OWN may be saying goodbye to The Haves and the Have Nots TV series but Queen Sugar isn’t going anywhere. The cable channel has renewed Queen Sugar for a sixth season ahead of the drama’s fifth season premiere next month, on Tuesday, February 16th. It’s likely that season six will launch in 2022.
The upcoming fifth season of Ava DuVernay’s drama will address recent world events as seen through the lens of the Bordelon family and the fictional community of St. Josephine. The series stars Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Nicholas Ashe, Rutina Wesley, Greg Vaughn, Kofi Siriboe, Ethan Hutchison, Bianca Lawson, Tina Lifford, Omar J. Dorsey, and Henry G. Sanders. Timon Kyle Durrett recurs.
Here’s OWN’s press release about the early renewal:
