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 love watching the "Haves and Have Not's". It is one of those shows that keeps you on the edge of your seat and wishing it was on longer. I hope Tyler does a movie based on the past of the characters like he discussed in "The Tyler Perry Show". So glad Benny is still hanging in there! Tyler to me is a rare find in creating shows/movies, he just has a brilliant mind. Keep up the great job! Don't move too far off track from the ways of Jesus though....please!

      Totally agree with the Haves and Have Nots Movie THE BACKSTORY! It sure would be nice if he had actually already completed the project and then on Tuesday night after the season finale...a commercial comes on stating IN THEATERS NEXT WEEK THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS BACKSTORY! ******* I know I am dreaming, but it would sure be nice...

    I have a suggestion (which I know it's probably too late) since the show is going on hiatus after next Tuesday's episode, instead of a hour episode, make it for two hours. OMG, what a treat hat would be for the fans. A girl can dream, right? Peaches....

      That would be nice if he could do something for us...after all we did get surprised with this extra episode that no one was expecting....who is to say we couldnt get surprised with a two hour finale.....FOLLOWED BY THE BACKSTORY MOVIE IN THEATERS DURING THE HIATUS! (.....Dont wake me....i'm dreaming......) I can just see it now...back in the day....Holy Hanna cussing, smoking, drinking, drugging, fornicating, fooling around with married men, multiple baby daddy's, neglecting and abusing Candace (just like she does now....) crime etc..... (awwww hawwww! Now we see why Candace is the way she is!) Veronica...alcholic,drugged out, streetwise, unrefined and cussing and conniving and in rehab having a thousand miscarriages David Harrington....involved in a g** relationship while ronica was in rehab (thus her hatred of homosexuals and Davids acceptance of them) Candace living a life of crime, danger, manipulation, domestic abuse, prostitution, and baby selling....(where the h*** is the d*** baby!?) Quincey and his mess and his crime sprees with Candace assisting, the snitch, the arrest... Finding out Amanda is really Jim and #4's daughter.... Finally getting to see #1,2,3,5,6,7,8 and how all of that came about.... finding out what the heck happened at that Christiah summer camp with Amanda and Wyatt.... and on and on and on and on..... uh, uh, uh.......this movie could be the hot mess of all hot messes and break all records to date!!!!! (...again, dont wake me....i'm dreaming....)

    OMG! OMG? OMG! I really, really, REALLY enjoyed Tuesday night's The Haves And The Have Nots episode. I love THATHN, but I have enjoyed the second season the best. Btw, the viewership for Tuesday night episode was 3.04 million. Hmm, I wonder what Mr. Perry has in store for the fans for the final episode? Please, Mr. Perry, don't keep the fans waiting too long! But, while I'm waiting for the second part of the second season, I'll just watch the reruns of last season and the 10 from second season. This is an awesome show and I hope that it will last for a long, long, LONG time. You are doing an awesome job, Mr. Perry, so please keep up the great work. Peace...

    Is Byron the detective the same one who set up Candace/Benny in season 1? I can't for the life of me remember what that dirty cop from season 1 looks like. S/N I need this show to be ongoing with no off season breaks! I don't even watch soap operas but I am soooooo hooked! Amazing job Tyler Perry!

    TP, I love all of your work. However, The Haves and Have Nots is among your best! I watch it every week in Detroit. But I am visiting family in Jacksonville, FL and I missed Episode 10. How can I watch it online? I am anxious to find out what happened.

      Hi You didn't miss episode 10 yet because it hasn't been shown. Episode 10 is the finale which will be shown next Tuesday night. If by chance you missed episode 9, you can see that one next Tuesday either 7 o'clock or 8 o'clock. Peace...

    TP, as many other commenters have said, I am a huge fan of your work. I am not saying this because I want a thank you from the man himself. I am saying that because you have often stated that you listen to your viewers/followers, etc. I happen to know the gentleman who is the arresting officer in the Tuesday, March 11 episode. I know that he deserves a role with some substance. If not in this show, one of your other shows. He isn't going to tell you himself, but the brother is a talented musician. And most of all, he has a good heart and spiritual upbringing. Would love to see him do more in your productions.

    TP, I'm a huge fan of your craft/work, as is my wife, children and grandchildren. You have placed a young man that I know in your season finale. Allow me to be up front/blunt; like we say (in SC), "he comes from good stock." I'm sure you already know how extremely talented he is. Therefore, I want to see the cop that arrested Wyatt in more shows.
