New Season of Saints & Sinners Debuts April 11
ATLANTA (Feb. 8, 2021) – Bounce, the first and only broadcast and multi-platform entertainment network serving African Americans, has set the dates for the return of its top-rated and enormously-popular original drama Saints & Sinners.
Bounce will world premiere Saints & Sinners: Judgment Day – the first-ever Saints & Sinners movie – on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The movie serves as a bridge to the fifth season of the series, which will premiere on Sunday, April 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Saints & Sinners: Judgment Day sees vengeance running rampant and family loyalty ceasing to exist in the small town of Cypress when Mayor Ella Johnson (Vanessa Bell Calloway) is arrested for killing Malik Thompson (Karon Joseph Riley) whose body is found at the bottom of her empty pool. Simultaneously, Ella’s mother Leona (Donna Biscoe) steps in to claim what she believes is rightfully hers — the key to the city — and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Robin Givens guest stars.
Saints & Sinners: Judgment Day will be available for viewing on Monday, February 15 on Brown Sugar, Bounce’s popular streaming service, with the complete first four seasons of the series available anytime. Bounce will air a binge-viewing marathon of seasons one-four starting Thursday, April 8 leading up to the season five premiere.
Set against the backdrop of a large southern church, Saints & Sinners centers around the pursuit of power, intertwined with greed, deception, corruption, compromising sexual affairs, and murder. In addition to Calloway and Biscoe, the series stars Clifton Powell, Tray Chaney, Keith Robinson, J.D. Williams, Jasmine Burke, Dawn Halfkenny, and Karon Joseph Riley. The additions to the cast for season five include Gregory Alan Williams (Greenleaf, Chicago Med).
