When is Queen Sugar season 6 out?

In a statement confirming the renewal, creator Ava DuVerrnay said: “What a joy and an honour to continue the stories of Queen Sugar with our partners at OWN and Warner Bros.
“On behalf of every producer, editor, costumer, grip, writer, cast member and all departments involved in making this series, we’re delighted to delve into a sixth season and to bring our beautiful audience more of the Bordelon family.”
Tina Perry, president of OWN added: ” When Ava came to us with the idea to revamp the storyline for the new season after production was halted due to the pandemic, we knew it was the right decision to give our viewers Ava’s unique perspective on the very real issues impacting their daily lives and the affect the demand for racial equality has had on the Black community and our society as a whole.”
Unfortunately, an exact release date for Queen Sugar season six has not been given.
However, Perry did tease the sixth outing will air “later this year.”
She said: ” We are proud to announce today the pickup of the show’s sixth season which will air later this year enabling us to further explore the compelling story of the Bordelon family.
” We are grateful to Ava, her creative team, the incredible cast and tireless crew for all the hard work they have put into the show.”
