The USA Network still hasn’t confirmed when the thrilling crime drama Queen of the South will return next year. The series has become an international hit thanks to being released on Netflix, but the upcoming fifth season was put on hold amid the outbreak of coronavirus. A new clue on Instagram may have given some idea when the series might return.

The latest installment of Teresa Mendoza’s (played by Alice Braga) rise to power shook things up by spreading the Queen of the South’s drug empire into New Orleans.

Fans have been on the lookout for new info regarding the highly anticipated new season of Queen of the South ever since last year’s explosive cliffhanger.


After facing off against Judge Lafayette (played by David Andrews) in New Orleans, drug queenpin Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) still has a target on her head.

The finale of season four kicked things into high gear when Teresa’s old partner, James Valdez (Peter Gadiot) made his long-awaited return and warned of an approaching threat.

During season four, Teresa struck new deals but failed to protect her godson Tony Parra (Julian Silva) from her conniving new foe, Judge Cecil Lafayette (David Andrews).

Now harboring a thirst for revenge, the drug mogul is preparing to go to war in the streets of the Big Easy and take full control over the Judge’s territory.


Unfortunately, the outbreak of coronavirus in March of this year left most television productions in a period of uncertainty.

Originally expected to return this year, the fifth season of Queen of the South was considerably pushed back, and the USA Network series still hasn’t resumed production.

However, some intriguing insights from principal cast member Molly Burnett have tipped fans off to a potential date for the start of the series’ filming schedule.
