Think you have what it takes to win Canada’s Drag Race? Well, you might have a shot. Crave just ordered a second season of the wildly popular reality series, and sent out a casting call for new artists who might be feeling especially competitive.
“We were delighted by the incredible talent showcased in Season 1! We’re excited and honoured to continue this celebration of creativity, love, inclusion, and awesome Canadian drag culture,” Laura Michalchyshyn, chief creative officer and co-president of content at Blue Ant Studios, said in a statement.
“We couldn’t ask for better partners in Crave and World of Wonder and can’t wait to introduce audiences to more inspiring queens in Season 2.”
Trevor Boris, of Big Brother Canada and Paradise Hotel, has been named showrunner for Season 2. Details of the production have yet to be announced, though Blue Ant hopes to start shooting “in the coming months.” It’ll be interesting to see how social distancing and other COVID protocols affect the show’s tone, but presumably the queens will take it in stride.
