SASHAY AWAY! NETFLIX CANCELS AJ AND THE QUEEN

Advertisements

Less than two months after it’s premiere, Netflix has opted to cancel AJ and the Queen after one season.

The scripted 10-episode series, co-created by Michael Patrick King and RuPaul stars the Supermodel of the World as drag queen Ruby Red who travels cross country in an RV with an 11-year-old runaway after having her money stolen by her love interest.

Ru took to Twitter to announce the cancellation: 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

I will admit with so many shows currently on Netflix that I am trying to catch up on, I still haven’t gotten around to watching AJ and the Queen. I am aware that critics hated the show, and friends of mine who have watched it feel the show is watered down so that rust belt breeders can tolerate drag culture.

I am also aware that season 1 ends on a cliffhanger, so I wonder if Netflix will grant the fans some closure in the form of a two hour movie like they did with Sense8? I will eventually get around to watching it, but I’m currently obsessed with Toy Boy, a Spanish show about male strippers who solve crimes. Welp, at east Mama Ru has Drag Race and it’s 5,000 spin-offs to fall back on financially.
