Season 2 of the acclaimed drama series “Queen Sugar” will premiere on the OWN network in a similar fashion as it did last season, with a two-night event, launching on June 20 and June 21, at 10 p.m. on both nights.
In addition, OWN, along with “Queen Sugar” producer Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, also previously announced that SVOD rights to the series have gone exclusively to Hulu, with the first season premiering on the streaming platform on April 21 (that’s today), and subsequent seasons becoming available to stream following their initial season run on OWN.
And like season 1, season two will also feature an all-woman directing team that includes Kat Chandler, DeMane Davis, Cheryl Dune, Aurora Guerrero and Amanda Marsalis; other director names for what will be a 16-episode second season, are to be announced at a later date.
The series, created by Ava DuVernay who also executive produces with Oprah Winfrey, chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana. Based on the book by Natalie Baszile, Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner and Kofi Siriboe star as the siblings.
OWN has released a first look at season 2 via a teaser-trailer which is embedded below:
