The gripping thriller from the USA Network follows Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga), a young woman who builds a huge drug empire in Mexico. New episodes were recently added to Netflix, and fans of Queen of the South have been revealing some major continuity blunders in earlier episodes.
Adapted from Spanish telenovela La Reina del Sur, the successful crime drama has experienced a surge in popularity after new episodes were made available on Netflix.
Season four concluded last August on the USA network, though fans will have a longer wait ahead before the stunning cliffhangers are resolved in season five.
Following the return of James (Peter Gadiot) in episode 13, showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez confirmed production on season five was sadly interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Netflix subscribers have been binging through the first four instalments and becoming gripped by the latest cartel thriller, following in the footsteps of Breaking Bad and Narcos.

Unfortunately, some fans have been paying closer attention than others and have spotted some embarrassing editing blunders in the midst of the action.
One of the most noticeable was highlighted by an observant fan, who took issue with a sequence in which series antagonist Camila Vargas (Verónica Falcón) is being pursued by the Mexican army.
In episode 11, Diez de Copas, Camila is on the run after a shocking betrayal by her own daughter Isabela (Sandy Valles).
The fan wrote: “Camila is walking down the sidewalk in high heels in the background trying to avoid the Mexican Army. In the next frame in a closeup she is running barefoot.”
Despite the occasional production mistake, Queen of the South has kept fans guessing as each new season sends fans into a tailspin with twist after twist.
Episode 13 of season four, Vienen Por Ti, brought James back into the fold with a mysterious and fatal wound, warning his ex-girlfriend ‘they’re coming’ in the season’s final moments.
Queen of the South season five has since become a highly anticipated new release, though fans across the globe will have to prepare for a long delay ahead.
Addressing rumours of delays during the coronavirus lockdown, showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez tweeted: “Season five was interrupted due to Covid.”
