The Queen of the South TV show has been a top-three Nielsen ratings performer for USA Network, and last year, its drop-off was negligible. TV series tend to shed viewers with age, though. Will that decline begin in the fourth season? How long will this program reign? Will Queen of the South be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
USA Network drama, based on the Spanish-language telenovela and novel La Reina Del Sur, by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Queen of the South stars Alice Braga as Teresa Mendoza, a woman on the run from a powerful drug cartel, who seeks refuge in the U.S. The cast also includes Veronica Falcón, Hemky Madera, Peter Gadiot, Jon-Michael Ecker, Idalia Valles, and Nick Sagar. Chris Greene and Sofia Lama recur in season four, when Teresa expands to New Orleans.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
