Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay & More at “Queen Sugar” Red Carpet Finale Event

Everyone is talking about Queen Sugar and this season did not disappoint. A solid family-drama series that has everyone at the edge of their seats thinking, ‘what would I do if I was in their position?’, has swept us off our feet. The season finale came with a HUGE special with the entire cast and supporting characters in a rare sit-down interview in front of a live audience. So much melanin was on the stage as we laughed, cheered, and impatiently waited for some teasers about season 3. Just check out these images and let us know what you thought about the finale of season 2.

 

About “Queen Sugar”
From award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey, the contemporary drama “Queen Sugar” follows the Bordelon siblings who struggle to move forward with their lives as they strive to honor the legacy of their father following his unexpected passing. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, “Unforgettable”) relocates to Saint Josephine, Louisiana to help run the family business. As the only black female sugarcane mill owner, she must fight to regain her independence while rebuilding her relationships with her estranged siblings. Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe, “Girls Trip”) struggles to transform from a formerly incarcerated single father to a landowner in the eyes of his family as he works to restore his relationship with his son’s mother. Nova (Rutina Wesley, “True Blood”) finds herself torn between her activism and her desire to be loved. Together, they must learn to rely on one another as they navigate their tenuous bonds as family.
The expansive cast also includes Tina Lifford (“Parenthood”) as the siblings’ free-spirited Aunt Violet; Omar J. Dorsey (“Ray Donovan,” “Selma”) as Violet’s much younger boyfriend, Hollywood Desonier; Dondré T. Whitfield (“Mistresses”) as trusted Bordelon family friend Remy Newell; Timon Kyle Durrett (“Single Ladies”) as Charley’s estranged husband and pro basketball player Davis West; Nicholas L. Ashe (“The Lion King” National Tour) as Charley and Davis’ teenage son, Micah; Ethan Hutchison (“The Path”) as Ralph Angel’s son, Blue; and Bianca Lawson (“Rogue”) as Darla, Blue’s mother who battles drug addiction. Additionally, guest star Henry G. Sanders (“Rocky Balboa”) recurs as Prosper Denton, a farmer and longtime friend of the late Bordelon family patriarch, Ernest.
“Queen Sugar” is produced for OWN by Warner Horizon Scripted Television. The series is based on the book by Natalie Baszile.
