The season 3 trailer has been released for Queen Sugar.
The third season of the critically-acclaimed drama series from Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey returns as the Bordelons find themselves continuing their fight to save their family farm and father’s legacy while navigating their own personal journeys. They soon find that their fight extends beyond their close-knit family, but also to the community. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) remains in the thick of the trials and tribulations in both her personal and professional life as she continues to battle the Landry family while also trying to ensure Micah’s (Nicholas Ashe) safety and future. Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) is still reeling from learning from Darla (Bianca Lawson) that he might not be the biological father of his son, Blue (Ethan Hutchison), and attempts to push forward as the new cane season begins. A new and unexpected love in the form of an old friend comes into Nova’s (Rutina Wesley) life and challenges her long-held notions of relationships while also offering her something she didn’t think she could ever have.
For this season, the show continues to enlist its all-women directorial team assembled by Ava DuVernay, which includes DeMane Davis, Patricia Cardoso, Shaz Bennett, Maria Govan and Lauren Wolkstein. Many of them will be making their television directorial debut.
Queen Sugar was named Television Show of the Year from both American Black Film Festival (ABFF Honors) and African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) for the second consecutive year and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Best Drama Series.
Season 3 has a two-night premiere set for Tuesday, May 29, and Wednesday, May 30.
