ABC Cancels ‘Queens’ After One Season

Posted May 7, 2022

The ‘Queens‘ of ABC’s spicy music drama series will not be returning for a second season.

The freshman series which starred Brandy, Eve, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez was officially canceled by the network after just one season despite being a high priority for the network for its pilot season.

The series…was one of the hottest pilots last season and carried a lot of expectations heading into the fall. It had an OK premiere in October, earning 0.4 demo rating and 1.78 million viewers in Live+Same Day. But throughout the season, Queens, which aired Tuesdays the 10 p.m., was often bested by competing programming. Possibly factoring into the show’s ratings performance was the fact that, during its run, Queens had to overcome the departure of one of its stars, Eve, who took a break from the series upon announcing her pregnancy.


The series which was created by Zahir McGhee centered around four estranged women in their 40s who once were a wildly popular 90s girl Hip Hop group. The group comes together after years apart to reunite for a chance to recapture their fame as they record new music, perform and bring their swag to old fans and a new generation.

The cancellation comes almost three months after the Season 1 finale which aired in February and left fans with a cliffhanger ending.

RIP Queens.
