OWN has renewed its drama series Greenleaf for a fourth season, the network said Wednesday.
The renewal of the series -- which follows the exploits of a family-run megachurch -- comes as the series posted its biggest audience for season three, garnering 2.3 million viewers for its Sept. 12 episode based on Nielsen Live +3 ratings, according to OWN.
The series stars Merle Dandridge, Lynn Whitfield and Keith David. Executive producers for the series include Craig Wright, Clement Virgo, Kriss Turner Tower and Oprah Winfrey.
“Greenleaf is a cornerstone of our scripted programming slate and pulls in millions of viewers each week with its unique storylines and powerful characters,” said Erik Logan, OWN president in a statement. “We are very proud of this show, the incredible cast, producers and crew, and can’t wait for more twists and turns from the Greenleaf family in season four.”
