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).

    Tuesday night favorite, I like it all, Q needs to go back to jail. Regardless how Can got the cash, she has it, people in the real world are gay, just because some one writes about them

    Hello Tyler I loved last week episode and the season finale. Veronica (Angela Robinson) thumbs up for her she was superb in all the performances. They all were sensational. Benny (Tyler Lepley) will really have a fit when he finds out what Veronica did to get Quincy out. I hope nothing happens to David (Peter Parros). I can't wait to season 3. Just get some rest Tyler. You've done an excellent job with this show as always.

      I love this show. All the cast is fantastic. Hannah plays her part well. It takes a good actress to come off to let people really dislike her. She is a piece of work. N*** in air and all. Kathryne. Jim, selene, wyatt, jeffery, david, benny, candace.wonderful cast. Excellent job Tyler as usual.

    Mr. Tyler, What a great series -Your mind is so complicated with great and mind-blowing situations. I hope you continue back in the Fall because it was difficult waiting so long last time. This is one of best shows on television. Keep on keeping on!

    If you kill off Peter Parros, I along with a whole slew of people will stop watching. He is not only gorgeous, his character, though not perfect, is a highly intelligent, well-grounded African-American man, of which we need more. Hats off to Angela Robinson, Crystal Fox, Tika Sumpter, Gavin Houston, and Tyler Lepley-these actors are doing their thing!!

      Agree-We know he won't get killed off -he is our grounding savior with morals of a saint. So handsome and makes us feel good. He is your son, your brother , your father your lover. Leave him with his great qualities. Who is there like that in world anymore?

    The season finale got me glued to the TV!!! I love that Jeffery & David are finally standing up to Veronica. The cast is great! Please please don't take forever to come back to next season. You almost lost me as a fan of this show because the time between seasons are just too long! Thank you!

  • Penny tennessee

    When is the have and have nots coming out on dvd? I would love to own the series. Its a great show:)

  • Ginny Denson Huntsville

    Mr. Perry the HAHN is a great show. Please don't ruin Veronica's character. She is the best actress on the show. Please keep her and David together, as well as Katheryn and Jim. Cancan e came into money the wrong way. She need to lose it all and earn it the right way by working hard to accomplish the things she want in life. Her way is not sending a positive message to women. Please, please, please bring back the Veronica so. Any of us love.
