‘Greenleaf’ Season 2 Trailer: Oprah’s Back! (Watch)

3 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Own’s hit drama “Greenleaf,” starring Merle Dandridge, Keith David and Lynn Whitfield, explores a family that runs a megachurch in Memphis — but with deep-seated secrets. The series has been a ratings success for the cabler — and Netflix recently nabbed Svod rights.

Oprah Winfrey, who executive produces the series, has also played a recurring role in the drama as Grace’s (Merle Dandridge) Aunt Mavis — and from the looks of the season two trailer, she’s set to make an on-screen return.

The first season ended on a cliffhanger, with David’s Bishop Greenleaf threatened by the exposure of a crime he may have committed years ago. “Get ready: The judgment’s coming” he’s warned in the promo.

The women in his life will be facing problems, too: “When you feel that resentful spirit rising up inside of you, that’s when you’re actually in serious spiritual trouble.”

Netflix Nabs Svod Rights for Own’s ‘Greenleaf’ (Exclusive)

26 January 2017 1:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix and Lionsgate have inked a deal for the global streaming rights to “Greenleaf,” Variety has learned exclusively.

New episodes will still air in the U.S. on Discovery’s Own, but under the pact with Netflix, those new episodes will be available to Netflix customers outside the U.S. and Canada the day after their U.S. debut. All 13 episodes of Season 1 will be available to everyone on the service starting March 3.

The show has done well for the Oprah Winfrey Network: The June premiere was the biggest in Own’s short history in its target demographic of women 25-54, with a 2.18 rating in that demo, and it delivered an average of 2.1 million viewers per episode for its first season in Nielsen’s Live + Same Day ratings, and around 3 million once viewing within three days was counted. Own ordered another season of the series before it even premiered; Season 2 will bow on March 15.
