Queen of the South Season 6: The fifth season finale aired on the USA Network on June 9, 2021. Will the show return for the sixth season?
One of the best crime thriller series is Queen of the South. It has become a huge hit on Netflix and the USA Network.
On June 9, 2021, the fifth season of the USA Network crime drama series came to an end. Sadly, it was the final season of the show.
On June 9, 2021, the USA Network broadcast Queen of the South’s season 5’s tenth and final episode. On April 7, 2022, Netflix US released Season 5. The crime drama series, which ran for more than five years, was based on Arturo Pérez-book Reverte’s La Reina del Sur. On USA Network, the first season debuted in 2016. Since then, it has distinguished itself as one of the top TV drama programmes. Queen of the South has ended after five successful seasons that aired in the last five years. The fans were hoping for Teresa Mendoza’s (Alice Braga) tale to continue, therefore this is undoubtedly disappointing news for them.
Why was ‘Queen of the South’ canceled after Season 5?
The fifth season of Queen of the South debuted on USA Network on April 7, 2021. On Wednesday, June 9, 2021, the series’ most thrilling and spectacular season came to a close with a stunning conclusion. With only 10 episodes, it was the shortest season of the show. Each of the past four seasons’ 13 episodes.
Unfortunately, Season 5 marked the end of the show. The show’s final season was confirmed by USA Network in March 2021, one month before the start of Season 5. The story has ended and the series has completed its arc. It implies that there won’t be a season 6, and fans will need to find other shows to fill the vacuum.
Executive producers David Friendly, Ben Lobato, and Dailyn Rodriguez issued a statement in which they said, “We could not be prouder of our entire cast and crew who joined us on this amazing trip.”
“Queen of the South started filming in Mexico City and took us to far-off locations like Malta and Colombia before arriving in New Orleans. We can’t wait to show our committed followers the thrilling final season.
Of course, without the gifted and tenacious Alice Braga, who brought our queen to life, we could not have produced this play.
Dailyn Rodriguez, a co-showrunner, discussed getting to give the show a conclusive finale in an interview with Deadline. “I felt this incredible sense of serenity and beauty when the series came to a finish,” she remarked. I believe that this show has the potential to be so violent, dark, and depressing on many levels, and it begins in a very depressing place with Teresa’s experience in the pilot. The series finale in this sunny, lovely location, which is unlike anything we’ve ever seen on the show, is full of poetry and beauty. I hope the viewer agrees that the finale is incredibly fulfilling on an emotional level.
According to some accounts, the series received a fitting ending after season 5 because USA Network is no longer producing original dramas. There were just three original dramas left on the channel when Queen of the South ended: The Sinner, Dirty John, and Queen of the South.
The Sinner was terminated by USA Network in November 2021 after its fourth season. Even after two years, Dirty John has not received a third season renewal. The original programme Chucky was broadcast on USA Network in late 2021, however it wasn’t an exclusive. Syfy was given access to it. There are currently no original dramas on USA Network.
Queen of the South witnessed a constant decline in rating over the years
Queen of the South’s rating has been dropping season after season despite being one of the most watched crime dramas on television. In comparison to Season 3, which averaged 1.13 million viewers, Season 4 attracted 0.92 million viewers. There were roughly 0.75 million viewers for the fifth season.
Production expenditures for crime dramas like Queen of the South are very high. Therefore, if the ratings are below par, it would be advisable for the producers to withdraw.
Can Netflix revive the series?
Netflix’s Queen of the South has achieved enormous success. Could Queen of the South be renewed by Netflix? Undoubtedly, but the streaming juggernaut hasn’t yet brought back any USA Network programming. Additionally, USA Network gave the series a fitting ending. Season five of the USA Network series has been over for more than a year, and Netflix has yet to provide an update.
Fans are suggesting a spin-off series
There are numerous ideas for potential spin-offs while viewers worldwide wait for season 5 to launch on Netflix. Fans think that the creators can develop the plot into a spin-off television series. Even some fans have urged that Teresa Mendoza’s life in concealment be the main focus of the plot.
The creators or the channel, however, have not yet made any announcements. However, given the popularity of the series, we are confident that it will return in some capacity.
Where and how to watch Queen of the South?
Netflix offers Queen of the South seasons 1 through 5 for international viewers.
The popular telenovela La Reina del Sur, which aired on USA’s sister network Telemundo, was adapted into the television series Queen of the South. Both programmes are live-action renditions of Arturo Perez-book Reverte’s La Reina Del Sur.
Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga), a Mexican lady from the streets who becomes the ruler of the largest drug empire in the world, is the subject of the television series. Her ascent to dominance in the largely male-dominated drug industry is highlighted in the series.
