Looking for a new primetime soap? A Tyler Perry Fan? OWN has the perfect combination of the two in The Haves and the Have Nots.
The Haves and the Have Nots follows Savannah's wealthy Cryer family, headed by judge Jim Cryer (John Schneider) and his scorned wife Katheryn (Renee Lawless), whose lives have become intimately and inextricably linked with the families of their hired help.
As Season 2 unfolds, Jim Cryer mounts a campaign for governor despite escalating family problems and the vengeful actions of his former mistress Candace Young (Tika Sumpter). Jim's wife despises him; his son Wyatt's (Aaron O'Connell) heroin addiction leads to a terrible crime; and his daughter Amanda (Jaclyn Betham) sinks into a world of delusion.
Meanwhile, Cryer housekeeper Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) searches for justice regarding a terrible accident involving her son Benny (Tyler Lepley); and rehab counselor Jeffrey Harrington (Gavin Houston) stands up for himself after coming out as gay to his parents David (Peter Parros) and Veronica Harrington (Angela Robinson).
On Tuesday, January 28, OWN will air two repeat episodes of the season to help viewers catch up, then at 9 p.m., it will air the new Unanswered Calls episode in which Jeffery (Gavin Houston) begins to realize that Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell) may be the hit-and-run driver, who killed a young girl and critically injured Benny (Tyler Lepley).
