BBC3 says shantay to RuPaul’s Drag Race

BBC3 in the UK and World of Wonder have confirmed a second season of the UK version of hit format RuPaul’s Drag Race will hit screens in 2020.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK began on BBC3 last month

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK made its debut on online-only BBC3 last month and comes to an end on November 21, with applications for the show’s next 8×60′ run currently open until November 15.

The series will again see contestants take part in weekly challenges and face off against each other to stay in the competition.

Participants will compete in individual or team challenges that test a specific drag skill before taking on a main challenge and facing the panel of judges.

The UK version is also hosted by RuPaul Charles, while actor and singer Michelle Visage, who also appears in the original US version of the show, is among the judges.

Guest judges on S1 of the UK version so far have included Andrew Garfield, Geri Horner and Maisie Williams.

The original US version of the series, produced by World of Wonder, launched in 2009 and has since aired for 11 seasons, while remakes have also been ordered in Thailand and Canada.

The first season has been a success for the BBC, with 6.5 million total requests on iPlayer just over half-way through the series.

The show was commissioned by Fiona Campbell, controller of BBC3, and Phillips. The executive producers are RuPaul Charles, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Sally Miles and Bruce McCoy, and the BBC commissioning editor is Ruby Kuraishe.
