The Oprah Winfrey network and Ava DuVernay's 'Queen Sugar' is coming back for a third season at the end of this month and from the looks of it, it is set to be as dramatic as ever.
According to showrunner Kat Candler, season 3 will be all about the "journey of fatherhood".
The newly appointed showrunner reportedly spoke at Paley Fest in Los Angeles on Saturday. "I’m excited about just watching the complexities of that relationship unfold...I’m excited about some godfather s**t."
The series, which focuses on the lives of the Bordelon family as they deal with sibling dramas and relationships. Set in Louisiana, estranged siblings named Nova, Ralph Angel, Charley and Earnest struggle to honor their late father's legacy. Nova is a journalist and activist, Ralph is a formerly incarcerated single dad, and Charley is a business savvy woman finding her footing as a manager to a basketball star.
As the story progresses, they deal with the ties of family and the negativity around it. And as they fight with their own demons and each other, each one discovers their own place in the scheme of things. The series is based on the book of the same name by Natalie Baszile. Its cast is also incredibly diverse.
This upcoming season, the Bordelons will continue their strife to keep their father's honor and their family's farm. This season will also show how their fight moves from their own family to the community as well.
She also revealed that (spoiler alert) Blue Bordelon's true paternal routes had moved Oprah to the point that she had to call him.
Blue is portrayed by actor Ethan Hutchinson, who has been critically acclaimed for the role. The revelation of baby Blue’s true paternity, and particularly his performance apparently moved Winfrey so much she contacted him to tell him so.
Blue's role is to be critical in this plot in the season, as he explores growing up and how he feels about his father as he discovers his own darker places.
