The seventh and final season of Queen Sugar is now airing Tuesdays 8/7 central on OWN.
Meshell Ndegeocello scores and Aamina Gant music supervises Ava Duvernay’s two-time NAACP Image Award winning family drama, which follows the life of three siblings, one of whom moves from Los Angeles to Louisiana, to claim a shared inheritance from their recently departed father – an 800-acre sugarcane farm.
Ava DuVernay reflected on the series’ ending in an official statement. “To everything, there is a season. And my producing partner Paul Garnes and I have had seven gorgeous seasons making Queen Sugarwith a remarkable cast and crew, alongside our partners at OWN and Warner Bros. Television,” shared DuVernay. “To write and produce seven seasons of a modern drama centered on a Black family is a radical act in our industry and a triumph that has far exceeded every hope I held. Now I feel strongly that the story, which began as a sunrise of a suggestion from Oprah, is ready for its sunset as a dream fully realized. Queen Sugarhas been one of the true joys of my career, and my gratitude is buoyant and boundless.”
