Telemundo’s addictive and soapy Spanish telenovela La Reina del Sur has left audiences dazed by countless plot twists and turns over the years. As the network’s highest-rated telenovela, it didn’t come as a surprise when the show made a big splash upon landing on Netflix.

Even though its latest season was released this past January, La Reina del Sur remains a very popular option on Netflix and is frequently streamed worldwide, regularly popping up in the Top 10 in numerous countries. Millions of fans are curious if there will be a La Reina del Sur season 4 or if they should view the end of season 3 as the series finale.

Based on the novel of the same name by Spanish author Arturo Pérez-Reverte, the show made a tremendous splash upon its debut in 2011—seemingly justifying its colossal price tag (it cost over $10 million to make!). La Reina del Sur became notable enough to warrant an American spinoff called Queen of the South, starring Alice Braga.

Here’s everything we know about the chances of La Reina del Sur season 4 happening on Telemundo.

Is La Reina del Sur season 4 happening?

Since La Reina del Sur is not a Netflix Original, it’s not up to the streaming service to decide on the show’s fate (unless a deal is made for Netflix to take over production, like what happened with Longmire, Manifest, Lucifer, etc.). However, in this case, that seems unlikely.

Unfortunately, it might be time for fans to say goodbye to Teresa Mendoza. This past February, shortly after the third season premiered on Netflix (after originally premiering on Telemundo in October 2022), the outlet El Comercio reported that lead actress Kate del Castillo stopped by the talk show La Mesa Caliente and said she felt the third season was an excellent way to conclude the show.

Here’s her quote, courtesy of El Comercio (translated from Spanish):

"“I think the third is the last and how it should be (we must) say goodbye to Teresita, so enjoy it,” said the actress."

On the plus side, La Reina del Sur season 3 ended by concluding most of the major storylines on the show, so it doesn’t leave fans in the lurch with a massive unresolved cliffhanger.

If you’re looking for shows like La Reina del Sur, there are several other options available on Netflix, including Queen of the South, which is the American adaptation of the Telemundo series. All five seasons are available on Netflix right now. Other shows that might be of interest include Ingobernable, Narcos, Narcos: Mexico, and The Day I Met El Chapo.

Additionally, Sofia Vergara will star in an upcoming limited series Griselda about Griselda Blanco, the creator of one of the most notable cartels in history.

For now, there isn’t any new La Reina del Sur on the horizon, but stay tuned to Netflix Life for any details or updates that might come to light regarding the telenovela.
