Oprah's "Greenleaf" Renewed for Its 3rd Season
Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has renewed its original drama “Greenleaf” for Season 3.
If you don't know what the show is about, it's a dramatic series about a megachurch and the family behind it all. Many people believe that they're probably the most lovable group of people, but there's so much that goes behind the closed doors of worship... The crazy part about it? Adultery, greed and even more all uncovered by the daughter of the church's leader; who's been absent from the church for over 20 years. This is definitely a must-watch!
Previously announced, the second half of season two will return with a two-night premiere on Tuesday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and will regularly air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
"Greenleaf" takes viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. The series centers on the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf who has returned home after 20 years on the occasion of the mysterious death of her sister, Faith.
"We're excited to extend our relationship with Oprah Winfrey and the OWN team for a third season of the hit series 'Greenleaf,'" said Lionsgate Executive Vice President & Head of Worldwide Scripted Television Chris Selak. "The combination of a brilliant creator, an incredibly talented cast and inspirational music have positioned 'Greenleaf' for a long run, and we can hardly wait to see where the third season takes us."
Year to date, "Greenleaf" is the #5 original scripted series on ad-supported cable in W25-54 in Live+3. It is Wednesday night's #2 original scripted cable series for W25-54 and one of the Top 4 original scripted cable series for African-American women and total viewers.
