Season two finds the siblings striving to honor the legacy of their father, who passed away unexpectedly. Ralph-Angel is trying to rebuild his life after jail, and secure a better future for his young son. Meanwhile, tension in the family starts to build when Charley relocates with her teenage son Micah to Saint Josephine, Louisiana, to help run the family business, the 800-acre sugarcane farm Queen Sugar Mill.

Once again, DuVernay enlisted an all-female directing team, including Kat Candler (“12 Monkeys”), DeMane Davis (“Lift”), Cheryl Dunye (“Stranger Inside”), Aurora Guerrero (“Mosquita y Mari”), and Amanda Marsalis (“Echo Park”), among others. “Sugar Queen” is produced for OWN by Warner Horizon Scripted Television.
