Trailers for RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. have a history of being… unhinged, and the first one for the upcoming third season is no exception.
Last month, the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. Season 3 was RuVealed. The 12 queens competing for the coveted title of the U.K’s Next Drag Superstar are Anubis, Charity Kase, Choriza May, Elektra Fence, Ella Vaday, Kitty Scott-Claus, Krystal Versace, River Medway, Scarlett Harlett, Vanity Milan, Veronica Green (who is returning after leaving the competition early last season due to testing positive for COVID-19), and Victoria Scone — who is the franchise’s first cisgender queen contestant.
The preview for the new season shows the queen in their natural habitat: getting rowdy in a pub, pouring pints, and noshing on some fish and chips. As if watching the queens party weren’t enough, we also get some new clips of Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr at the judges’ panel, as well as… Judge Judy popping out of a champagne bottle?! We said it was unhinged!
We also now know September 23 is when Drag Race U.K. Season 3 will premiere worldwide (excluding the U.K. and Canada) on WOW Presents Plus.
Earlier this year, Scottish queen Lawrence Chaney was crowned the U.K.’s Next Drag Superstar on the finale of Drag Race U.K. Season 2. “The truth is for years people have been sleeping on Scottish drag queens, but this season was so fresh. It was super special and I think that’s what people connected with,” Lawrence told the BBC Three after her win.
Who will take home the crown this time around? Pour some piping hot English tea and check out the new trailer below to start picking out your faves.
