The popular OWN series debuted its second season back in June, earning incredible ratings in the adult and female demo. The series averages more than 2.4 million viewers with fans taking to Twitter with great commentary on each episode.

Along with the renewal, DuVernay has expanded her creative partnership with Oprah Winfrey via a first-look deal with Harpo Films for television and digital. A match made in heaven and a deal that will mean more fantastic content from DuVernay and Winfrey.
