‘Greenleaf’ Season 5, August 11, 2020 Episode 8 Is The Series Finale. Season 6 Is Not Happening
Hey, “Greenleaf” fans. We are back on here to deliver one, last Greenleaf article for you guys. That’s right. This will be the last time we ever write another article for Greenleaf because this current season 5 is indeed the final season forever. Tonight’s episode 8 is the series finale episode.
So, if any of you guys were wondering if there will be a new season 6, we unfortunately have to tell you that there will not be anymore new seasons of Greenleaf. The show is over forever. We’re not sure why the show is ending. We just know that it is.
This last episode 5 averaged 1.273 million LIVE viewers per episode,and a 0.28 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographics. The last episode 7 , which aired back on August 4, 2020, brought in 1.344 million LIVE viewers and a 0.32 ratings score.
The highest-viewed episode was episode 6 with 1.361 million LIVE viewers. The lowest-viewed episode was episode 2 with 1.140 million LIVE viewers.
The highest-rated episode was episode 6 with a 0.34 ratings score. The lowest-rated episodes were episodes 2, 4 and 5. They all tied with a 0.24 ratings score.
So, those were very strong numbers for a cable show. They’re so strong that we’re pretty surprised the show wasn’t given a new season 6. But, we’re not looking at the financial books for OWN.
Actually, we just looked deeper into this. Apparently, the plan for Greenleaf from the start was just to have five seasons and then end it.
Here’s some positive news we just found out. OWN is currently working on a spin-off show for the Greenleaf series. OWN is working with Lionsgate to develop it.
They put out a press release for it, which states the following: “Oprah Winfrey Network is in development with Lionsgate on a spin-off of the network’s critically-acclaimed hit megachurch drama “Greenleaf” from award-winning creator and executive producer Craig Wright. The network revealed the development news with a spin-off teaser spot.
From the inception of “Greenleaf,” Wright and executive producer Oprah Winfrey envisioned that the story told by the Lionsgate and Harpo Films produced series would span five seasons, with Wright contemplating a spin-off. These plans accelerated when fans expressed their support for the show after its final season was announced, reaffirming its passionate fan base.
“Greenleaf” is produced for OWN by Lionsgate in association with Harpo Films and Pine City. Executive producers are Oprah Winfrey, Craig Wright, Clement Virgo, and Kriss Turner Towner.”
The press release didn’t mention any potential dates for when this Greenleaf spin-off might air. So, all we can tell you, right now, is just to look out for it in the future.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got for this latest “Greenleaf” TV show report, but definitely stay tuned for the Greenleaf spin-off updates in the future.
