Expected release date, cast updates and news
OWN announced in November 2021, ahead of the season six finale, that Queen Sugar would return for its seventh and final season in 2022. Since its debut, the series has been praised for its richly drawn characters and for tackling timely issues ranging racism to the Covid-19 pandemic (and their intersection). Similarly, Queen Sugar made headlines for its all-female cast of female directors, many of whom launched their careers as a result of the show.
In an official statement, creator Ava DuVernay reflected on the series’ conclusion. “There is a time for everything.” “And my producing partner Paul Garnes and I had seven wonderful seasons making Queen Sugar with a phenomenal cast and crew, alongside our partners at OWN and Warner Bros.
Television,” DuVernay said. “To write and produce seven seasons of a modern drama centered on a black family is a radical act in our industry and a triumph that far exceeds any hope I had.” Now I’m confident the story, which began with a suggestion from Oprah, is ready for its sunset as a fully realized dream. Queen Sugar has been one of the real joys of my career, and my thanks are boundless.
Queen Sugar Season 7 Release Date

Ava DuVernay already knows how it’s going to end
Ava DuVernay is still thinking about the final scene of Queen Sugar. “I didn’t think about how to get to the end; I just know what it will be. “I’m excited to know where all this is going,” DuVernay told Deadline. “The adventure will take steps to come to the conclusion of the journey as we begin to write more.”
Hopefully the story will end well. “The dark joy is beautiful in this family,” Lifford said of the season six finale and its implications for season seven. In the finale, the Bordelon siblings expanded their families, Ralph Angel and Darla welcoming a child, Davis, and Charley agreeing to remarry and move to Los Angeles, and Nova and Dominic getting married. “It can’t and won’t always be perfect, but it’s a start.”
The series, based on an eponymous novel, immerses viewers in the daily life of African-Americans. It addresses important racial issues as well as issues such as culture and gender. Another intriguing aspect of the production is the all-female direction and predominantly black cast. The series has been praised for its distinct approach. According to the plot, the Bordelons are three siblings, two sisters and one brother, who own an 800-acre sugar cane farm. They must move to rural Louisiana from various parts of the United States in order to live together and run this “business”. In fact, the whole series is imbued with an atmosphere of African-American survival in a society that denies them equal rights.
