Drag Race Spain is the newest addition to RuPaul’s global empire.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the refreshing waters of Darienne Lake comes another Drag Race spin-off.

Hot on the heels of the Holland and UK editions, Drag Race Spain will be the third European entry in the franchise.

Like Holland and Canada before it, the new series will welcome a brand-new host and judging panel, who will be revealed in the months to come.

Fans in the US, UK and all around the world will be able to watch on WOW Presents Plus with English, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles, on the same day as episodes air on the Spanish streamer ATRESplayer PREMIUM.

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, co-founders of World of Wonder and Drag Race executive producers, said: “It is such an honour to welcome Spain to the Drag Race family, partner with Artres and bring the fierce fabulous glamor of Spanish queens to new audiences around the world on WOW Presents Plus.

“In these dark and challenging times we believe people need Drag Race’s joy, laughter, and heart now more than ever.”

Drag Race Spain will be produced by Atresmedia TV in collaboration with Buendía Estudios and executive produced by World of Wonder. Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, and Tom Campbell are executive producers.

Drag Race Spain comes as franchise shows no signs of slowing down.

It comes as fans prepare for an already bumper year of back-to-back eleganza.

The BBC has confirmed that Drag Race UK season two will air early in 2021, with production having resumed in November following a length mid-season break caused by the pandemic.

A third UK season will follow later in the year, while in the US, season 13 and All Stars 6 are both in the can.

Drag Race Holland recently finished its first run, with Envy Peru taking the cron, while earlier this year Priyanka became the first Canadian winner of the franchise.

There’s been no news on second season for either edition, however Barbato and Bailey have teased that there could be yet more spin-offs.

In June they said “three or four” international versions were “in the works”, meaning after Holland and Spain, there’s at least one more to come.
