As we all know, the television industry is a cutthroat business. Show cancellations are not uncommon, and even successful runs can come to a sudden end due to various factors such as low viewership ratings or conflicts with network executives. One of these shows that met an untimely demise was “Dancing Queen,” which premiered in 2018 on Netflix and followed drag queen Alyssa Edwards’ life as a dance instructor.
The first season of “Dancing Queen” received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. Many praised Alyssa’s charismatic personality, the show’s humorous tone, and its exploration of LGBTQ+ themes through an unconventional lens. The series also gained traction on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram for its insightful commentary on self-expression within marginalized communities.
Given the success of the first installment, fans eagerly anticipated the release of season two. However, it soon became apparent that their hopes were in vain when Netflix announced via Twitter in February 2019 that “Dancing Queen” would not be renewed for another round.
So what happened to season two? Unfortunately, there’s no definitive answer – like many TV cancellations before it (and after), there were likely several contributing factors involved in this particular case.
One potential explanation is linked to viewing numbers. While there’s no hard data available due to Netflix not sharing their streaming statistics with third-party entities or customers themselves however some sources have indicated that although critical acclaim was high for Dancing Queen’s debut run; viewership may have been somewhat lower than desired by decision-makers at Netflix headquarters thus leading them to decide against renewal despite strong fan reactions &online chatter around program
Another possible reason is related to scheduling conflicts between Alyssa Edwards aka Justin Johnson (the star/hostess) & production schedule/travel itinerary while filming volume one where she essentially lived bicoastal life – spending time at home base Texas but then traveling back out California completing tapings/rehearsals in-between trips back and forth from personal life commitments which might not have been seen as sustainable over an extended period thus persuading creators to go with other shows instead of Dance Queen.
It is also worth noting the significance of Alyssa Edwards’ drag persona within the show’s narrative – her interactions, relationships, battles/victories were highlights season 1 & wove a crucial storyline that sat alongside dance-mum challenges– but what if they couldn’t juggle it all again?!?
All these factors could have contributed to “Dancing Queen” being axed by Netflix. Considering everything, it seems likely that multiple factors played into Netflix’s decision to cancel Dancing Queen—such as ratings data or production logistics potential complications—with no single cause driving this choice alone
In conclusion while Netflix has yet to offer an official explanation regarding why they canceled the show parties such as cast members, fans on social media platforms etc remain hopeful for its revival one day soon – and given the popularity of Drag Race alumns like Alyssa Edwards’ captivating presence both on screen &social media channels; there’s no reason why we can’t keep our fingers crossed! After all “Well…whoop whoop!”
The television industry is notorious for being a cutthroat business where show cancellations are common. Even successful runs can come to an abrupt end due to various factors such as low viewership numbers or conflicts with network executives. One of these shows that fell victim to the harsh realities of the industry was “Dancing Queen.”
“Dancing Queen” premiered on Netflix in 2018 and followed drag queen Alyssa Edwards’ life as a dance instructor.

There are several potential explanations for why Netflix chose not to renew “Dancing Queen.” Firstly, there could have been lower than desired viewership numbers despite critical acclaim – however this cannot be verified due to Netflix’s reluctance to share streaming data with customers or third-party organizations.
Another possible factor could be scheduling conflicts between Alyssa Edwards (aka Justin Johnson) and production schedules during filming volume one; which entailed living bi-coastal – spending time at home base Texas but also traveling back out California completing rehearsals/wrapups/tapings/changes etc all within short spans though issues may arise if commitments become unmanageable over long periods
Furthermore given how crucial her drag persona was woven into narrative during first mid-game high points interactions fights successes challenges could’ve made it difficult creators continue story line without impacting characters development/dynamics etc though speculation on actual impact remains up in air
Ultimately it is likely multiple factors led Netflix’s decision not renew Dancing Queen–such as ratings data or logistical complications—with multiple moving pieces contributing towards cancelation rather than solely one reason found to motivate this decision
Despite the lack of an official explanation from Netflix, cast members and fans remain optimistic that “Dancing Queen” may yet be revived. Given Alyssa Edwards’ popularity both on-screen and on social media channels as well other Drag Race alumns; there’s no reason not to hold out hope. “Well…whoop whoop!”
