The show has officially got a green light for a new season. The new date has not been released or anything regarding it has been announced.
“I’ll continue Grace’s prayer of gratitude with my own. I’m so grateful to everyone who holds space with us to have tough conversations, to mend our societal rifts. Thank YOU for watching, thank you cast, crew, writers, producers and, of course, @oprah. C u in 2020! #Greenleaf”, tweeted Merle Dandridge, who plays Grace in the show.
Fans are still not over what happened in the last season. It is said that the show will arrive itself without being announced before, and it can surely be said that it is almost here and the wait might be over!
This is the official synopsis for the upcoming chapter (via The Chicago Crusader):
“In Season Five, 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.“
In the last season, we could see the characters fighting against losing the church, and the odds were on their side. The season was also highly successful in its own accord, although it is argued to not be the best one till now. However, some go against it and say it was very elusive. So, the popularity of the show still grew but a gradual rate.
Also along with being elusive, the last season was the one that garnered the best reviews and best performance acclaims. The main will include, Merle Dandridge as Grace, Kim Hawthorne as Kerissa, Lamman Rucker as Jacob, Tye White as Kevin Satterlee, Deborah Joy Winans as Charity, Desiree Ross as Sophia, Keith David as Bishop James, Lynn Whitfield as Lady Mae.
Greenleaf Release Date
As mentioned before, there has been no official announcement about the release date about the new season. However, people are expecting the new season to arrive in August of this year, which is also, in fact, the release time of the show every year, although the season might get delayed a little bit due to the pandemic- COVID- 19 breaking out, still, the absolute date cannot be predicted.
During the show’s premiere in 2016, Winfrey stated that she had a personal connection to some parts of the Greenleaf narrative.
“The whole scene where Kerissa is attacking Grace at the table about, ‘Are you spiritual, or religious?’ I had that. I’ve also had that moment where Grace is saying out loud, ‘I swear to God,‘” she said (via Variety).
“I was a little girl once and I said that. And my father said, ‘Not in my house you won’t.'”
She added: “One of the writers in the room actually is an ‘every-Sunday-morning-church-going-person’…so it’s pretty authentic.“
