Legends Only! Remy Ma Is Joining ABC's Queens in a Recurring Role
Get excited, Queens fans! Remy Ma is joining ABC's musical drama in a recurring role. The details are still scarce at this point, but the show's creator, Zahir McGhee, announced the exciting news on Nov. 18 via Twitter. Days later, Remy confirmed her upcoming role on Queens — which chronicles the reunion of a legendary women hip-hop group, now in their 40s, as they try to reclaim their throne — while guest-hosting The Wendy Williams Show. "Speaking of female rappers, we have great news," Remy told the audience. "I am officially on the new show Queens on ABC."
The news comes just weeks after Deadline reported that Eve was taking a hiatus from Queens due to her maternity leave. Lucky for us, the Grammy-winning rapper filmed several scenes before her departure, which means that she'll appear in most of season one. Her character, Brianna, aka Professor Sex, is being given an open-ended exit, ensuring a seamless return if Queens gets renewed for a second season.
