OWN Renews ‘Queen Sugar’ For Season Six

Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has ordered a sixth season of drama “Queen Sugar” one month prior to its fifth season premiere. Set in rural Louisiana and the fictional community of St. Josephine, the Anthony Sparks-showrun “Queen Sugar” focuses on the trio of Bordelon siblings, played by Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Rutina Wesley and Kofi Siriboe, and their extended family.

“What a joy and an honor to continue the stories of Queen Sugar with our partners at OWN and Warner Bros.,” said EP DuVernay today of the early renewal. “On behalf of every producer, editor, costumer, grip, writer, cast member and all departments involved in making this series, we’re delighted to delve into a sixth season and to bring our beautiful audience more of the Bordelon family.”

The number of new episodes for “Queen Sugar” has not been confirmed. Through season four, 55 episodes have been produced.
