The fifth and final season of Queen of the South finally gave Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) and James Valdez (Peter Gadiot) the happy ending they always wanted. Although most viewers were more than satisfied with the USA Network drama’s series finale, a new online petition has called for more.
Fans have launched an official petition calling for a spin-off series centered on one of Queen of the South’s main antagonists, Devon Finch (Jamie Hector).
At the end of the last season, Finch worked in conjunction with the CIA to try and track down Teresa and bring an end to the Mendoza cartel.
Thankfully, James hatched a plan to deceive the Texas drug buyer by faking Teresa’s death and starting a new life away from their life of crime.
Although the series has officially come to an end, some viewers aren’t ready to see the show come to an end.

In place of a potential sixth season, which is no longer on the cards, fans have now begun petitioning for a prequel series bringing back Jamie Hector to his iconic role.
Queen of the South fan Richard Angelo recently posted the petition on Reddit after starting it on Sunday.
The description reads: “The show Queen of the South was an amazing series, but undoubtedly the most intriguing character is Devon Finch.
“It is constantly mentioned that his rising in the organized crime world was legendary and that of myths.”
Showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez and other execs for Queen of the South have so far remained silent on the chances of a sequel or prequel series arriving any time soon.
However, the head writer’s post-finale interview with Deadline confirmed they did have plans on where they wanted to take Finch after the fifth season.
Rodriguez explained: “One of the reasons we did choose not to kill Devon Finch was the possibility of a season six, and leaving that doubt a little bit out there.
“We did toy with the idea of keeping that open, but once we finally got the word that we were not getting a season six, we decided to just let sleeping dogs lie when it came to Devon Finch.”
Even so, some fans weren’t so receptive to the idea, and would prefer a theoretical offshoot to focus on different characters.
On Reddit, one fan commented: “Ummm no, I’d rather watch a prequel about El Santo, much more interesting and mysterious.”
“Are you f*****g kidding me. I hate Devon so much,” exclaimed another. “How about a spin off about King George?”
Meanwhile, another fan maintained the spin-off wouldn’t work if at least James Valdez and possibly a number of other characters from the original series were thrown into the mix.
It seems most fans were content with the ending they were given, but there could still be an opportunity to return to the world of Queen of the South somewhere down the line.
Queen of the South seasons 1-4 are available to stream on Netflix.
