Queen of the South has been on USA Network for the past five years, following the story of Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga). Over the past four series, Teresa has gone from money changer, drug mule and then the head of her own cartel. But the end is now in sight as Queen of the South has been cancelled by the network. 

The story of Teresa is based on the Spanish book La Reina del Sur written by author Arturo Pérez-Reverte. 

But before Queen of the South even existed, a Spanish telenovela named after the book began starring Kate del Castillo in the role of Teresa. 

A few years on though and USA Network decided to make their own adaptation of the book, starring Braga, Peter Gadiot as James Valdez, Hemky Madera as Pote Galvez and various other cast members who featured in one or more of the series. 

Fans had been looking forward to the drama’s return since series four dropped on Netflix last year, however, it has now been announced that Queen of the South season five will be its last.
