The series starred Brandy, Naturi Naughton, Eve and Nadine Velazquez. Created by Zahir McGhee and directed by Tim Story, four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s — Naomi (Brandy), Jill (Naughton), Brianna (Eve) and Valeria (Velazquez) — reunited for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

According to Deadline, poor ratings was the reason for its cancelation. The outlet reports that

Possibly factoring into the show’s ratings performance was the fact that, during its run, Queens had to overcome the departure of one of its stars, Eve, who took a break from the series upon announcing her pregnancy.

Prior to its ending, Brandy told the outlet:

I know I would love to see more performances, more rapping, and more stage stuff if there is a Season 2. We didn’t really get a chance to do a lot of the stage performances that I wanted to do this year. I hope we get to tell more great stories and have a lot more entertainment in terms of the group. Fingers crossed.

Are you sad that the show came to an end? Let us know in the comments.
