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 up with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run.
USA Network announced today that Queen of the South will be coming to an end after its upcoming fifth season. The news arrives a year and a half after the drama was renewed for its now-final run.
The veteran series has been a solid performer for the network, often ranking as cable television's top scripted series in its Thursday night time slot in numerous key demographics.
Queen of the South follows the story of a woman out to take down the leader of a drug trafficking ring that has her on the run in America after her boyfriend was murdered in Mexico. The series is based on the best-selling novel "La Reina Del Sur" by acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
Season 5 of Queen of the South premieres on Wednesday, April 7 at 10:00pm.
