Fans are loving the new episodes of Queen of the South, but is there news of season 5 yet?
Even drug smugglers must have a queen. That's right, M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller’s exhilarating and dramatic crime series is finally back on screens with a brand new crop of episodes.
The show began airing in June 2016 and immediately attracted the attention of those who were still trying to fill a Breaking Bad-sized hole in their TV schedule. Here, we have a show which also deals heavily with drug distribution; Queen of the South began with Teresa (Alice Braga) as she fled Mexico in the aftermath of her drug-running boyfriend's murder.
Finding herself in Dallas, she hardly takes it easy. Instead of trying to escape the horrors of her past, she embarks on a quest to become a big-time drug smuggler and avenge her slain lover - ambitious to say the least.
Since the show first aired it's become a huge hit, having been renewed numerous times. We're now on season 4 and it's going down an absolute storm so far. So, what tricks does the queen have up her sleeve?
Is it on Netflix?
Fortunately, Queen of the South has set up shop over at Netflix!
You can watch - or rewatch, most likely - the first three seasons, with a total of thirty-nine episodes ready to dig into. Unfortunately, season 4 isn't available just yet.
But speaking of season 4, let's look into how many episodes we can expect once it does drop.
How many episodes in season 4?
Season 4 began airing on the USA Network on Thursday, June 6th 2019, and since, episodes have been airing weekly. Modern audiences are becoming increasingly used to having entire seasons readily available, with many Amazon and Netflix originals - for example - allowing all episodes to become available simultaneously.
On the other hand, Queen of the South fans still have to consume the show in serialised bites if they want to roll with it as its released. Season 4 boasts thirteen episodes in total, with the last set to air on Thursday, August 29th, 2019. For UK audiences, it'll likely drop on Netflix in wake of the final episode airing, but a date is yet to be confirmed.
So, you'll simply have to be patient, but one thing fans can't stop wondering is this: Will it be rewarded with renewal once again?
Queen of the South: Season 5
Of course, season 4 is still fresh and going strong. However, a lot of the time, popular TV shows are renewed even before the previous season has finished airing.
Queen of the South tends to be renewed pretty quickly after a season concludes, and as of yet, it has not been renewed for season 5. It's very likely that news of its renewal will reach fans in September after season 4 has wrapped up. Hopefully, UK audiences can dig into the season on Netflix then too, offering two lots of good news.
