Ava DuVernay and the OWN Network have delivered the official trailer for the fifth season of Queen Sugar. In the new season, DuVernay will lock in on the Landry family fights to protect their land from the government.
“In season five, Charley remains thick in the battle with the Landry family as she uses the system of local government to protect the community and the farmers who own land, while coming to terms with her son Micah as he navigates his freshman year at Xavier University, an HBCU,” the OWN Network states, according to Shadow & Act.
“Nova launches her new website to support the community while moving out of the Ninth Ward and settles into her romantic relationship with Calvin. Ralph Angel works to manage fatherhood with son Blue and a healthy path forward with girlfriend Darla despite constant threats to his land and home.”
Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe, Rutina Wesley and Greg Vaughn will return for the show’s fifth season. Omar J. Dorsey and Henry G. Sanders will also appear in the upcoming season. Anthony Sparks will return as the showrunner and Norman Vance will act as the supervising producer.
