                            'Greenleaf' season 3: The Oprah Winfrey Network released the official trailer it's hit megachurch drama series

The Oprah Winfrey Network revealed the official trailer for season 3 of its hit megachurch drama series 'Greenleaf.' The series stars Keith David, Lynn Whitefield, and Merle Dandridge. The third season of the show is all set to premiere on August 28 and August 29 at 10 pm. The last season of 'Greenleaf' became Wednesday night's number one original cable series for African-American women and averaged over 2 million viewers. 

During season 3 of 'Greenleaf,' all the violent and turbulent forces that Grace's return to Memphis unleashed could potentially destroy not only the church her family built but also the family itself. Last season saw the shocking truth of Bishop's infidelities with Lady Mae's sister as well as repercussions from his current dalliance with Rochelle Cross lead to chaos and war in the 'Greenleaf' home.

The Bishop and Lady Mae are headed towards a collision course unless God or Grace intervenes or else the only remaining solution would be divorce. In the wake of all the marital mess, Lady Mae attempts to reconnect with Maxine Patterson who is an old friend and a world-famous Christian motivational speaker in the hope to reclaim her forsaken call to preach. 

This would mean asking for something that no lady has done before which is to survive as the sole head pastor of a megachurch after a rift between its founding couple. Meanwhile, Grace is working undercover in the company of Rochelle to try and figure out what Rochelle's motives and true identity are before the bishop is swept away by vanity and desire. 

Across town at Triumph, Jacob and Kerissa are hoping not to make the same mistakes that the Bishop and Lady Mae made as they work towards building their own empire while managing to parent their teenage daughter Zora. However, the roots of sin delve deep, and old habits die hard. 

Sophia's faith is tested due to an unforeseen medical issue, Charity struggles to make peace with Kevin, and find her place in the world while Grace works hard to keep an abused woman from death row for the crime of defending her own life. Darius finds himself conflicted as he is entangled in a growing strained relationship with Grace. Season 3 certainly looks very promising with a lot more drama and chaos! 

The series was created by award-winning writer and executive producer Craig Wright. Other executive producers include Oprah Winfrey and Lionsgate Television. Clement Virgo also serves as an executive producer and director. 'Greenleaf' is produced for OWN by Lionsgate in association with Harpo Films and Pine City. Viewers can catch up on season 1 and 2 on Netflix.
