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 agree can you please make your shows available other than through the cable network google, hulu, sling or something. I am truly needing to cut the cable strings, they are just to expensive and customer unfriendly The only reason I am holding out is your shows and Opra's network OWN, I need cable for nothing else

    Someone needs to let Benny know what his mother's name is, and what his sister's name is not. Regarding the 9/15/15 episode, Benny was talking to his mom, yet said: "Hanna thought it best you didn't know!" He was referring to Candace thinking that, and he was talking with Hanna when he said it. Tyler, I'm retired and looking for a part-time job--I can definitely proofread, type and compose grammatically correct sentences, letters, scripts. IJS

      To all the kill joys who don't like or care or wish to watch the show. Use your buttons on your remote control that allow you to channel surf and find something that suits your taste & approval! That's why there are so many other shows to select from. not just one channel. Mr. Perry I love all the shows you are doing right now. your SitComs, Love thy neighbor, & for better or worse. and your soap, If lovin' you is wrong, The haves and have not. As I said it before, keep up the good work!

    This show is so good. I think you have to understand the way Tyler Perry thinks to actually understand where he is coming from when writing this show. He truly shows both sides of the tracks. If you know anything about Tyler Perry, he has seen both sides, all to well. I live for Tuesday nights. This is one of the BEST shows written in a long long time.

    the acting almost had me not watch the show....but the story was good. Please Tyler go a bit faster. They act like its a broadway play and they are waiting for the audiences reaction after every line.I like the show very much.

    Where do I watch the beginning episodes of season 4? The earliest showing on demand through Comcast was episode 6, and I can't find any place to find the earlier shows online or elsewhere. Thanks in advance for your your assistance.

    I think this show has the "best worst acting". Good plots, acting a bit theatrical, but I would like to see a cliffhanger with a bit more "WTF" and will leave you really hanging onto your seat. Also, please let somebody check Veronica. Hell, even JR Ewing, Alexis Carrington, got checked, not that it stopped them from being villianeous, but really. I'm still a fan and would love to sit in on a script writing, I have some ideas for you.

    I think they all should take an acting course especial Benny, the acting is horrible. Although some have had previous acting role they all are horrible actors.
