UPDATE (9/26/2019): It seems that RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. is starting off as quite the international venture. In addition to debuting in the U.K. on October 3, the show will debut on the streaming platform WOW Presents Plus, the same day. Now, World of Wonder has announced that the show will also air on Logo, the network that launched the original series, days later.
Beginning October 11, Drag Race UK will air on Logo in the U.S. at 8pm ET/PT. Yes ladies, that means you have to avoid Twitter and Facebook if you have friends in the UK, for a full week to keep it from being spoiled. Or, of course, you could just buy a WOW pass.
ORIGINAL (9/20/2019): RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. is almost here and we finally have confirmation on how to (legally) watch it in the United States.
We know a hell of a lot about the latest Drag Race spin-off. We’ve gotten the run down on the judges (Maisie Williams, MNEK, and The Spice Girls’ Geri Horner, are among our favorites). Ru has even debuted the initial lineup of ten queens: Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat, The Vivienne, and Vinegar Strokes. And obviously, it’s going to be hosted by RuPaul and his longtime friend (now Strictly Come Dancing star) Michelle Visage with Alan Carr and Graham also serving as judges.
Just this week the show trotted out the hunky lineup that composes the Brit Crew and even dropped the season’s trailer. But finally, we know how those of us Stateside can watch.
The show, which is a collaboration between the BBC and World of Wonder, will debut in the United States on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 3. p.m EST on World of Wonder’s streaming service WOW Presents Plus. International territories (except Canada, the U.K., and Ireland) will be able to stream the series on the platform as well.
For the uninformed, WOW Presents Plus, boasts what is undoubtedly the largest amount of Drag Race-related original content of any streaming platform. And all that can be yours for just $3.99 per month after a 30-day free trial.
RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. will see RuPaul making a trip overseas in search of the queen with the most charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent in the United Kingdom, follow along as they compete in individual and team mini-challenges that test their skills before taking on the maxi challenge and facing the judges.
