Ambitions has set its midseason premiere date on OWN!

The soapy primetime drama series will be back on Tuesday, November 12.

The series centers around the intense rivalry between formidable legal eagles Stephanie Carlisle Lancaster (Robin Givens) and Amara Hughes (Essence Atkins), former best friends from college who find themselves adversaries in both their personal and professional lives. The series also stars Brian White, Kendrick Cross, Brely Evans, Gino Pesci, Erica Page and more.

New episodes will also feature Mara Hall as Darcia Lancaster, Rondell’s cousin and childhood best friend, and Rick Hearst as Jerry Lannister, the high-powered attorney and former law school classmate of Stephanie.

The official description of the remainder of the season: The midseason finale last August ended on an explosive cliffhanger when Senior Lancaster (Tony Vaughn) was murdered outside of his restaurant by a mysterious killer. In the series’ return, Rondell (Brely Evans) and Evan (Brian White) team up to demand justice for the murder of their father, however, a new threat emerges to keep both off the case. Stephanie (Robin Givens) has a checkmate moment when Amara (Essence Atkins) discovers her in Titus’s (Kendrick Cross) hotel room. This fuels Amara’s desire to take down the unstoppable Stephanie once and for all. Bella (Erica Page) faces every mother’s nightmare.
