Queen Sugar‘s last season finally has a premiere date: Season 7 of OWN’s award-winning drama will kick off Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 8/7c, the cabler announced Saturday.
Creator and executive producer Ava DuVernay will return to direct the series finale, wrapping up seven seasons of the all-women directorial team that she originally envisioned at the outset of production back in 2016.
In addition to its scheduling news, the network previously announced in July that Kaci Walfall will reunite with Naomi co-creator DuVernay by way of a guest-starring role in Sugar‘s last hurrah. Details are not yet available for Walfall’s role nor the character being played by Greenleaf vet Lamman Rucker, who is also set to appear in the upcoming season.
The OWN family drama’s end point was announced back in November, when it was renewed for a seventh and final season. “To everything, there is a season,” series creator DuVernay said in a statement at the time. “And my producing partner Paul Garnes and I have had seven gorgeous seasons making Queen Sugar with a remarkable cast and crew, alongside our partners at OWN and Warner Bros. Television.”
