“Queen of the South”
Premieres Thursday, June 8 at 10 PM ET/PT on USA Network

          In the season premiere, “El Cuerpo de Ceisto,” Teresa brokers a deal with an eccentric smuggler, Camila struggles to rebuild her empire, and Epifanio takes on a new partner he may not be able to control.

          “QUEEN OF THE SOUTH” tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. In the process, she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run.

 

          Starring Alice Braga (“City of God”) as Teresa, the original drama series is based on the global best-selling novel “La Reina Del Sur,” by internationally-acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte.  The literary page-turner also yielded one of the most popular super series of all time for USA’s sister network, Telemundo. The series also stars Verónica Falcón (“Besos de Azúcar”) as Camila Vargas, Justina Machado (“Six Feet Under”) as Brenda Parra, Peter Gadiot (“Tut”) as James Valdez, Hemky Madera (“Weeds”) as Pote Galvez and Gerardo Taracena (“Apocalypto”) as Cesar “Batman” Guemes. Guest stars include Joaquim de Almeida (“Our Brand is Crisis”), Jon Ecker (“Narcos”) and James Martinez (“Breaking Bad”).
