Queen of the South Season 6: Is the Show Cancelled?

Queen of the South Season 6

This beloved American drama series first premiered way back in 2016. The fans had become obsessed with the series and quite justifiably so. The show was based on La Reina del Sur, which is a telenovela. It was again an adaptation of another book that was written by Arturo Perez Reverte and shared the same name as the telenovela.

After a successful run of 5 seasons, the show stopped producing any more seasons. This made the fans of the show very sad. The passionate and loyal fan base that the series had secured in a short time is now worried. They are anxious to know whether or not the show will carry on.

If you are such an ardent fan of the show then chances are that you are missing your favourite show. Even though there are no official updates regarding season 6 here we have brought together all the information and details that are available regarding an upcoming season of the show.

What is the release date of Queen of the South season 6?

The first season of the show was aired in June 2016. After that, the production of the show had to be called off for a while owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show was again resumed after a short break and continued to mesmerize its fans.

The problem now is that the show seems to have been canceled by the production team itself. After a successful run of 5 seasons, the show stands canceled.

While it is commendable that in the 5th and the last season of the show, the creators maintained the benchmark of brilliance that the creators had set for themselves in the preceding seasons of the show, the question lingers as to why the show was canceled. 

Some sources suggest that the show had become unable to produce fresher and original content. Other sources suggest that there was a shift in the production house.

While it is not known as of yet as to why the show was cancelled it is reality that the show indeed stands cancelled at the moment.

What could have been the plot of Queen of the South season 6?

Whatever the reason, it becomes very difficult for a fan to let go of the hope that their favorite show will make a comeback with a new season. Here is a recap of what the show has been like and what a possible plotline for season 6 might have looked like.

The first season of the show dealt mainly with Teresa Mendoza and her rise to fame and power. Coming from a background of poverty, the woman gradually yet steadily rises to the position of the head of a drug cartel. This is a risky game. The next season follows how she makes her way through the various twists and turns that her profession poses before her as she tries to maintain and develop proper bonds with established personalities in the field.

The last season of the show ends on a rather dramatic note. As she keeps on losing more family members, Mendoza decides to fake her death. This serves as the only option for her to free herself from the shackles of the underworld.

This ending does not leave much scope for a possible season 6 to happen. The fans have to make peace with the decision that the production team has taken.
