The sequel all of your squirrel friends have been waiting for is almost upon us—no, not Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, we are talking about Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia With Hate.
The original 2016 film starred Bianca Del Rio as a teacher from New York who is fired from his job at a small-town Texas high school because he is gay, so he returns disguised a woman to seek revenge on a variety of wacky characters from the bigoted town.
Mark your calendars because Bianca has announced that Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia With Hate will be released on demand and in select theaters on May 18. She also posted a sneak peek at the movie’s poster:
The “shequel” picks up where the first movie left off, with Richard (Bianca Del Rio) still teaching at the school, but Debbie (Rachel Dratch) being sent to jail for having “inappropriate relations” with a student. When Debbie is released from prison, she seeks revenge on Richard/Bianca—which eventually sends Bianca to Russia.
Not only are Bianca and Rachel Dratch back, but even more queens have been added for the sequel, including Darienne Lake, Lady Bunny and Katya—who plays Bianca’s lover?
“She’s brilliant in it,” answered Bianca, when asked about working with Katya. “And she’s psychotic and crazy, which is exactly what we want.”
“She makes me look normal, which is the scary part,” she added.
That is quite the feat.
“She [Bianca] is a force to be reckoned with, a villain who needs to be stopped,” replied Katya.
We couldn’t agree more.
Will Bianca and Katya live happily ever after? You will find out when Hurricane Bianca 2 is released next year. Until then, watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the set of the “shequel” below.
