Back in May 2018 we announced that drag queen RuPaul, famous for “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, is heading back to Netflix in a new comedy series “AJ and The Queen”. While it has been a long time coming, it looks as though we now have a release date of January 10th, 2020. The tweet, however, has since been deleted [update: the tweet has returned] but we took a screenshot for you anyway. The 10 x 1 hour episodes are written by Michael Patrick King & RuPaul Charles and you can see the teaser trailer below:
RuPaul stars as 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 R/V with her unlikely sidekick 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 changing their lives for the better. Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.
