“Queen Sugar”
Season Finale Wednesday, November 30 at 10 PM ET/PT on OWN
 
          In the season finale, "Give Us This Day," Charley continues to make calculated decisions about Davis' basketball career and her desire to secure an investor in the farm. Davis attempts to repair his relationship with his son, Micah, but he faces resistance. Meanwhile, Nova and Calvin finally reunite; however, their relationship causes controversy in the community. Violet learns of Hollywood's departure and tries to make amends, and Ralph Angel makes a shocking discovery that changes everything.

          “Queen Sugar” chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana: Charley, the savvy wife and manager of a professional basketball star; Nova, a world-wise journalist and activist; and Ralph Angel, 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 in order to run an ailing sugarcane farm in the Deep South. When the siblings learned that the ancestors of nearby farmers once owned Bordelon ancestors as slaves, their resolve became even stronger to save their late father’s sugar cane farm. The series is based on the book by Natalie Baszile.

          Rutina Wesley stars as Nova Bordelon, a formidable journalist and activist based in New Orleans. Her life, and that of her brother and their extended family, undergoes significant change when her sister, Charley, returns to Louisiana from Los Angeles to help run the family sugarcane farm.

 

          Dawn-Lyen Gardner stars as Charley Bordelon West, the charismatic and savvy manager and wife of professional basketball superstar Davis West, with whom she has a challenging, conflicted relationship. The proud mother of Micah, Charley is originally from New Orleans, but never seems to get the time to go back home in the midst of her busy, exciting and public life in Los Angeles.

          Kofi Siriboe stars as Ralph Angel Bordelon, the youngest Bordelon sibling. Formerly incarcerated and somewhat worn out by life, Ralph Angel is trying to make a new start — and find a job — while raising his beloved 6-year-old son Blue with the help of family members, notably his aunt Violet.

          Omar J. Dorsey stars as Hollywood Desonier, a rugged, resourceful man and staunch supporter of the Bordelon family. The longtime boyfriend of Violet Bordelon (aunt to Charley, Nova and  Ralph Angel), Hollywood clearly loves her — and doesn’t think anything of their 20-year age difference.
