Stop what you’re doing because RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will be returning with a second season in the new year.
A message from Mama Ru promised that the show’s return would bring in “better days”, reading: “Early in 2021, season two will arrive with all the hope, joy, laughter, and glitter you’ve come to expect from our brilliant queens.”
“We feel honoured that you’ve embraced our little show, and our only wish is that we can offer a smile at a time when we can all use it the most,” she added.
Season two was meant to be released this year but production was paused due to coronavirus.
The upcoming season will feature 12 queens competing to be named the UK’s next drag superstar (rather than ten, as with the last season), while RuPaul and Michelle Visage will once again appear on the show’s panel, with Alan Carr and Graham Norton returning as regular judges. The celebrity guest judges are yet to be announced, though Dawn French (as in, The Vicar of Dibley) has confirmed her appearance.
RuPaul also announced that casting for the show’s third season has begun, with the judges looking for “another fine set of fabulous queens to compete in the Olympics of Drag”. In the words of the great Baga Chipz: “Much bettah!”
