'AJ And The Queen' Starring RuPaul Canceled At Netflix

Comedy series AJ and The Queen has been canceled after one season at Netflix.

RuPaul made the announcement Friday morning on Twitter.

The drag icon starred in the series as Robert Lee aka Ruby Red, a bigger than life but down on her luck drag queen who travels across America from club to club in a rundown 1990’s van, in order to recoup the savings recently stolen from her. She’s paired up with AJ, a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old stowaway. As these two misfits, one tall – one small, travel from city to city, Ruby’s message of love and acceptance winds up touching people and changes their lives a little for the better.”

The show also guest-starred prominent drag queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race, including Monique Heart, Latrice Royale and Kennedy Davenport.

Created by RuPaul Charles and Michael Patrick King, the series was produced by MPK Productions with Warner Bros. Television.
