Thanks to OWN’s continued success, Oprah Winfrey is living her best life and loving it!
Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey’s latest TV venture, Queen Sugar, hasn’t even premiered yet and it’s already been renewed for a second season. The Warner Horizon Television-produced series kicks off as a two-night event on Sept 6th with 11 additional episodes to follow every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Excited about the early renewal, OWN president Erik Logan says, “When we saw the first cut from Ava we knew right away that we wanted a second season.” He continued, “We think viewers are going to connect with the deeply layered characters and powerful story and are excited to be able to share with them Ava’s director’s cut on premiere night without interruption. We are proud to be a network that supports a filmmaker’s creative vision.”
So prepare to be hypnotized by the “lives and loves of three estranged siblings” searching for healing after tragedy strikes their family.
