The Great American Southern drama is all set to continue as Bounce TV has renewed the Saints & Sinners TV show for a fifth season. In addition, the cable channel has also ordered a standalone movie as part of the franchise.
Saints & Sinners has received mixed reviews from critics over the years, but it is a breakthrough series for Bounce TV, and their most-watched program ever since it launched in 2016.
With a large southern church serving as the backdrop, Saints & Sinners has it all – the pursuit of power, fueled by greed, deception, corruption, opportunistic promiscuity, and even murder.
The dramatic series stars Vanessa Bell Calloway, Clifton Powell, Tray Chaney, Keith Robinson, J.D. Williams, Donna Biscoe, Jasmine Burke, Dawn Halfkenny, and Karon Joseph Riley.
The series serves as the first original drama commissioned by the African American-oriented digital television network, Bounce, whose previous originals were sitcoms.
Announcing the renewal for a fifth season of Saints & Sinners, Bounce also stated that it would air only around Spring 2021. All previous seasons have had eight episodes each and season four finished last year in August.
The standalone film is expected to also be titled the same. We just hope there is no confusion with the 2010 action drama Sinners and Saints, due to their similar names!
Plot for Season 5
In season five, viewers will find Mayor Ella Johnson (Calloway) bracing for the ride of her life when a senior church official comes to town seeking revenge for his son’s murder. A long-kept secret will be revealed that threatens to take down the entire town.
Before season five begins, the cable channel plans to air a standalone movie. It will be released in the first quarter of 2021. No further details have been announced yet.
