The series, which started airing in June 2016, follows the life of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. The show is based on the bestselling novel named 'La Reina Del Sur', written by internationally-acclaimed Spanish author Arturo Perez-Reverte. After fleeing Mexico, Teresa embarks on creating an empire for herself in the international drug trade and forms alliances and finds enemies on her journey. The thrilling crime drama series follows Teresa's exciting journey, while she builds an empire for herself with the same drug cartel that had her on the run.


In season four, Teresa will begin her reign in New Orleans and remain focused on her sense of family, while building businesses on the East Coast. According to co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez, "Teresa is finally enjoying the fruits of her labor" in the new season,  and in "her involvement with James [Peter Gadiot] and Guero [Jon Ecker], Teresa recognizes the pitfalls of being entangled with someone in the business. As the season progresses… we may see her fall into a new romance with a local musician," he said.
