Alyssa Edwards in Netflix’s Dancing Queen
Get ready to tongue-pop because Alyssa Edwards is getting a Netflix show.
The season 5 star with all the secrets is headlining her own TV show, Dancing Queen.
Netflix describes it as a ‘hilarious and heartfelt docu-series set in the dancing, prancing world of the multi-talented, multi-layered Justin Johnson’.
The eight-episode series will see Alyssa juggle ‘dance life, drag life, family life, and love life’.
‘Filmed in Justin’s hometown of Mesquite, Texas, Dancing Queen goes behind the makeup and into the drag performer’s highly competitive Beyond Belief Dance Company as he prepares a young class for an intensely competitive season,’ Netflix adds.
The series will launch globally on 5 October.
The queen you know. The stories you don’t.

Dancing Queen is produced by World of Wonder, who also make RuPaul’s Drag Race.
A pilot for a ‘drag’ version of Dance Moms was created two years ago.
Plans for the show were shelved after the death of Alyssa’s mom.
A recent gig included Alyssa officiating a wedding for a gay couple. The theme was space cowboy.

‘So my friends Robbie and Neil got married last night at a dude ranch in north Texas and Alyssa officiated it!’ one guest said.
‘I wasn’t allowed to take too many photos because they were filming for Alyssa’s new show but it was honestly an extravagant evening.
Other RuPaul shows
This is not the only new show RuPaul has in the works.
RuPaul is making a daytime talk show scheduled for fall 2019.
He will also star, write and executive a Netflix comedy series, titled AJ and the Queen.
Hulu is also developing a series based on RuPaul’s early New York City life. JJ Abrams is serving as executive producer.
The project is tentatively titled Queen.
Likely a half-hour drama-comedy, Queen will take a fictional look at RuPaul’s rise from gender-fucking club kid to gay icon and drag superstar.
