Via TheYBF:

It’s a lot of good things happening at the OWN Network. “Queen Sugar” has been renewed for season 3. Also, Ava DuVernay and Will Packer have inked first-look deals with Oprah’s Harpo Films and the OWN network. Deets inside…

“Queen Sugar” fans rejoice! We’re getting more of Kofi’s sexiness and more family drama.  *praise him*

The OWN Network has given Ava DuVernay’s hit series the greenlight for a third season and we can’t be happier. It’s one of our TV obsessions and we can’t get enough. Season 2 already has our emotions all over the place. And seeing hottie Kofi Siriboe every week makes it all worth it.

More good news for Ava.

The Oscar nominated directress has inked a new first-look TV deal with Oprah’s Harpo Films for television and digital media. Ava’s recently announced limited series “Central Park Five” is the first project under Ava’s new deal. By the way, Lady O is starring in Ava’s upcoming Disney movie, A Wrinkle In Time.

“I’m so proud of Ava and her ability as a filmmaker to challenge the status quo and push for inclusiveness on screen and behind the camera,” said Oprah. “I love, love, love the work we have been able to create so far. I am looking forward to developing many more meaningful projects together.”

We’re looking forward to them as well. Congrats Ava!
