‘Vagrant Queen’ is a science-fiction show that follows Elida, a former child Queen who has absolutely no interest in claiming her title and has been living her life as a scavenger since Commander Lazaro killed her mother. Her life changes when her frenemy Isaac informs her that her mother is still alive. Elida teams up with Isaac and a mechanic, Amae, to take down Lazaro’s empire and rescue her mother from Elida’s former home.
The intergalactic show is based on the critically acclaimed eponymous comic book series from Vault Comics, written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Jason Smith. It is adapted to screen by Jem Garrard. The show had created a lot of buzz among the sci-fi fanatics because of its vibrant and eye-catchy visuals. Many also felt that the show is along the same lines as hit MCU films ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’ and ‘Captain Marvel.’ Now that season 1 has ended, you must be wondering if there will be a ‘Vagrant Queen’ season 2. Read on.
Vagrant Queen Season 2 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘Vagrant Queen’ season 1 premiered on Friday, March 27, 2020, at 10 pm ET on SyFy. It consisted of 10 episodes with a runtime of 55-60 minutes each and ended on June 4, 2020.
The show’s fourth episode was originally supposed to air on Friday, April 17, 2020, at 10 p.m. ET, but it was preempted. It was then moved to air on Thursday, April 23, 2020, at 11 p.m ET. The rest of the episodes were also scheduled to air on Thursdays, meaning, the series had been removed from its primetime slot. This is not a good sign from any channel since it indicates that it is simply burning off the remaining episodes ahead of cancellation.
With poor ratings of 0.07 in the 18-49 demo and around 0.37 million viewers during its premiere, the season’s numbers continued to fall across the episodes. Considering these factors, the chances of renewal are slim. In our opinion, ‘Vagrant Queen’ season 2 is most likely cancelled. But if it gets international financing or syndication deals, it might still get a season 2. In the unlikely scenario that this happens, we can expect ‘Vagrant Queen’ season 2 to premiere sometime in 2022.
