US crime drama Queen of the South will wrap with its upcoming fifth season.
The show has followed Braga as Teresa Mendoza, a woman who goes from escaping the Mexican cartel to starting her own drug cartel in America. It is based on the bestselling novel La Reina Del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
“We could not be prouder of our entire cast and crew that joined us on this magnificent journey,” said Executive Producers Dailyn Rodriguez, Ben Lobato and David Friendly in a statement as part of the announcement. “Queen of the South began shooting in Mexico City, brought us to faraway places like Malta and Colombia and finally landed in New Orleans. We cannot wait to share the explosive final season with our devoted fans. And, of course, we could not have made this show without the talented and tireless Alice Braga, who brought our queen to life.”
A new season is due in the US in April. It airs in Australia on FOX Showcase.
