‘Queens’ Canceled After One Season

Published: Friday 6th May 2022 by Sam

The ‘Queens’ will no longer take their thrones.

Because ABC has canceled the music drama after just one season.

Full story below…

Anchored by Brandy, Eve, Naturi Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez, the show followed a group of friends who had a shot at reclaiming their glory years.

In the 90s, they performed together as part of the female rap group – the Nasty Girls. Fast forward to the present and their lives were vastly different. ‘Queens’ chronicled their journey towards a comeback.

A standout during pilot season, the series received a full order and was reportedly considered a priority for ABC. Especially with the available audience that had yet to receive a similar music-centric show following the end of ‘Empire’ over at Fox in 2020.

Despite finding a decent audience, the show was unable to reign over the ratings in the coveted primetime spot – a reality that unquestionably led to the network pulling the plug.

  3. Credits May 6, 2022

    It wasn’t a bad show. It was good for what is was.

  4. You think May 6, 2022

    The show was horrible and very predictable let’s be honest. Although I do feel like it could’ve done better on a premium cable channel like starz or showtime where they could actually go deeper with the subject matter ABC kept it too PG for this kind of show. Also Nasty B******, Professor S**, Butterpeacan!? Come on y’all could’ve done much better with the names

    It wasn’t a bad show, it was the network.. If it was BET+ or VH1 it would of been renewed for sure but little ole white power ABC?? Chile they not bout to waste money on that ish

    • Shia May 7, 2022

      White Power ABC ? What are you talking about – their coverage on cases like Ahmad Arbery and George Floyd has been nothing short of BLM support intensive.

    • J May 7, 2022

      ABC is quick to cancel any show. Somebody is just IGNORANT and I’ve stopped using JAY TGJ 💋

      They put. A LOT of money into the show, it just wasn’t good. Queens had a huge budget from the looks of it.

  8. Just sayin May 7, 2022

    Everything Naturi Naughton touches is a flop. Her acting is overrated. Her role in the Notorious movie was so bad.

    Embarrassing😂🤣😂 we all knew they ain’t Queens but a bunch of ashy peasants💅🏾

  10. Tori May 7, 2022

    I said this would flop while it was in production❗️I don’t know who’s approving the shows that get pitched but this was off brand with ABC.

  11. Monica Stan May 7, 2022

    Of course everything Brandy touches DIES or FLOPS 💀💀💀

    • Pamela K. James May 7, 2022

      As if Flopnica is the pinnacle of success. Do us all a favor and kill yourself.

    They set the show up for failure from the hump. For one it was cheesy and secondly the timeslot was a prime time graveyard. Queens should have been on streaming a La Prime or HBO Max and been more gritty. That’s the only way it would work. Shows like Abbott Elementary and The Wonder Years had excellent ratings and were renewed for second seasons. Best of luck to the ladies. They’re all talented and deserved better.

  13. Gina May 7, 2022

    Thats ridiculous. This show was great.

  14. Roberta FlackSabbath May 7, 2022

    Brandy hit it with her car and killed it.

    • What May 7, 2022

      I liked the show I’m so very upset but what can you expect when it is on abc channel they new it wasn’t going to work

  15. IJS May 7, 2022

    The concept wasn’t interesting. TV musicals are not it. And in comparison to all of the other content that’s out, this show was guaranteed to fail. We need original stories with intelligent writing and riveting plots.

    • Ijs May 8, 2022

      Get your own name b****!!!!!

  16. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎 May 8, 2022

    It was a ghetto mess, but it did bring to light how black people act.

  17. Latisha Pinkney Dunlap May 8, 2022

    I love the show they need to bring it back that’s mess up so quick
