. So I persuaded her to watch the have an have-nots with me without telling her who was behind the show. Let's just say Tyler Perry's biggest critic loves the Have sand Have Nots now. She smiled and said I really like this it's better than Empire. Then I told her it's a Tyler Perry Production. Needless to say that she is a fan, which is funny in itself. Great job to all behind this show

    I have watched every episode from the first till the last! I was very disappointed that Benny was caught up in Candace's trouble (murder cover up) I do hope this is NEVER discovered, so hate to see anything happen to him, don't believe he should have had anything to do with it!

      do you think benny is happy that quincy is dead?

    • Dominique Lashay Yancey 2700 felicity drive cincinnati,ohio #2184142

      i don't think quincy shouldn't have died

    • Tracy Roanoke TX #2188620

      I think Quincy's death plays a very interesting rile in negotiation power with Veronica considering she is why he was out and about in the first play. . .I can't wait to see how it unfolds

    My people i bring to you good news, and this is my joy and happiness. people say To become a member of the illuminati is a very difficult task. but i bring to your notice that to become a bonafide member of the brotherhood have been made very easy. sometime ago i was just eager to become a member, and i meant so many persons who never showed me the right way. few months ago i saw so many people testifying of how agent Thompson linked them up, and they become a complete member of the brotherhood. so i decided to contact Mr Thompson who gave me the right link to become a member. i followed all the steps, and today i am a proud member of the brotherhood of Illuminati. so i want you all to help me say a big thanks to agent Thompson. In case you have been aspiring to become a member of the brotherhood, and you have not meet the right person before now, i want to tell you to quickly contact the right Illuminati agent now. he is no other person than Mr Thompson. the mission of the brotherhood now is to w*** away suffering and hardship away from the life of all. so if you are a business man/woman, an artist, a pastor, a working class, and do you want wealth,fame,protection,long life, prosperity just name it just as i have now, the illuminati is ready to help you achieve your dreams.contact agent Thompson on the illuminati email: his phone number +545 and become a legitimate member, join us today and become rich, powerful, famous all your life.

    Hi, I just started watching this show because I wanted to watch it from the beginning of the first season. Where can I watch it? I have xfinity and began watching it on demand but it was taken away. Help! I love this show!

    • HappyToHelp MD #2183373

      you can watch this and many other shows at projectfreetv.im Be careful of the bugs and pop ups though. I suggest good anti-virus software. I watch there for free whenever I miss an episode on TV or after the semester is over! happy watching!

    I have missed the first and second season of the haves and have nots and if loving you is wrong is there a way I can purchase the seasons I missed

    • Mayra Sacramento, CA #2182765

      Just wondering if Mr. Perry responds to all the inquires regarding whether or not viewers can get past shows on DVD or any other way. Seems kind of rude not to know if it is possible considering that so many people do ask. I have never seen an answer or response from him online or anywhere else. With all of the repeated commercials that are run on OWN you would think that it would be mentioned.
