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 love the Haves and the Have Nots ! I just wish I could watch it more than just on Tuesday! I wouldnt mind watching through out the week, I still laugh and get mad at the same parts every time I watch! I hate that tonight is the last episode, but very excited! I want to know tho, why did Tyler Perry use either a dummy, or someone who can sit in the sameway without moving? In the episode when Mrs. Cryer came to see Hannah in the hospital . The person didn't move when Mrs. Cryer came through the door and was in the same position when she left! I know there had to been someone who could have played that part! Just saying, Im sure anyonewould have liked to play a part for Tyler Perry! Ready for the season finale!

    the actress that plays Hannah deserves an Oscar. I missed last weeks & am watching it now. I keep crying right along with her, she is so realistic. I love this show!!!!. I can`t believe the season finale is here already.

      can you tell me where you watch previous episodes of Season 3. I missed the finale and would love to be able to see on another site. Thank you

    HIP-HIP-HURRAY, Tuesday is FINALLY HERE!!! Of course I have mixed emotions. On the one hand I'm elated cuz THATHN is coming on tonight, but on the other hand, I'm deeply saddened cuz it's the last show of the season. Geez, why tease us with 10 episodes, then BOOM no more episodes until god-only-knows how long we will have to wait for the new episodes. Like I stated in a previous post, I hope that Mr. Perry will be so kind as to inform the fans when the show will resume. In my opinion, he owes us that much. Peace....

    This is the best show on TV since "Dallas" and "Knots Landing" back in the day. I love this show. I rush home on Tuesday evenings to watch Candace. OMG she is so BOLD! I have loved Crystal Fox since she was on "In the Heat of the Night". Tyler Perry keep doing your thing; you are the BOMB.com.

    Tonight is the end of the season and I'm so sad. I look forward to this show. All the actors are great. I started watching for Tika saw her on One life to live, she is really good, and Hannah is to wonderful for words. My only complaint is it's over for now and I have to wait. I could watch again on demand but that has really old last season episodes. So Mr. Perry when will this be back? Since it's going well can't you up the budget and show more shows? Either way I'll be watching.
