'Greenleaf' Spinoff In Development At OWN

After announcing that the fifth season of the show would be the last, OWN has announced that they are in development with Lionsgate on a spinoff of megachurch drama, Greenleaf.

No details are known about the plot of the spinoff or if any characters from Greenleaf would star in the new series.

As the network stays, from the inception of Greenleaf, creator Craig Wright and executive producer Oprah Winfrey envisioned that the story would span five seasons, with Wright contemplating a spinoff. "These plans accelerated when fans expressed their support for the show after its final season was announced, reaffirming its passionate fan base," said the network.

Greenleaf takes viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. The series stars Merle Dandridge as Grace Greenleaf; Keith David as Bishop James Greenleaf; Lynn Whitfield as Lady Mae Greenleaf; Kim Hawthorne as Kerissa Greenleaf; Lamman Rucker as Jacob Greenleaf; and Deborah Joy Winans as Charity Greenleaf-Satterjee.

The fifth and final season of Greenleaf will premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The first four seasons of the show are available on Netflix.
