Each new episode of Queen of the South season 5 has left fans hungry for more but will there be an episode 11? How many episodes are there in total?
Season 5 of Queen of the South has been one of the show’s most enthralling and explosive seasons yet.
After the episode 9 cliffhanger, fans have been eagerly awaiting episode 10’s arrival.
But following the conclusion of episode 10, will there be an episode 11 in Queen of the South season 5? How many episodes are there in total?
*Spoilers ahead for season 5, episode 9*
Queen of the South season 5 on USA Network
Season 5 of Queen of the South premiered on USA Network on April 7th and new episodes have aired each week since.
The new season has thrown more challenges at Teresa Mendoza’s drug empire than ever before but the drug queen had managed to navigate them well enough.
That was until the ending of episode 9 which saw Teresa get shot by a sniper – something that was teased in the show’s very first episode – which left fans fearing for the character ahead of episode 10.
Is there an episode 11?
- No, there will not be an episode 11 in Queen of the South season 5.
That’s because season 5 of Queen of the South only consists of 10 episodes, meaning tonight’s episode (June 9th) will be the show’s last.
Season 5’s episode total will come as a surprise to some fans as seasons 1-4 of the USA Network series all had 13 episodes each, making season 5 the show’s shortest instalment.
Will Queen of the South return for season 6?
- No, Queen of the South will not return to USA Network for season 6.
That’s because the series is concluding at the end of season 5.
Queen of the South’s fifth season was confirmed in August 2019, on the same day as season 4’s finale.
However, in March 2021, it was announced that the upcoming fifth season would be the show’s last.
Speaking to Deadline about Queen of the South’s final season, executive producers Dailyn Rodriguez, Ben Lobato and David Friendly said: “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.”
Season 5 of Queen of the South concludes on USA Network on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021.
