The seventh and final season for OWN’s critically-acclaimed series Queen Sugar will return on September 6.

Based on Deadline, this season will feature direction from an all-woman team. Along with the the show’s creator and executive producer Ava DuVernay, season 7’s directors may also include Kat Candler, Stacey Muhammad, showrunner Shaz Bennett, Patricia Cardoso, Aurora Guerrero, and DeMane Davis.

Queen Sugar tells the story of three siblings in rural Louisiana who must cope with the aftermath of their father’s death and their inheritance of his massive sugarcane farm. DuVernay’s series accommodates themes of racial profiling, slavery in America and its flawed criminal justice system, together with other struggles faced by Black people on this country.

“To all the things, there may be a season,” DuVernay said in an announcement for Variety. “And my producing partner Paul Garnes and I actually have had seven gorgeous seasons making ‘Queen Sugar’ with a remarkable solid and crew, alongside our partners at OWN and Warner Bros. Television.”

“To put in writing and produce seven seasons of a contemporary drama centered on a Black family is a radical act in our industry and a triumph that has far exceeded every hope I held,” she added. “Now I feel strongly that the story, which began as a sunrise of a suggestion from Oprah, is prepared for its sunset as a dream fully realized. Queen Sugar has been considered one of the true joys of my profession and my gratitude is buoyant and boundless.”

The solid of Queen Sugar features Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, and Kofi Siriboe. It also features Nicholas Ashe, Greg Vaughn, Greg Vaughn, Bianca Lawson, Tina Lifford, Omar J. Dorsey, Henry G. Sanders, and Timon Kyle Durrett.

The ultimate season of Queen Sugar will debut on Tuesday, September 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
