Queen Sugar returns with its Season 6 premiere on Tuesday, September 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

What happens in Queen Sugar Season 6? Season 6 promises to be jam-packed, but all will not be sweetness and light. According to Essence, âThe new season of the show aims to tie together some of the loose ends left during the previous seasonâs finale earlier this year.â

Meanwhile, Queen Sugar director Lisa France told back in July 2021 that the action will have âa little bit of a jumpâ time-wise between the end of Season 5 and the start of Season 6.

France also teased some major bombshells when she told the outlet, âI donât think weâve ever seen anything like it, ever, what weâre going to see this year.

[It’s] pretty crazy stuff⦠itâs pretty bananas. What happens with our family, and all of the family actually dealing with all kinds of⦠again just kind of dealing with legal things. Thatâs all I can say.â

She also hinted at storylines that deal with the plight of Black farmers in America. âItâs what black folks face with their own land in the South that theyâve been facing forever. I mean, look at whatâs going on with farmers right now in this country.

We went from 100 million black farmers to 1 million black farmers,â she explained. âWeâre gonna talk about it. We try really hard to stay with the current time and whatâs going on. So youâll see some of that in this season.â

When does Queen Sugar come back? Queen Sugar returns with its Season 6 premiere on Tuesday, September 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

What happened in Season 5 of Queen Sugar? DuVernay wound up rewriting the bulk of Season 5âs 10 episodes to reflect the difficult and unfolding events across the nation back in 2020 and early 2021âincluding the spread of COVID-19, the death of George Floyd, widespread police violence and its aftereffects on Black America and the nation as a whole.

But much to the delight of the showâs numerous fans, Season 5 ended with the Bordelon siblings and their extended family all in an optimistic place.

âI really loved the intimacy of those scenes. I feel like they were such a true reflection of what so many of us found ourselves doing, which was having such deep conversations that maybe would never have happened had it not been for the pandemic with those closest to us in our worlds and in our homes,â Dawn-Lyen Gardner, who plays Charley Bordelon West on the series, told Deadline.

âIt was a conversation that Ava wanted to explore⦠it deepened and broadened and reflected back this larger social conversation that we all needed to have.â

Is the ensemble cast of Queen Sugar returning for Season 6? Yes, we are happy to report that all of your Queen Sugar favorites will be back for Season 6!
