RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under premiere date revealed

RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under premiere date revealed
The premiere date for the latest spinoff of RuPaul's Drag Race is revealed.

The first ever edition of RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under will premiere on May 1, it has been announced.

The latest spinoff, which has RuPaul and Michelle Visage on the judging panel, was filmed in New Zealand earlier this year with a mix of Australian and Kiwi queens taking part.

Local broadcasters Stan and TV NZ have now revealed the premiere date of May 1 - around a week after the latest US season comes to an end.

In the US, the show will be released weekly on the WOW Presents Plus service, while a broadcaster in the UK has yet to be confirmed but will "be announced soon".

BBC Three showed the Canada's Drag Race spinoff, while Netflix is home to the US version and WOW Presents Plus UK carries the Dutch spinoff.

Elsewhere, filming is believed to have already finished on both the third series of the UK version and the new international all-stars spinoff.
