The story of the Bordelon family comes to an end. On Tuesday, Queen Sugar Creator Ava DuVernay announced that the upcoming seventh season will be the last of the series.

The director brought the news with him during a conversation meeting before the season 6 finale of the series. “As a storyteller, the bravest thing to do is to know when you’re done,” said DuVernay. “I had to force myself to say, ‘Do you have anything else to say that needs to be said about these characters?’ And I’m so proud of what we’ve done and I’m proud that I’m brave enough to go away. I’m excited to see where this is going, so once we start writing more, the adventure will take shape to reach the end of the journey. “

the Colin in black and white The executive producer also stated that she was “satisfied” that the series had achieved two goals – “an exercise in history and an exercise in systems and how we could both disrupt”.

“I never could have imagined that six and now seven seasons later a story about a modern black family who runs everyday life, nothing spectacular, everyday working class people mixed with people who might be known or known, so deep audience would go, ”she said. “I know this kind of collision of different kinds of blacks within a family, both by color, gender, sexuality, physical ability, all that in a family, this melting pot of the black family, it is rare. “

She added, “Taking all of this and making it contemporary is a radical act. It’s a radical act that it took so long, and it’s evidence of every single pair of hands that it touched, and me am so proud of that. “
