 “La Reina del Sur reigns supreme as the cornerstone of our Super Series™ franchises, and this epic saga continues filled with action, suspense and adventure, revealing Teresa Mendoza’s new purpose and putting her abilities, grit and cunning to the test,” said Karen Barroeta, EVP, Production & Development, Telemundo Global Studios. “Kate del Castillo remains a big part of why the series continues to broaden its appeal among and beyond our Spanish-speaking viewers. Combined with her star power and an exciting narrative, we are certain this third season of La Reina will be a game-changer that will continue to grow her fandom and influence Spanish-language media for years to come.”

Season 3 opens four years after the enthralling events of the season 2 cliffhanger when Teresa — who is living an idyllic life on a beachside hideout with her daughter– sees military forces coming after her. Teresa Mendoza is now behind bars in the U.S. for the murders of three DEA agents. Stripped of her freedom, she’s separated again from her beloved daughter, Sofia. Once freed during a dramatic jailbreak, Teresa engages in a covert network alliance, risking her life throughout Latin America as they gather for a final assault, striking out against the DEA in a way no one ever dared to imagine.
