‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ star Alyssa Edwards lands Netflix show

BTW

Tongue-popping, lip-puckering, dance extraordinaire from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Alyssa Edwards, is getting her own documentary series on Netflix.

The show, titled Dancing Queen, will be produced by RuPaul Charles and other executive producers from Drag Race founding company World of Wonder Productions, Entertainment Weekly reports. The show will center around the man behind the Edwards persona, Justin Johnson, and his Beyond Belief Dance Company in Mesquite, Texas.

The trailer for Dancing Queen dropped on Twitter Wednesday morning and promised “all tears, all shade,” to many fans’ excitement. 

A spinoff show starring the Edwards was announced nearly five years ago, but due to some rigga morris, it was stuck in development hell. Fans can catch a 10-minute reel from the show on the World of Wonder YouTube channel.

Dancing Queen, comprised of eight 45-minute episodes, will premiere on Netflix on Oct. 5.
