Netflix shows canceled in 2020: AJ and the Queen

Showbiz and stowaways are always a winning story combination, but all the better to have the show be a drag queen show and the stowaway a 10-year-old kid. AJ and the Queen is a comedy-drama created by RuPaul and Michael Patrick King that follows “Ruby Red,” (RuPaul) a recently robbed drag queen who travels across America,  from club to club, in a rundown R/V. Along the way, she meets a tough-talking kid named AJ (Izzy G.) whose mom is even more down on her luck than Ruby. Reluctantly, Ruby agrees to have AJ accompany her on her trips, AJ serving as Ruby’s self-declared “bodyguard.”

The show, despite receiving kind reviews for its sweet-natured and unconventional story, AJ and the Queen was canceled three months after its release, becoming an unprecedented member on our list of good Netflix shows canceled in 2020. Though the show’s run was short, it’s messages were timely and powerful, addressing the weight of true acceptance and the expanse of love. The show’s first season also featured appearances from roughly two dozen of RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants, giving a rare center stage television platform for the drag community.

It was refreshing to see RuPaul step into a creative storytelling role and produce such a heartful show about two loveable misfits, especially with so much of RuPaul so tangibly evident in the show. We’d love to see more stories from the producer, drag queen and show host in the future, and hopefully with a longer run!
