Deadline shared the details of the plot of the series back in May:
“Queen Of The South tells the story of Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga). When her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico, Teresa is forced to go on the run and seek refuge in America, where she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run. In the process, she learns the tools of the trade and strategically positions herself to become the leader of the Cartel.”
Braga spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the new series, and she said the following about her character.
“She’s smart. It’s beautiful to see the way she deals with her challenges.”
