No Season 2 for the drag queen dramedy.
March 6, 2020
There will be no more adventures for AJ and the Queen, as Netflix has cancelled the dramedy after just one season. Co-creator and star RuPaul Charles took to Twitter to announce the sad news, which comes less than two months after the show's freshman release on the streaming service.
The hour-long series followed drag queen Ruby Red, played by RuPaul, who sets out on the road looking for a change of scenery and new adventures. While traveling across the country in her run-down RV, she comes across a stowaway in the form of a street-smart, tough-talking 10-year-old who ends up becoming her unlikely sidekick. As the two misfits travel from one city to another, Ruby's message of acceptance touches people and changes their lives for the better.
End of the road for “AJ and The Queen” @Netflix has decided to not extend our road trip across America. Thank you for all the love & support. We're so very proud of the work. @mizzizzyg @mlwooley @tiacarrere @joshsegarra @katerinavictoria @mwilkas #AJandTheQueen pic.twitter.com/0W50sTW4kU— RuPaul (@RuPaul) March 6, 2020
Do this... Repeat what you commented loudly in public "I liked the show and found the show relatable because of the struggle in every day life and I'm not gay. Really sad people are not more evolved to just enjoy a show without reading anything into it" and add the sentence "That just happens to have a man that travels around with a 10 year old boy, in an RV, he doesn't know and he happens to be a drag queen" And see how evolved you really are.
Lot of you talking big in comments but know full well no matter what you comment that it doesn't make sense. So just stop trying to convince people that your normal when you're not.
Stop being so gay. I see people as people. And you're just an ass. I have no problem with anyone's orientation or preference. A horrible show is a horrible show. I've said before and will continue to say again, that a premise of an underage 10 year old boy riding in a van is the worst idea for a TV show probably ever, but more recently in today's climate. You and others like you can continue the "woe is me" attitude, but in reality if you are pushing for a show like this you are suspect and your computer hard drives should be checked.
The truth is that this show, like many LGBTQ projects has more of a message than an authentic, compelling story. Tyler Perry does the same thing in his dreadful projects for the African American audience. This deserved to be canceled. Ideas should be compelling and organic, rather than contrived. It's like putting peanut butter over a pill to feed a dog. It seldom goes well. Tell a good story, whatever it is, and go from there. The needs of the story dictate where it goes, not done ploy to educate.
