What is AJ and the Queen?

The latest RuPaul series to come out is AJ and the Queen, which is exclusively on Netflix.

Sharing the history of drag, the storyline follows a drag queen, Ruby Red, who saves a kid along the way. However, it a heartfelt twist, the kid also saves the Drag Queen as their outlooks on life alter.

Although the show sounds cheesy, it’s a real feel-good season and features plenty of drag cameos throughout.

Will there be a season 2?

No! AJ and the Queen has been cancelled after just one season.

Given the popularity of the first season and the fact they left the series with many cliffhangers, some thought it likely that AJ and the Queen would return for a second season.

RuPaul tweeted on March 6th, 2020: “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.”

We’re sure this will come as disappointing news to both AJ and the Queen fans and RuPaul fans everywhere.
