World of Wonder, the production company behind the show, is teaming up with BBC Three to launch RuPaul's Drag Race U.K.!
The announcement has already created some buzz! BBC Three broke the news on their social media accounts with the help of RuPaul. Check out the short, yet fierce announcement below:
RuPaul has confirmed that she will be returning as the main judge alongside long-time judge, Michelle Visage. Whether some of the current American version judges will be joining or not is yet to be confirmed.
Here is what Ru had to say: “It is a dream come true to extend our royal family to the United Kingdom with our partners at BBC Three. I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens. And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge.”
RuPaul's Drag Race UK will be filmed in London and will have a huge budget for costumes and production and bosses are hoping that a star is born.
This is great news both for fans and for RuPaul's crew. The show has become a worldwide phenomenon that brought the drag queen scene to the forefront of pop culture.
