Sneak Preview Tuesday, May 1 at 10 PM ET/PT
on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network
OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network to air the final season of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” the series about the drama that comes with running a family-operated soul food empire. When Robbie Montgomery’s lung collapsed, the 1960’s backup singer and former Ikette had to hustle to keep her family afloat, so she whipped out her mother’s recipes and turned her second love of cooking into a soul food empire. In the final season, Miss Robbie inches closer to her lifelong dream, while her son Tim Norman finds himself at a crossroad after Hurricane Harvey forces him to close his latest restaurant venture, and he considers exiting the family business…for good.
As we say farewell to OWN’s favorite family, Miss Robbie is forced to consider what kind of legacy she will leave behind, and who will be chosen to take over the Montgomery soul food empire. In the May 1 season premiere, “You Got Me Runnin’,” it’s Hamburger Heaven’s grand opening, but Miss Robbie put Michelle in charge, and she stubbornly refuses help amid the chaos. In Houston, after closing the doors on Sweet Times due to Hurricane Harvey, Tim rethinks his position in the family business. The series will regularly air on Saturdays at 9 PM ET/PT beginning May 5.
