Yass Kween! RuPaul’s Drag Race (RPDR) is finally coming to Canada.
After the fabulous ‘Queen of the North’ Brook Lynn Hytes became runner up of season 11 of RPDR, it makes sense for Canada to finally get its own adaptation of the iconic reality TV series.
Drag Race Canada is a new Crave Original Series. The competition will also stream on OUTtv.
“I am proud to announce that the Drag Race family is expanding as Crave is about to begin production on Drag Race Canada,” said RuPaul in a recent press release. “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!”
The 10-episode series will begin casting this fall, with each episode being an hour long. Drag Race Canada hosts and judges will be announced at a later date, but Brook Lynn Hytes needs to at least be a guest judge.
Crave and OUTtv will also stream future episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.S., airing the same day as the host broadcast, as well as RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. All previous seasons of RPDR and RPDR All Stars will be available on Crave. Both television shows are already available on OUTtv.
RuPaul’s Drag Race premiered in 2009, with African queen Bebe Zaraha Benet winning the crown as the first-ever drag race winner.
Canadian queens will need to bring charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to win the crown.
“Ladies and gentleman, start your engines and may the best woman win!”
