Ava DuVernay’s gorgeous family drama Queen Sugar is returning, and it looks just as incredible as you remember.
The second season of Queen Sugar is set to return June 20 and 21 on OWN, and this season is all about legacy. Based on the book by Natalie Baszile and set in Saint Josephine, Louisiana, the Bordelon siblings are all dealing with the fall out of their past decisions. Still reeling from the demise of her marriage Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) is forging ahead, opening the first Black-owned sugar mill in Louisiana. Nova (Rutina Wesley) is trying to reconcile her role as a Black Lives Matter activist while dealing with her personal relationship and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siroboe) is trying to decide how to come to terms with the contents of his father’s revised will. Omar J. Dorsey, Tina Lifford, Bianca Lawson, Dondre T. Whitfield, Timon Kyle Durrett, Nicholas L. Ashe and Ethan Hutchison will also return.
This season, all 16-episodes of the Oprah Winfrey produced drama will be helmed by women including Kat Chandler, DeMane Davis, Cheryl Dune, Aurora Guerrero and Amanda Marsalis.
Ahead of the premiere, you can catch the first episode of this season at the LA Film Festival. Ava DuVernay will be joined by the new set of women directors to discuss their vision for this season of Queen Sugar. The event will take place on June 19 at 7:30 pm at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Queen Sugar will premiere during a two-night event on June 20 and June 21 at 10 PM.
