‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Sashays Back To The BBC For A Second Season

Drag Race was brought to the United Kingdom for the first time last month in search for a charismatic queen.

Sling up the (absolute) slags and fix your costume destroyers, in mild of the truth that RuPaul's Drag Race UK will return for one more season.

Series one - now airing Thursday nights at 8PM online - has been a runaway success for BBC Three with 6.5 million total requests on iPlayer just over half way through the series.

"I need to thank the BBC, and every one of our fans for their staggering help of RuPaul's Drag Race UK", Emmy-winning host and maker RuPaul stated of the restoration in an announcement.

Three and World of Wonder - the production company behind the global Drag Race series - announced Wednesday the United Kingdom's first-ever franchise spin-off has been greenlit for season 2.

Having brought RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE UK to British screens for the first time to critical acclaim, BBC Three have opened applications to find another set of sickening queens to compete in the Olympics of drag.

"RuPaul's Drag Race U.K." plays on the BBC's youth-skewed online channel, BBC Three, and its on-demand service, iPlayer. Any queens with charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent are to apply.

The US version of Drag Race has been nominated for 29 Emmys and has won 13, including awards for best reality-competition programme and host in 2018.

The deadline for applications if Friday, November 15 2019.

Also cop seasons 1-11 of the U.S. version as well as RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars and RuPaul's Drag Stars Untucked. "The show is a huge hit for us and we're very much looking forward to unleashing another series for our audience to tuck into".

The current season's finale airs at 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 21, exclusively on BBC iPlayer in the United Kingdom. It all turned out so "much bettah" than we could have imagined, from working with BBC Three to the United Kingdom queens' boundless talents.

The new eight-part season was commissioned by BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell and Kate Phillips, the BBC's entertainment chief.

Fans of the show will be familiar with the sorts of challenges we might see in a second run.
