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).

    OOOOH WHEEEE!!!! I love this show. My husband and I watch it every Tuesday. I hate that next week is the season finale. Please don't leave us hanging too bad. Tie up a few loose ends! LOL! Of course "If Loving You Is Wrong is coming back to help me through the wait> I love both of these shows! Thanks so much..keep up the good work. Many blessings!

    Hello Tyler What a superb show last night. I love the way Hanna took that money, and how Catherine found out that Candice had the 7.4 millions wired to her, this must have been a shocker for Catherine. Wyatt I believe he will overdose, Veronica will have Maggie killed but, Veronica may end up getting hurt in the process. Warlock is going to do something to Benny and maybe the rest of the family. I can't wait until next Tuesday to see the season finale. This show was the best.

    Mr. Tyler Perry, Thank you for making all these good shows I can't wait tell next Tuesday!

    Mr. Tyler, You have me on the edge of my seat at all times. I be angry, crying, laughing. You have me doing it all. Of all the characters on the show, 'Hannah' is my favorite hands down. I like the reset of the characters as too but Hannah is the best. Where do you be finding such good looking men!!!! Even though they have some bad characteristics they still be good eye candy. All these twists and turns that you have going on and everyone interconnected with someone else. All the drama, you are so AWESOME!!!! Sorry to say that I may not get to see the next season. Husband passed away and struggling. Will have to give up some things and one of those things is cable. Don't you worry though. I can always go online to catch the updates when I get to the library. Keep up the good writing, Mr. Tyler and may God continue to bless and keep you.

    When will Veronica get hers, she's evil and always gets away with her mess! I can't stand her!

    Candace is getting worse each week! God!!! I'm so sick of her scheming! And now this other little heifer is getting into the act, too! Benny is going to come out the loser in all this! I'm so glad War showed up and caught her trying to talk to Benny; she's such a two-faced wench, she deserves what's coming her way! Good for Hannah for 'finding' money and taking it! The NERVE of Catherine to try to blackmail her into staying...BUT we all know Hannah will go back. And we know that junkie Wyatt is going to o'd' in his house, and maybe others, too! The Cryers are going to lose BOTH children and it's their own fault; the rich have no morals or boundaries, and think everyone can be 'bought'! I do think Benny has a right to sue, but not with Candace involved; he should know by now that every time she gets involved in something, it turns to crap! *I see the social worker is so scared of Candace that she's turning on Hannah, but Hannah's not going to take this lying down. Next week will be full of confrontations! **Veronica is going to get Maggie killed!

      With Hannah to proclaim being such a Godly woman she's stealing. When you quit your job you can't DEMAND pay then. Even if she did ask her to stay. Rummaging through clothes etc. That was bad on her part. Veronica is heartless.

    Getting so good!!! Veronica needs more than just a couple days n jail!!
