Queen of the South on USA Network and Netflix is based on the book La Reina del Sur by author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. The story of Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) was transformed into a Spanish telenovela before reaching new heights with the American adaptation. The drama has been playing out for the past five years across the world.

Is Queen of the South ending? 

Season five of Queen of the South started in April 2021 on USA Network, showing what happened next after James Valdez’ (Peter Gadiot) unexpected return in the series four finale.

The series will be finishing tonight, Wednesday, June 9, in the States with episode 10 El Finale.

This is the shortest of all the series with the previous four seasons having 13 episodes each.

Unfortunately for fans, this evening’s episode will be Queen of the South’s last.

The drama was cancelled earlier this year but an official reason hadn’t been given.

Most likely it is because the series has run its course with Teresa now a queenpin as predicted in the very first episode.

This also means that there will be no season six on the horizon for viewers to look forward to.

In a statement, executive producers Dailyn Rodriguez, Ben Lobato, and David Friendly said: “We could not be prouder of our entire cast and crew that joined us on this magnificent journey.

“Queen of the South began shooting in Mexico City, brought us to faraway places like Malta and Colombia, and finally landed in New Orleans.

“We cannot wait to share the explosive final season with our devoted fans.

“And, of course, we could not have made this show without the talented and tireless Alice Braga, who brought our queen to life.”

While the drama is ending in America, international fans haven’t been able to watch the latest series.

USA Network is just for those residing in the States and so viewers around the world have to wait for the series to come out on Netflix.

A release date for the streaming service hasn’t been revealed as of yet.

Usually, it takes around a year before the drama is dropped on Netflix but script supervisor Barry Caldwell teased on Facebook that it could be “sooner”.

The penultimate episode of Queen of the South left everyone in shock.

James and Teresa had just confessed their love for one another but in the next scene, it is discovered that he is the mysterious sniper from the series one flash-forward.

So did the pair come up with a plan to get them away from the drug world or is Teresa really dead?

Queen of the South is available to watch on USA Network.
