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
Not sure if you are aware, but in the regular world that's illegal so of course there isn't any in the show. And only strange people with questionable life choices would think that a story about a 10 year old child riding cross country with a drag queen, who is a person they never met and don't know, in an RV is a good premise for a show.
I mean, what else is there when you're driving an RV cross country as a drag queen?
The lesson learned here is touch more people.
Not sad and happy Netflix cancelled the series.
