About "Queen Sugar"

In the series' third season, the contemporary drama returns as the Bordelons find themselves continuing their fight to save their family farm and father's legacy as they navigate their own personal journeys. They soon find that their fight extends beyond their close-knit family, but also to the community. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) remains in the thick of the trials and tribulations in both her personal and professional life as she continues to battle the Landry family while also trying to ensure Micah's (Nicholas Ashe) safety and future. Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) is still reeling from learning from Darla (Bianca Lawson) that he might not be the biological father of his son, Blue (Ethan Hutchison), and attempts to push forward as the new cane season begins. A new and unexpected love in the form of an old friend comes into Nova's (Rutina Wesley) life and challenges her long-held notions of relationships while also offering her something she didn't think she could ever have. The expansive cast also includes Tina Lifford as the siblings' free-spirited Aunt Violet; Omar J. Dorsey as Violet's much younger fiancé Hollywood Desonier; Dondré T. Whitfield as trusted Bordelon family friend Remy Newell; Henry G. Sanders plays Prosper Denton, a farmer and longtime friend of the late Bordelon family patriarch, Ernest; Additionally, recurring guest star Timon Kyle Durrett portrays Charley's estranged husband and pro basketball player Davis West.

"Queen Sugar" is produced for OWN by Warner Horizon Scripted Television. The executive producers are Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, Kat Candler, and Paul Garnes. The series is based on the book by Natalie Baszile.
