This one is going to hurt for a lot of people!
The popular OWN show, Greenleaf, that follows the stories of a mega-church in Memphis has been cancelled after 5 seasons. No word has been given on exactly why OWN’s first scripted series and number 1 show will be ending.
In its final season, “the Greenleafs attempt to maintain a united front in the face of losing their church to Bob Whitmore and Harmony and Hope Ministries, but secrets past and present create what could be fatal fractures in the family’s fragile foundation. The Bishop continues working to mend his rift with Lady Mae while, day by day, Harmony and Hope’s grip on Calvary tighten,” according to a press release.
The series stars Merle Dandridge, Keith David, Lynn Whitfield, Kim Hawthorne, Lamman Rucker and Deborah Joy Winans.
Greenleaf has compiled 10 NAACP Image Award nominations and won Outstanding Drama Series in 2020. Greenleaf debuted in 2016 as OWN’s first scripted series.
The final season will air this June on OWN.
