OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has renewed its original drama Greenleaf for a third season.
Produced by Lionsgate in association with Harpo Films and Pine City, Greenleaf comes from writer/producer Craig Wright (Lost, Six Feet Under) and executive producers Clement Virgo (The Book of Negroes) and Oprah Winfrey (Selma). The second half of season two will return with a two-night premiere on August 15 and 16 on OWN and will regularly air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.
“We can’t wait to see what another season of Greenleaf will bring,” said Erik Logan, the president of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. “This series was instrumental in evolving OWN’s scripted programming and it continues to pull in viewers each week with its unique storytelling and characters.”
“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’s executive VP and 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.”
