Check out the new trailer for Season 5 of OWN's hit dramatic series Queen Sugar. The show's storyline will sort of pick up where they left off last season as well as incorporate the Corona-Virus Pandemic, the Black Lives Matter Movement, police brutality, systematic racism and more.  

Read the official statement about Season 5 below and watch the trailer: 

Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) remains thick in the battle with the Landry family as she uses the system of local government to protect the community and the farmers who own land, while coming to terms with her son Micah (Nicholas Ashe) as he navigates his freshman year at Xavier University, an HBCU. Nova (Rutina Wesley) launches her new website to support the community while moving out of the Ninth Ward and settles into her romantic relationship with Calvin (Greg Vaughn). Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) works to manage fatherhood with son Blue (Ethan Hutchison) and a healthy path forward with girlfriend Darla (Bianca Lawson) despite constant threats to his land and home. Queen Sugar also features Omar Dorsey, Tina Lifford and Henry G. Sanders. 

Queen Sugar premieres on Tuesday, February 16 at 8 p.m. on OWN.
