Drag Race fans rejoice! A new sickening spin-off is in the works.
On 13 September, World of Wonder and the broadcaster of Canada’s Drag Race – Crave – surprised fans when they announced their new drag-tastic series Slaycation.
In the upcoming show, six “fabulous, larger-than-life queens” from across the expansive Drag Race franchise will come together for a snow-filled vacation at a Canadian winter cabin.
“Winter is coming…Get ready for a new original series full of drama, fun, twists, and plenty of shenanigans in this winter wonderland,” World of Wonder teased on Instagram.
In addition to their relaxing winter getaway, the queens will also be tasked with putting on a fierce show for the mountain town’s local residents.
In a statement, World of Wonder bosses Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato gave further insight into the series and what fans can expect.
“In Slaycation, the queens get to let their hair down and truly relax as themselves while enjoying some fierce and frosty winter shenanigans. Of course, there’s always a twist – or even a twist on a twist – but you will see these artists as you have never seen them before,” they explained.
“We are excited to launch this World of Wonder format with our wonderful partners Blue Ant Media and Crave, and to bring this super fun show to audiences on Crave and WOW Presents Plus around the world.”
Shortly after the news was announced, Drag Race enthusiasts took to social media to express their excitement over the forthcoming series.
One person wrote: “REVEAL THE CAST (and if Fiercalicious is not in it, cancel it and film it again please).”
Another fan tweeted: “No, like you actually have no idea how excited I am for this.”
The announcement also sparked responses from Drag Race Down Under star Spankie Jackzon and Drag Race France‘s La Kahena.
“Omg cast me in this now!! I’m from New Zealand it’s fucking cold here my nips are made for this… High beams!!” Spankie wrote.
Kahena added: “If you want good barbecues and drama, cast me.”
Stay tuned for more information regarding release dates, casting announcements, trailers and more for Slaycation.
Winter is coming ❄👑
