‘Drag Race Canada’ to bring even more queens to our screens

RuPaul’s drag reality empire has found a new pool of performers to bring to the world, announcing a new international season of Drag Race today.

“I am proud to announce that the Drag Race family is expanding as Crave is about to begin production on Drag Race Canada,” RuPaul said of the news.

“The panel and judges will be from the Great White North, representing Canada’s very best. This new franchise has my whole-hearted blessing. Good luck… and don’t puck it up!”

Drag Race Canada will be the fourth entry in the franchise, following the original US series, Drag Race Thailand and the upcoming UK spin-off.

The 10-episode series will begin production this Spring, promising hour-long episodes of the drag competition.

Like Thailand, Canada’s version will find its own host and judging panel, while the UK version will feature Ru and Michelle – as well as permanent judges Alan Carr and Graham Norton.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is set to debut later this year on BBC3.
