Is it possible that we’ll see a Queen of the South season 5 renewal over at USA? At the moment it feels likely, but now feels like a great time to break down the show’s future odds further.
In starting things off here, let’s hone in on where the numbers are at the moment. So far through season 4, Queen of the South is averaging a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and over 800,000 live viewers a week. These are drops of more than 20% from season 3 and, on the surface, that may be a cause for concern. You don’t tend to want to see drops from one season to the next of more than 15%.
Yet, we also have to realize that the climate in 2019 is different from 2018, which was also different from 2017. With so many streaming options available out there, it’s so much more difficult for any show to hold on to a stable audience. There are just so many different programming venues out there and the best thing that we can all do is acknowledge that and look towards whatever the future may be.
The important thing at the moment is comparing the ratings of Queen of the South to some of the other series that are on the air and for now, it’s holding up quite nicely. It still has a devoted audience and it still has people who are checking it out live — and that’s without even going into its DVR or streaming performance. It’s also performing better than plenty of other USA series and we think that it’s more than fine to compare how Queen of the South is doing to some other stuff. You have to in order to gauge the modern-day landscape!
As for when USA could announce a Queen of the South season 5 renewal, there’s no real hurry for them to do so. We’ve still got a lot of story still to tell this season and if we were the network, we’d choose to announce the renewal whenever it makes the most sense — at least in terms of being able to promote the show.
