RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. Just Teased a Season 2 Premiere Date and Another Surprise. The British spinoff of the Emmy-winning franchise RuPaul’s Drag Race is returning in 2021. But, that’s not all the news the beloved host shared on Instagram.
On Monday, RuPaul took to Instagram to confirm that the British spinoff of the hit Emmy-winning show is coming back. And to make the announcement even better, Ru also shared that it's been renewed for a third season. For queens hoping for 15 minutes of fame, casting is now open.
"Looking forward to better days! I'm happy to announce the triumphant return of Ru Paul's Drag Race UK," Ru said in a statement. "Early in 2021, season 2 will arrive with all the hope, joy, laughter, and glitter you've come to expect from our brilliant queens. We're also currently casting season 3 with the best and the brightest Great Britain has to offer. We feel honored 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."
The first season of Drag Race U.K. was a hoot and a campy, refreshing reminder of just how good the show can be when contestants show up to simply have fun. The Vivienne was crowned victor and fan favorites included Baga Chipz and Cheryl Hole.
As fans know, the spinoff isn't the only way to immediately tap into the world of Drag Race. In addition to the U.K. version, the show has aired international versions based out of Canada, Thailand, Holland, and Chile.
