When Queen Sugar premiered in September, it delivered the highest-rated two-episode debut in network history, averaging 2.4 million total viewers and a 1.9 W25-54 rating over its two-night premiere. In OWN’s key demo of W25-54, the series was the highest-rated two-episode debut in network history.
Queen Sugar is an adaptation of Natalie Baszile’s novel of the same name and follows the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana: Nova (Rutina Wesley); a world-wise journalist and activist, Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner); the savvy wife and manager of a professional basketball star, and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe); a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption. After a family tragedy, the Bordelons must navigate the triumphs and struggles of their complicated lives when they inherit an ailing sugarcane farm in the Deep South.
