Following the success of the UK’s first ever series of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the second series will be returning to BBC Three in early 2021.
The show has also opened its casting process for the third series, calling all UK drag queens to compete in the Olympics of Drag.
The second series will see Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton returning as judges, with a host of other top-secret celebrity judges to be announced. Over the ten-week series, 12 British queens will battle it out to be crowned the Next Drag Superstar.
Series one saw Liverpool’s finest The Vivienne take the title in a close final with Divina De Campo and Baga Chipz. The second series promises to be even bigger than the first.
RuPaul commented: “Looking forward to better days! I’m happy to announce the triumphant return of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. 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’re also currently casting season three with the best and the brightest Great Britain has to offer. 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.”
The application deadline for series three casting is 14 November 2020.
The second series of Drag Race UK will air on BBC Three early next year.
