Event Review: OWN’s Season 2 Premiere Screening of Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots”


OWN’s new hit-show, “The Have and the Have Nots”, is a TV drama from the dynamic writer, director and producer Tyler Perry. The show follows the complicated relationship between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help working in their Savannah, Georgia mansion.

On Monday, OWN held a private screening for the show’s  Season 2 premiere at the Grand Tribeca Hotel in New York City. The drama-filled season premiere, which airs Tuesday at 9 pm EST, is one you don’t want to miss! Between the mild humor and nail-biting suspense, this season guarantees to be nothing less than amazing, definitely topping last season. Tonight’s premiere will leave viewers on the edge of their seats in anticipation of next week’s episode.

Following the screening, the cast did a brief Q&A session with the members of the media in attendance. The entire cast was present with an exception of Tika Sumpter (Candace) and Crystal Fox (Hanna), who both are working on upcoming projects. The Q&A session allowed the actors/actresses to share their personal experiences from working on the set of “The Have and the Have Nots”. Renee Lawless (Katheryn) tried her best  to fight back tears as she reflected on Tyler Perry’s incredible directing skills, to which each member of the cast agreed.

“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 the new season 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 mental 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).
