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).

    First of all let me tell you that I love the show. I was just a little dissapointed in last night finale. I wanted more!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so looking forward to the last show of the season and I just do not feel that there was enough. You definatley got me thinking and I will look forward to the season in May...sad face... GREAT SHOW! GREAT CAST! Also, I know some people that do not have the OWN channel and would love to watch the show, is there any place in charlotte, nc that sells the season dvd/blue ray?

    • Michelle Connecticut #1932723

      I agree with you. Iwas a little disappointed with the finale. I wanted more. There is so many story angle that was not touch upon like, why there was no mention of the fact that Candace fake pregnancy is based on a home pregnancy test that Amanda had taken right after she was raped by her professor. It had positive result which means it could not be the professor's baby. What happend to the baby? Is she still pregnant?...and if so, who is/would have been the father? Also, what does Celine have over Jim to be able to blackmail him. Catherine knows about the affair. If anything, they should be able to blackmail her...isn't she married.

      I agree with you it was a little disappointing with so many storylines not touched. Too many things going on. What about the young man in prison that Veronica went to see? Amanda stabbing the professor and he just running off--Really????? Just a wild hunch but I think the young man that rented the campaign office is Celines son. This is why they are paying her. It is a great show but too much happening for nothing to happen.

    All I want to know is whee did Crystal Fox get that baaaad dress she wore on the Tyler Perry Show, following the finale? Who was she wearing?????????/

    Benny has got to have it out with his sorry Sperm Donor, that never did anything for him. Yet, he was willing to kill him for selfish gain.

    When does season 3 start!? I am so excited. Tyler Perry you are truly amazing. I want to also take the time to tell you that please do not take into account all the spiteful and negative comments that have been left below. I am all for constructive criticism but some of these people clearly have just set out to annoy you and be very wicked. The ratings speak for themselves sir and you know the devil will use as many people as he can to try and bring you down but may God continue to clothe you with righteousness,patience,protection and perseverance in Jesus name! (Amen) You are doing an AMAZING JOB. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH. I love Hannah's character and I'm so glad that handsome Benny didn't die too! *fans self* LOL. Much love and God bless x** Oh yeah and P.S: TO ALL YOU NEGATIVE SELF-HATING PEOPLE, THIS SHOW IS FICTION....YOU KNOW... AS IN...ITS NOT ACTUALLY REAL! WE DON'T WANT A HISTORY OR POLITICS LECTURE ABOUT THE SHOW NOT BEING AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF WHAT HAPPENS IN THE 'REAL WORLD' OR THE LEGAL WORLD .....WE WOULD WATCH A DOCUMENTARY IF WE GAVE A DAMN. I REPEAT, IT IS FICTION SO CALM DOWN. GET SOME THERAPY OR BETTER YET....A BIBLE YA'LL. FOR REAL...ITS OBVIOUS SOME OF YA'LL REALLY HATE YOURSELVES. CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS ONE THING BUT JUST BEING PLAIN EVIL IS ANOTHER THING ENTIRELY. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS MAN HAS WORKED? SERIOUSLY,WICKEDNESS PROFITS YOU NOTHING. Love you Tyler x

    I love the show even have my husband watching it. Am just wondering if we can get it or will it be able to get the series on DVD and when. I have been keeping my eye out for it but all I find is the comedy one. sure would like an answer Thank You!

  • lorraine CA

    Great show tonight! Kudos to those who knew that Det. Byron was working for Jim...I never suspected that; and that Katheryn was the one who had Benny moved; I did know that Jim was going to set Candace up...I thought she would figure it out and not go! I wonder if Katheryn had known beforehand that Hannah was responsible for Wyatt being arrested, if she would have still had Benny moved. LOVED the scene with all of them in Jim's office! That campaign manager is a real piece of dirty work! She clearly has no use for David or Veronica, doesn't like them, and wishes they weren't part of the campaign at all! She better watch out! Will Candace's babydaddy come to her rescue?? Next week should be a real doozy! I'm LOVIN' IT!!!

    I absolutely love The Haves and Have Nots. This is by far among your finest works. I want to say that Crystal Fox (Hanna) should be nominated for and win an Emmy for her performance. She plays that role so well and she is so believable. I love her!!!
