“Queen Sugar” has been renewed for a seventh season on OWN, which will be the show’s final season. The new season’s writing has begun, and production will begin in early 2022.
“Everything has a season,” Ava DuVernay, the show’s creator, stated. “And, with our colleagues at OWN and Warner Bros. Television, my producing partner Paul Garnes and I have had seven wonderful seasons making ‘Queen Sugar’ with a fantastic cast and crew.” Writing and producing seven seasons of a modern drama about a Black family is a bold move in our profession and an achievement that well exceeds my wildest expectations.
Now I’m convinced that the story, which began with Oprah’s idea of the dawn, is ready for its sunset as a completely realized dream. “One of the genuine delights of my work has been ‘Queen Sugar,’ and my appreciation is immeasurable.”
The Season 7 Release Date Is in 2022
Queen Sugar will make a comeback in 2022, but the exact date has yet to be determined. Queen Sugar’s writing room has made progress on the scripts, according to OWN, and production will begin in 2022.
The Entire Cast Is Anticipated to Reprise Their Roles
The entire ensemble cast of the show is expected to reunite once more. Rutina Wesley (Nova Bordelon), Dawn-Lyen Gardner (Charlotte “Charley” Bordelon West), Nicholas L. Ashe (Micah West), Bianca Lawson (Darla Sutton), Tina Lifford (Violet Bordelon), Omar J. Dorsey (Hollywood Desonier), Henry G. Sanders (Prosper Denton), and Timon Kyle Durrett are among the cast members (Davis West).

Following his character’s sojourn in Washington, D.C., Ethan Hutchinson, who plays Ralph Angel and Darla’s kid, Blue, will return in Season 7. And, as a result of Ralph Angel and Darla having a daughter in the finale, his life is changing once more.
Ava Du Vernay Already Knows How It’s Going to End
The final scene of Queen Sugar is still fresh in Ava DuVernay’s thoughts. “I didn’t consider how to get to the end; I simply know what it will be.” “I’m enthused about where it’s all headed, so the adventure will be taking steps to get to the conclusion of the voyage as we start writing more,” DuVernay told Deadline.
Hopefully, the story will end on a happy note. “Black joy looks beautiful on this family,” Lifford said of the joyous season six conclusion and what it means for season seven. The Bordelon siblings grew their families in the finale, with Ralph Angel and Darla welcoming a kid, Davis and Charley agreeing to remarry and go to Los Angeles, and Nova and Dominic tying the knot. “This can’t and won’t be perfect all of the time, but it’s a start.”
