“It’s an honor to work for Ms. Winfrey and OWN and to serve the network’s devoted fans,” Greenleaf creator and executive producer Craig Wright says of his new series. “Delilah continues the work we started on Greenleaf, namely, bringing untold stories and fresh perspectives to our audience.”

In addition to Delilah, Wright is also working on a spinoff to Greenleaf, which ended its fifth and final season on August 11; details are under wraps as of now.

“On the heels of the incredible success story of ‘Greenleaf,’ we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Craig on this compelling new drama,” OWN president Tina Perry said in a statement. “Our viewers are going to deeply relate to this story that focuses on a powerful woman committed to her family and her community.”
