Queen of The South Season 6: The End of A Drug Queen of The South

Queen of The South Season 6: Millions of viewers all over the world have tuned in to Queen of the South, a Netflix original series about a poor woman named Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) who rises through the ranks of a drug cartel.

In April, Netflix updated its library with the most recent episodes of the USA Network show, which viewers devoured in record time. However, those anticipating a Season 6 will be sorely let down: the currently airing episodes are the last of the series.

When the USA announced the cancellation of Queen of the South in the summer of 2021, they aired these new episodes.

Will Queen of The South Season 6 Return?

The show started airing in 2016. There were 62 episodes in total, with each season having 13 episodes (except the fifth). The renewal comes with word that Season 5 will have 10 new episodes in 2019. In 2020, when the pandemic finally hit, production ceased completely. The premiere was broadcast on April 7, 2021. Thereafter, it was revealed that Season 5 would be the last in the series run. On June 9, 2021, the series finale aired for the first time.

The premise of the show was about how Mendoza who is from Mexico, falls in love with a member of a drug cartel and tries to improve the conditions of her impoverished life. However, she later learns that her boyfriend has been killed, and she is consequently forced to flee. She leaves Canada and enters the USA. She then joins forces with someone she knew from her previous life to try and take out the rival drug cartel boss who is after her. She sets up her own cartel and manages to finally become rich and makes her way out of poverty. But with that comes new problems.

The End of A Drug Queen of The South

The fifth season of the TV show came to a bittersweet end. (Warning, major spoiler ahead!) The character of Mendoza, played by Alice Braga, brought a new perspective to the role women played in the world of the organized drug crime industry. The system is to blame for their plight, not Braga’s personality. To find some measure of happiness, she decides to strike out on her own and joins a family. Ultimately, the audience was shocked by the violent turn of events and Mendoza’s murder at the hands of James. What was even more shocking was learning that Mendoza had faked her own death and was now happily living it up in the tropics.

Season 5 was confirmed to be the final season in March 2021, a full month before the new episodes were set to air on USA.

At that time, Entertainment Networks (who own USA) chairperson Frances Berwick said in a statement: “For five incredible seasons, Queen of the South has captivated us with brilliant storytelling and bold, powerful characters.

“This series broke boundaries for the genre, and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with this incredible team of creators, cast,

and crew along with our studio partners at 20th Television and UCP. As we close this final chapter, we look forward to a great season culminating in a finale that will give our fans the ending they deserve.”

If that was the case, then why did they call it off? This is because the channel is cutting back on producing its own dramas. There were only three original dramas on the channel at the time the show ended: Queen of the South, The Sinner, and Dirty John. No third season of Dirty John has been announced, and The Sinner was canceled in November 2021. While USA’s original drama Chucky aired in late 2021 (along with Syfy’s), the network has not yet announced whether it will air a second season.

Could Netflix decide to bring Queen of the South back? Technically yes, though so far they have not done so with any USA show that has been a hit for them, such as Dare Me. Also, the USA brought the show to a definite conclusion, and there has been no news of a Netflix revamp in nearly a year since the series finale aired on USA.

According to an interview with Deadline, co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez expressed excitement over the prospect of writing a conclusive episode. “I felt this enormous amount of peace, ending the series,” she reflected. What happens to Teresa in the pilot is a sad beginning to a series that has the potential to be very dark, violent, and sad on multiple levels. Finishing the show in a sunny, beautiful place that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before adds a poetic and beautiful touch… That’s a conclusion that leaves me feeling very fulfilled, and I’m hoping the audience does too.
