Saints & Sinners Season 6 - What We Know So Far

In 2015, Bounce TV announced that "Saints and Sinners" would become the network's first drama (via Broadcasting+Cable). Set in the mold of "Empire," the soapy mystery debuted in 2016 and featured classic melodramatic elements set against the backdrop of a Baptist church in Georgia (via the Los Angeles Times). It became Bounce TV's breakout show, with the second episode attracting 1.5 million viewers. A press release from Bounce TV quickly declared it a "smash hit." It has remained a solid offering over the years, sometimes even beating the major networks in specific key demographics, according to The FutonCritic.

The show now has five seasons of eight episodes each under its belt. It aired seasons in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and then 2021 — skipping 2020 probably because of the COVID-19 epidemic, but it inserted an early 2021 special called "Judgment Day." That means, assuming the show is renewed, fans should get ready for Season 6 sometime next year. Here's what we know about more "Saints and Sinners" coming soon.

When is the release date of Saints and Sinners season 6?

"Saints and Sinners" hasn't yet been renewed for Season 6, but many industry watchers expect that to happen. Bounce TV doesn't currently have a vast stable of scripted shows, and the soap opera still seems to be going strong. A press release from the network in late 2019 indicated that the show has been increasing its viewership in later seasons, with its fourth netting 7.1 million viewers. If it kept that trend going past the pandemic, Bounce TV would be wise to leverage that momentum.

The fact that it hasn't yet been renewed yet shouldn't worry fans too much. "Saints and Sinners" wasn't greenlit for its fourth season until January of 2019, and it started airing that July, though Season 3 had ended the previous May. Season 5's renewal wasn't announced until August 2020, almost a year after Season 4 ended. Given that past seasons have aired mid-year between April and August (per IMDb), production for the next season will likely start before any announcement is made. Barring delays, Season 6 could come in the spring or summer of 2022.

Who is in the cast of Saints and Sinners season 6?

Because Season 6 hasn't been announced yet, there's no solid information on which cast members will or won't be back. Like most soaps, the drama series has a large cast, and comings and goings are common — it's not unusual for multiple actors to play a single role over time. According to IMDb, Season 5's cast included Vanessa Bell Calloway as Ella, J.D. Williams as Jabari, Dawn Halfkenny as Angela, Clifton Powell as Rex, Tami Roman as Felicia, Jasmine Burke as Christie, Gregory Alan Winters as Victor, Patrice Fisher as Stacia, Karlie Redd as Paige, Keith Robinson as Miles, Christian Keyes as Levi, Demetria McKinney as Tamara, Karon Riley as Malik, Donna Biscoe as Lady Leona, and Tray Chaney as Kendrick.

Ty Scott created the series, and its executive producers include Scott, Ri-Karlo Handy, and Elizabeth Kealoha. Its showrunner is Nigel Campbell, who also serves as an executive producer.

What is the plot of Saints and Sinners season 6?

Oh, the drama! "Saints and Sinners" ended its fifth season with a bang — literally. Among the finale's revelations, Victor gets shot during a standoff with Ella and her children, Leona is outed as the head of the organ trafficking ring, Felicia leaves town, and Tamara takes over as CEO Upsurge while also setting up camp in Levi's office. And that's not even all of it. At the end of the episode, Angela is carjacked and has a still-to-be-unveiled relationship with Uncle Ray Ray. At the same time, Ella, ousted from her powerful position much like Levi, pulls up and has a proposition for him.

These scenes clearly planted the seeds for deceit, manipulation, greed, corporate politics, and many secrets in the sixth season. Hopefully, the development of Leona's character won't disappoint, as the series spent a lot of the fifth season showing her softer side before revealing her role as a criminal mastermind. Viewers will also be interested in what Ella and Levi are up to and how that will shake up events in the town of Cypress in the upcoming season. Hopefully, 2022 will bring back this guilty pleasure in short order because we need those questions answered, pronto!
