Oprah will be making a return to the small screen soon.

Unfortunately, this news doesn’t mean the reinstatement of her popular and groundbreaking talk show, but rather, a return to television acting.

Her new series, Greenleaf, will be aired on OWN starting in June, though audiences will get a first look at the series this week at the New York Tribeca Film Festival.

In addition to starring Mama O, the series will also star Lynn Whitfield and Keith David. Centered around the Greenleaf family, the series will explore the life of the family who heads a mega-church in Memphis.

“Like so many mega-churches in America, Greenleaf World Ministries is more than just a house of worship,” OWN said in a press release regarding the series. “It’s a home. But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity.”

The 13 part series premieres Wednesday, June 22 at 10 pm on OWN.

In the meantime, check out the trailer below. Will you be watching?
