The first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race has been added to Netflix UK

Halleloo! Now we’re just waiting on All Stars…

UK viewers can now watch the entirety of RuPaul’s Drag Race, because the first season has finally made a comeback on Netflix.

The inaugural season – which features iconic contestants such as Bebe Zahara Benet, Shannel, Nina Flowers, Ongina and the Tammie Brown – was uploaded to the streaming service yesterday.

It was originally on Netflix when the Emmy Award winning series debuted on the platform, but was removed in 2015 due to licensing agreements.

Over the weekend, seasons 2-7 were also re-uploaded after departing earlier this year (30 April).

Shortly after, Netflix tweeted: “Gentlemen, restart your engines, RuPaul’s Drag Race seasons 2-7 are back!”

Now that all ten seasons are available, we’re hoping Untucked and All Stars will follow suit…

In other Drag Race news, it was announced last week that VH1 will air a very special instalment titled Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular, which will bring together eight of the show’s favourite queens.

So who’s making a comeback to the main stage? Hold on to your wigs, because it’s one heck of a line-up.

Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique, and Trixie Mattel will all be joining RuPaul for the festive frolics.

We can already see Shangie popping out of a Christmas-wrapped box.

We’ve been promised lip-sync performances of songs from RuPaul’s two festive albums Slay Belles and Christmas Party, along with more challenges perfect for Holiday Hunties.

Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and Todrick Hall make the episode a family affair, as they help Mama Ru crown the very first Drag Race Christmas Queen.

Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular will air on VH1 at 8pm (ET).

We’ve yet to get an airdate (and network) for the UK broadcast, but you’ll know as soon as we do.
