Following the fourth season, the Greenleafs come together to stand against the threat of losing cavalry to Bon Whitmore and Harmony & Hope Ministries. But, their secrets and their past come back to haunt the family once again. Season five will be the final season and will have a total of eight episodes. Besides, the fifth season will test the family’s relationship; at the same time, they will do everything to stay on top of their game.

The official from the Chicago Crusader states that:

“In Season Five, The Greenleafs attempt to maintain a united front in the face of losing their church to Bob Whitmore and Harmony and Hope Ministries, but secrets past and present create what could be fatal fractures in the family’s fragile foundation.”

When does it come to Netflix?

The series has wrapped its fifth installment on the Oprah Winfrey Network. For Netflix  International subscribers, Greenleaf Season 5 has just dropped last week. Although there is no word for season 6, fans are hoping that they won’t have to say goodbye to the series, just yet.

However, the creators offer one last treat to the viewers. The Greenleaf season 5 gives us a freebie, a one-hour special entitled, Greenleaf: Goin Up Yonder aired last June. However, the streaming giant remains tight-lipped on whether the one-hour special show will also drop on Netflix.

Fans will be happy to know that the series will not drop weekly, but all episodes will automatically be added on the streaming platform.

When will it be on Netflix USA?

Unfortunately for the Netflix US subscribers, the fifth installment will not arrive until September 10, 2020. It appears that Netflix US is the final region that will air Greenleaf.
