today announced a fourth season renewal for the hit drama QUEEN OF THE SOUTH. Starring Alice Braga (“I Am Legend”), the series is based on the literary page-turner “La Reina Del Sur” by internationally acclaimed author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. Season 4 is set to return in 2019.
A co-production from Fox 21 Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions (UCP), QUEEN OF THE SOUTH is the #1 ad supported cable scripted series on Thursday nights at 9pm among key demos P18-49, P25-54, P2+, M18-49 and F18-49 year to date, and has delivered an average of 2.1MM total viewers P2+ this season.
QUEEN OF THE SOUTH tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza (Braga), a woman who is forced to run from the Mexican cartel and seek refuge in America. In Season 3, Teresa strikes out on her own, determined to build a new empire for herself. But as enemies old and new close in, she realizes that being Queen will require more work — and more sacrifice — than she ever imagined. Executive produced by David T. Friendly and Natalie Chaidez, the drama’s third season aired its finale on September 13.
