OWN’s original drama ‘Greenleaf’, created by award-winning writer/producer Craig Wright (‘Lost’, ‘Six Feet Under’, ‘Brothers and Sisters’) lends an unfiltered look into the corrupt empire, owned by the Greenleaf clan. The family owns the sprawling Memphis megachurch, which is a breeding ground for scandalous secrets and lies. Packed with greed, adultery, sibling rivalry, and conflicting values, the story follows the story of this fam, which faces the threat of being torn apart. The only thing that binds them together is faith. The provocative family soap, which has drawn comparisons to primetime shows like ‘Revenge’ and ‘Empire’, has spanned four incredibly successful seasons to date. The award-winning drama was then renewed for a fifth outing and here’s everything you need to know about it.
Greenleaf Season 5 Release Date
‘Greenleaf’ season 5 will premiere on June 23, 2020 at 9 pm ET on OWN. It will consist of eight new episodes.

Greenleaf Season 5 Plot: What Can it be About?
Season 5 will take off right after the events of the season 4 finale. The Greenleafs will come together to take back their church from Bob Whitmore and Harmony and Hope Ministries. However, secrets from the past and present “create what could be fatal fractures in the family’s fragile foundation. The Bishop continues working to improve his rift with Lady Mae while, day by day, Harmony and Hope’s grip on Calvary tightens” — as outlined by OWN.
Since season 5 is the last outing from the series, we can definitely expect a lot of intense drama and emotions. Time to finally say farewell to your favorite family!
