WATCH: Oprah’s Megachurch Drama, “Greenleaf,” Returns to OWN for Season 3 in August

Season 3 of Oprah’s hit megachurch drama, “Greenleaf,” is set to debut later this year in August. The OWN network showed a brief trailer during Tuesday night’s season 5 premiere of Tyler Perry’s The Have and Have Nots, teasing just enough conflict to whet your appetite for the next chapter in the Greenleaf family’s saga following season 2’s cliffhanger. Increasing the anticipation for season 3, the network announced in February that legendary diva Patti LaBelle will be joining the show in a recurring role. According to Deadline, “LaBelle will play Maxine Patterson, a famous Christian motivational speaker and the CEO of a global Christian self-help empire. An old friend of Mae’s from college days, Maxine will be Lady Mae’s sounding board and greatest ally as Mae attempts to consolidate her power at Calvary.”
