Racers, start your engines, and may the best Down Under drag queen win!
Following a smash hit first season, Stan, the home of RuPaul’s Drag Race in Australia, has announced that a second season of Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will make its return to screens in 2022.
The season will feature host RuPaul – a.k.a the mother of all drag queens – along for the ride.
The stellar first season saw Kita Mean (pictured) take out the top honours amid an incredible line-up of queens and celebrity guests, including Kylie Minogue, Dannii Minogue and Taika Waititi.
Now, it will be up to a new batch of the fiercest drag queens from Australia and New Zealand to fight tooth and nail to be crowned winner for 2022.
Casting is now open, closing October 5th. Budding queens can submit their casting applications at the following link: https://www.rdrcasting.com/
The Stan Original Series will be going into production soon, with additional judges and special celebrity guests to be announced at a later date.
Continuing the multiple award-winning format, Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will see queens serving high fashion realness, mini and max challenges, shady and heartfelt moments in the workroom, and of course, the all-important lip-sync for your life battles.
RuPaul said, “I am thrilled to produce and host a brand new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under. We’ve only just begun to shine a worldwide spotlight on the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of Australasian queens.”
Cailah Scobie, Stan’s chief content officer, said, “Aussie fans loved the Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under and demanded a second season. As the most awarded reality competition show in TV history, the decision was an easy one, and we can’t wait to see the incredible talent that the show will unveil after the high bar set by season one.”
