Greenleaf

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced this week that the fifth season of the NAACP Award-winning drama Greenleaf will return in June 2020. OWN also released a first-listen clip of the all-original new recording of “Goin Up Yonder,” by Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Tramaine Hawkins. 

 

In Season Five, The Greenleafs attempt to maintain a united front in the face of losing their church to Bob Whitmore and Harmony and Hope Ministries, but secrets past and present create what could be fatal fractures in the family’s fragile foundation. 

 

Greenleaf stars Merle Dandridge (“The Night Shift”) as Grace Greenleaf; Keith David (“Community”) as Bishop James Greenleaf; Lynn Whitfield (“The Josephine Baker Story”) as Lady Mae Greenleaf; Kim Hawthorne (“Rake”) as Kerissa Greenleaf; Lamman Rucker (“Meet the Browns”) as Jacob Greenleaf; and Deborah Joy Winans (“Whitney”) as Charity Greenleaf-Satterjee.
