RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Alyssa Edwards to star in Netflix’s Dancing Queen docuseries


RuPaul’s Drag Race favorite Alyssa Edwards is ready to tongue pop and death drop her way back into our homes. This time, the drag superstar is starring in her own Netflix docuseries, Dancing Queen.

Drag queens are taking over the world, and we don’t have any complaints about that! This time, it’s everyone’s favorite tongue poppin’, death droppin’ queen from Mesquite, Texas, Miss Alyssa Edwards. Edwards is heading to Netflix in the new docuseries Dancing Queen, set to premiere globally on the streaming service on October 5.

Dancing Queen looks like Dance Moms if Abby Lee Miller was a drag queen. It’s described as a hilarious and heartfelt docuseries shining a light on the life of Edwards (real name Justin Johnson) as he juggles his drag career with his family life and his highly competitive dance company.

The show is filmed in his hometown of Mesquite at his own dance company, Beyond Belief. Judging by the trailer (below), the show will be filled with drama, sparkle, tears, and even a wild Shangela appearance!

Like Dance MomsDancing Queen already looks like it will be the best kind of trash reality television, but this time with a better message. Yes, it’ll be great TV to watch hardcore stage moms go head to head with a fierce queen like Alyssa, but we’ll also get a chance to see Alyssa explore issues like gender and sexuality with her family and likely some of her students, which will help to educate others through this huge platform.

Dancing Queen is produced by World of Wonder Productions — known for Party Monster and, of course, RuPaul’s Drag Race — with executive producers Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Roy Orecchio, and RuPaul.
