Eve Goes On Maternity Leave From Hit Show "Queens," But Will She Return?

Eve Going On Maturnity leave from hit show Queens, but will she return? ABC Queens with Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez.


ABC's Queens starring Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez has become one of my fave TV shows, especially after Tuesday's epic rap battle between Brianna (Eve) and Naomi (Brandy). I have already watched that episode twice, and I may watch it again today.

For those unfamiliar with the show, it's a drama about 4 women in their 40s who reunite to recapture the fame they once had as a top female rap group in the 90s.

Well, a couple of days after the show's rap battle goes viral, Deadline is now reporting that Eve has gone on maternity leave to prepare for the birth of her first child in February 2022. In preparation for Eve's departure, the show adjusted their schedule so Eve could film additional scenes, but unfortunately, she will be missing from some episodes.

Now, that is not unexpected; however, I am concerned about the part of the story where they say Eve's storyline was wrapped up in a way that she could return if she chooses to, barring the show is not canceled. Deadline also pointed out how Eve commutes from her home in the UK to film Queens in Atlanta. So, obviously, that could be an issue with a new baby.

I hope Eve was not used as a hook, similar to how Big Sky used Ryan Phillippe, just to get people to be more inclined to watch the show, only to have her leave once we are invested in her character. In my opinion, the show needs Brandy and Eve. Nadine is much better than I thought she would be and is an excellent complement to the ladies. Naturi Naughton, who shined on Ghost, is the fourth wheel and is struggling to make her character interesting.


Do y'all think the show will still be good if Eve leaves? Can Brandy carry the show?
