OWN’s popular television drama, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” from Tyler Perry, returns Tuesday, January 6 at 9 p.m. EST.

In the new season, the devastating consequences of deception and reckless behavior come to fruition, as both the Cryer and Harrington families face personal tragedies that threaten their privileged status.

Viewers last saw judge Jim Cryer (John Schneider) as he was carried away from his mansion in a kidnapping perpetrated by his former mistress (and former captive) Candace Young (Tika Sumpter). Candace wants revenge and money and will stop at nothing to get it. As the season progresses, Veronica Harrington (Angela Robinson) grows increasingly suspicious that her husband David (Peter Parros) may be unfaithful and continues to reject her gay son Jeffrey (Gavin Houston), stopping at nothing to turn him straight. In addition, Wyatt Cryer’s (Aaron O’Connell) demons resurface and Amanda Cryer’s (Jaclyn Betham) personal crisis comes to a shocking conclusion. The series also stars Renee Lawless, Tyler Lepley, Crystal Fox and Eva Tamargo.
