“Queen Sugar” season 5 has officially wrapped and we are one step closer to reuniting with the Bordelon family!
The show’s creator Ava DuVernay announced the exciting news via Instagram on Friday night writing:
That’s a wrap on Season Five of QUEEN SUGAR. My goodness. A challenge to say the least. But despite Covid, quarantines, hurricanes, hissyfits, Zoomitis, masks and shields and rapid tests galore, we made it!
This exceptional, dedicated crew rose to every occasion, every obstacle and hurdled them like Olympians. The crew was led by my producing partner @paulgarnes who put together a safety plan that went above and beyond.
We never shut down because of him and @cowwmonster and the phenomenal AD team and HODs. The directors were superior, led by producing director @lmwolk. She, @lisafrance2067 and @sh00ter_ worked under wild circumstances and did it all with grace and good vibes. Incredible.
The cast was its usual beautiful self. A united team of actors who reach deeper each and every season to explore the expanse of Black identity. This work may be their best yet.
I join with Paul and our fellow EP @sparks.anthony in saluting our family in New Orleans tonight. Tonight is their night. You did that! And we celebrate you each and all. Thank you, thank you, thank you and bless you. – Ava [?: Paul Garnes]

I’m super excited about the new season especially considering the fact that everything was rewritten to reflect the pandemic.
I will keep you posted as soon as a premiere date is announced!
