Drag Race royalty Alyssa Edwards will be back on our screens sooner than expected. While it’s unlikely that the All Stars alum will be competing on the show that made her famous again anytime soon, the Texas drag star is coming to Netflix.
Today (Aug. 22), the company announced that Edwards will be starring in Dancing Queen, a docu-series following the star as she juggles her drag career, family life, romance and more. The series is was filmed in the star’s hometown of Mesquite, TX and will also give a peak into the drag performer’s Beyond Belief Dance Company, where she prepares a young class of dancers for an intense, competitive season.
Edwards, who is known as Justin Johnson out of drag, serves as producer of the World of Wonder production, with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Roy Orecchio and RuPaul Charles all listed as executive producers. The first season will see eight 45-minute episodes launching globally on Netflix on Oct. 5.

The queen you know. The stories you don’t.
