Release Date: Greenleaf Season 6
The official announcement is out, Greenleaf will not return for Season 6. The creators at OWN announced to ‘Deadline’ that there wouldn’t be any Season 6. However, don’t get disappointed; we have good news for you! Many sources suggest that the creators are coming up with a spinoff series. The creators had initially decided that Greenleaf would premiere only five seasons. Oprah Winfrey and Craig Wright had decided this when they were shooting the five seasons of Greenleaf.
Season 5 did tie up the entire show in a mature manner. No loose ends were left unturned. Furthermore, the cast and crew also put up rather emotional messages on Twitter and Instagram, bidding farewell. With these enthralling messages, fans were sorry to hear the end of the enigmatic Greenleaf series. However, on May 19, 2020, Greenleaf took to twitter, posting ‘Hallelujah.’ The post came along with a short teaser trailer. We still await news regarding the cast and crew for the upcoming spinoff series. OWN announced that the fan investment helped accelerate the production of this series! Such is the power of the fans!
Cast: Greenleaf Season 6
As mentioned above, Greenleaf will not air Season 6. However, we may see the same cast in the spinoff series that is currently under production. Sources expect additions to the crew as well. Keith David played the role of Bishop James Greenleaf. Moreover, James is none other than the protagonist of the show. Keith plays his role rather wonderfully. The renowned actor has played a part in many other movies as well. Also, some of his notable work includes Community, Gargoyles, and Spawn. Lynn Whitfield played the role of the First Lady, Daisy Mae Greenleaf. Just like Keith David, Lynn is world-renowned as well. She has acted in movies such as Solace and the Josephine Baker Story.
The couple’s children are Grace Greenleaf, Jacob Greenleaf, and Charity Greenleaf. Merle Dandridge, Lamman Rucker, and Deborah Joy Winans play their roles, respectively. Grace is the oldest child in the family who decided to return home after a long twenty years. Jacob, the son, is the second born in the family who is also a Pastor, working at the Church. The youngest child, Charity, plays the role of the Minister of Music. The cast has previously acted in other movies and shows as well.
