Show Summary

The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama from the prolific writer, director and producer Tyler Perry. The series follows the complicated dynamic and contrasting lifestyles between three families: the rich and powerful Cryer and Harrington families and the impoverished Young family, as their lives intersect in Savannah, Georgia.

On the surface, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth but the family's dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch, Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose penchant for high-priced escorts puts his family and political ambitions at risk. Wife and matriarch Katheryn Cryer (Renee Lawless) portrays the loving and dutiful wife whose willing to do anything to protect her family's status. Their son, Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell) is a troubled, angry jock in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jaclyn Betham) is a struggling law student who tries to live up to her parents' expectations but unwittingly befriends a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryers' maid and matriarch of her family. She prides herself on her dutiful son, Benny (Tyler Lepley) and is anchored by her religious faith. Her one dark secret is her estranged daughter Candace, (Tika Sumpter) a manipulative opportunist who will do anything to get what she wants. In a bizarre twist of fate, Candace is shocked to learn that her new-found friend Amanda's father, is Jim Cryer who has been paying her for sex and who also employs her mother as his family's maid. Armed with this ammunition, the stage is set for what Candace believes is the opportunity of a lifetime.

Other characters include: the Cryers' chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and Wyatt Cryer's rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

  • Worst Show EVER

    It's so bad it is like watching a bothced face lift happen. but I LOVE it for it's badness .;-)


    That Gay Son should punch that Bitch Mom TIME > And if here husband doesn't leave her penniless he needs to get his head examined ?

    And they all need an enema for being so emotionally constipated. Who writes crap like this, other than Tyler Perry ?????

    He needs to go BACK to Writting !!!!moreless
  • Simply Riveting

    I just love the cast members. Keep up the good work Tyler Perry!
  • the finale?

    The finale sucked. I overlooked the flaws of this show and somewhat got into the predictable storyline. After the finale, I don't know if I can watch another season.
  • Great Shows

    I love the episodes---- the best drama since All My Children. I feel that Benny and Hannah has a strange mother / son relationship. He acts more like a husband than a son;Hannah should put him in his place for good. Also, when will everyone find out that Kat had cancer and Hanna stayed by her side? keep up the drama!!!!

    This is the best entertainment I have come across yet. This show keeps my interest from beginning to end. Where did you get that Candace from, as a matter of fact you just choose all award winning characaters for this show!!!! That Jeffrey is to fine to play gay, but he is great at what he is doing, Veronica, I hate you but love to watch your acting, you go girl. Hanna, I love to see you cry and pray, cry and pray, you are so good at it, everyone is just AWESOME. Whoever have a problem with this show, is probably not happy with anything in their life. Tyler Perry keep the episodes coming, maybe you can include my dramatic daughter....moreless
