When one chapter closes another begins. Just as fans of OWN’s hit show ‘Greenleaf’ were shocked and disappointed when the news dropped that the upcoming 5th season would be the last. Now we can shout a collective ‘hallelujah’– the ‘Greenleaf’ saga will go on! A spin-off series is in the works at OWN!
The project is in the early days of development, so there’s no word yet on which characters from the series might be featured in the spinoff. Greenleaf creator Craig Wright will also develop the follow-up show.
Wright and executive producer Oprah Winfrey had long envisioned Greenleaf as a five-season story, and Wright had considered a spinoff. After seeing an outpouring of support for the show with the announcement of its final season, plans for a spinoff accelerated.
Greenleaf centers on a Memphis family that runs a sprawling megachurch in Memphis and whose scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as their faithful. The series stars Merle Dandridge, Keith David, Lynn Whitfield, Kim Hawthorne, Lamman Rucker and Deborah Joy Winans.
This is going to great. There are so many ways and characters stories they can explore so the story arcs are limitless!
We can’t wait…
