Genre: Drama Mystery
Duration: 5 seasons
We were left on a cliffhanger at the end of 2019 and we were not sure which way Charity was going to go in regards to Phil’s question. Would Lady Mae consider the offer to achieve her dream and will Mae and James’ sort out their differences. The final season of Greenleaf has finally appeared on Netflix and it is one you don’t want to miss.
The Greenleaf family are full of controversy and we have been following their lives for the past four seasons. We were introduced to Bishop James Greenleaf and his wife Lady Mae whose once-estranged daughter Grace returns home following the death of her sister Faith. Although her father is happy to see her, but the rest of the family are not so much. She has bought her daughter along with her and after finding out some information about her sister’s death she decides to stay to try and investigate further.
As time goes on, we learn that Grace’s other sister Charity is pregnant, but her husband turns out to be gay and therefore she is left to bring up her child on her own. Grace’s brother Jacob is having an affair that his wife finds out about and their daughter runs away with her no-good boyfriend.
Grace also confronts her uncle Mac who she blames for the death of her sister and in a confrontation, Mac winds up dead. On top of all of this the family face an IRS bill that could ruin them and the church.
Greenleaf is a great American TV show which shows you an American family from a different side of the spectrum. They are church goers and from the African community, yet they are very much American in all other aspects. It brings together family drama, controversy, greed, corruption and deceit. It is very fast paced, and you won’t be left with a boring moment throughout any of the seasons. It is a show that is binge worthy and once you start you will not be able to stop.
The final and concluding season has just been added to Netflix but all the past seasons are also on there, so you will not miss out if you hadn’t already watched it. What will season five bring? The official trailer has been released and shows that there will be further relationship problems as well as the issue of the church being knocked down. The drama will most definitely continue.
