These drag supermonsters are no longer hiding under your bed.
On Monday, August 15, the Boulet Brothers announced a multi-project production deal with AMC Networks’ horror-centric streaming service, Shudder, to expand the Dragula franchise to new heights. The deal includes “a new season, a new spinoff series, and an additional special set” of episodes from The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula. All three projects are scheduled to premiere within the next 12 months.
The Boulet Brothers said in a statement:
“This is an incredibly exciting time to be a Dragula fan. This new partnership with Shudder (and the AMC family) provides an incredible opportunity for us to expand our cinematic universe and to flesh out all of the characters, stories, and stars that audiences have fallen in love with over the years. We couldn’t be more excited about the content that we’re about to unleash, and if fans have felt shocked and engaged with our content in the past, they are truly not ready for what’s coming next. It’s going to be a wild, fun, and terrifying new ride.”
The first series to come out of this new production deal is a yet-untitled Dragula spinoff. The release notes that “the series’ format, content and cast are still being closely guarded, but details on the project’s creative are forthcoming.”
Shudder’s Craig Engler said in the release:
“With The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula and Resurrection, the Boulet Brothers have proven to be uniquely talented producers and storytellers, creating innovative, inclusive programming that smashes genres and draws a large and loyal following. We’re excited to be working with them on their upcoming new competition series, with more to come in 2023.”
This is an incredibly exciting announcement for new and longtime fans of Dragula who were craving for more content in the next few months. As always, may the World’s Next Drag Supermonster win!
