Queen Sugar Season 5: Everything To Know About The Series!!

The fifth season of Queen Sugar, a show about siblings after the death of their father, aired in 2021.


Queen Sugar Series Overview

Nova, Charley, and Ralph are three of the five characters in Ava DuVernay’s latest television series, Queen Sugar. Nova is a “sunflower,” who grows from a young girl to an adult woman; whereas Charley is an eldest sister-like figure. The narrative follows the Bordelons, a family of farm workers in rural Louisiana who go through major difficulties after their father’s death. They have a father who abandoned an 800-acre sugarcane farm, which is now in their care.

  • Following the success of “I Am Big Bird,” PBS aired the sequel, which follows Nova’s journey in high school when she must deal with issues like body image and self-esteem. Rutina Wesley took on the role of Nova Bordelon, a strong journalist, and activist.
  • Dawn-Lyen Gardner played Charley Bordelon, a working wife, and mother who lives in Los Angeles.
  • Kofi Siriboe played the part of Ralph Angel Bordelon, a single father coping with unemployment while raising his son alone.

Differences and conflict are evident in each family, which you’ll notice in the series from the beginning.

For example, in the first episode of the series’ debut season, there is a conflict between Charley and Nova over attending to their father’s burial. The two siblings have distinct views on how to commemorate their father. Ralph Angel, on the other hand, is having a quarrel with Aunt Violet about her young son Blue’s attendance at the burial.

This is only one example, but there are several more throughout the fifth season.

Queen Sugar: Characters

Let’s meet the personalities that will appear on the screen multiple times, or perhaps I should say many.

  • Rutina Wesley as Nova Bordelon, the eldest one.
  • Charlotte “Charley” Bordelon West, the second child is portrayed by Dawn-Lyen Gardner.
  • Ralph Angel Bordelon, the youngest Bordelon is portrayed by Kofi Siriboe.
  • Nicholas L. Ashe is Micah West, Charley’s son.
  • Omar Dorsey as Hollingsworth “Hollywood” Desonier.
  • Dondre Whitfield as Remy Newell.

Queen Sugar Season 5

The fifth season debuted on February 16, 2021, and concluded with a two-hour series finale on April 20, 2021. In season 5, a lot has changed, but the issues and family melodrama have only gotten more complicated.

The first episode opens with something good, that is, Nova starts a new business and Micah begins a fresh college year.

Wait Wait!! What’s the most interesting thing about Season 5?

When you watch more episodes of Queen Sugar, you’ll see that COVID-19 has been involved in every one of them. The producer of the show has done a good job incorporating the epidemic into season 5 while retaining the narrative as planned.


Wrapping Up

One of the most fascinating elements of season 5 was how it evolved according to Covid-19. Because we all know how involved we were with the previous series because it had all of the family drama, producers have attempted to make it as relatable as possible.

Now is the time to act, so hold your cup of coffee in your hand and sit down at your favorite spot to begin Season 5 of Queen Sugar. For more family or real-life drama, check out our collection of movies and series.
