On the eve of the launch of Season 2 of OWN’s “Queen Sugar,” the LA Film Festival will host a premiere of the first episode of the new season, and hold a conversation with Ava DuVernay who’ll be joined by the new set of women directors; like season 1, season 2 also features an all-woman directing team that includes Kat Chandler, DeMane Davis, Cheryl Dune, Aurora Guerrero and Amanda Marsalis.
The event will take place on June 19 at 7:30 pm at LACMA.
The 16-episode second season of the acclaimed drama series will premiere on the OWN network in a similar fashion as it did last season, with a two-night event, launching on June 20 and June 21, at 10 p.m.
The series, created by Ava DuVernay who also executive produces with Oprah Winfrey, chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana. Based on the book by Natalie Baszile, Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner and Kofi Siriboe star as the siblings.
OWN has released a full trailer for season 2 which is embedded below:
