ABC's rap drama "Queens" showed so much promise after hip-hop stars Brandy Norwood and Eve signed on in 2021.
"Power" star Naturi Naughton completed the dream team. Then Eve announced her pregnancy and took a break from filming, though she did appear in the series finale.
Their efforts weren't rewarded. "Queens" only managed to draw 1 million viewers and a 0.2 in the all-important 18-49 age demo.
ABC announced the series was canceled last week.
"Queens" centered around four middle aged hip-hop stars struggling to recapture their fame in their 40s after reuniting '90s group the Nasty Bitches.
Twitter users reacted to the cancellation over the weekend.
One user wrote: "Bummer!! Wanted to see where it would go next!! #QueensABC..."
While another tweeted: "#QueensABC was not cancelled because it was bad, it was cancelled because the pacing of the show was break neck speed. It made it so hard to watch."
A third person wrote: "Well this is the worst news I got today. #queens #queensabc."
