The network revealed the development news with a spin-off teaser spot.
From the inception of “Greenleaf,” Wright and executive producer Oprah Winfrey envisioned that the story told by the Lionsgate and Harpo Films produced series would span five seasons, with Wright contemplating a spin-off. Fans of the show helped accelerate plans for the spinoff after expressing their support when the final season was announced, reaffirming its passionate fan base.
