The pickup of ‘Queen Sugar’ comes a month before Ava DuVernay’s drama debuts its fifth season on the Discovery-owned cable network.
OWN is doubling up on Queen Sugar in 2021.
The Discovery-owned cable network has renewed Ava DuVernay’s drama for a sixth season, which it plans to air later in the year. The pickup comes about a month before the series’ fifth season premieres on Feb. 16.
The show will also take the mantle of OWN’s longest-running current scripted series later in the year, after the conclusion of Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.
