This fall, RuPaul is taking his reality competition series, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ overseas

God save the queens. RuPaul’s Drag Race is back but with an exciting new twist — this upcoming season features queens from across the pond, in the United Kingdom. This will be the first-ever season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and will feature celebrity guest judges like Geri Horner, Michaela Coel, Andrew Garfield, and Maisie Williams.

“I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent of the Queen’s queens,” RuPaul said in a statement. “I predict that we will be doing this English edition of Drag Race for many years to come. I think also, audiences around the world are going to start to require the English version, because it’s different, it’s the same, but it’s different. There’s a different tone.”

RuPaul announced two other upcoming seasons of the Emmy-award winning competition series, RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars 5 and RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 12. However, there are no official premiere dates for either season.
