Drag Race confirms queens for new spinoffWorld of Wonder/Guy Levy - BBC

Some of your favourite RuPaul's Drag Race queens will be going on holiday together in a streaming spinoff.

The producers of Drag Race are bringing the six-part series Slaycation to WOW Presents Plus, as six iconic queens venture into the Canadian wilderness for fun and frivolity.

Slaycation will follow the queens as they plan a "dragtastic performance" for the local community, with plenty of shade and drama along the way (via Entertainment Weekly).

Drag Race UK winner Lawrence Chaney leads the cast, alongside Kandy Muse (Drag Race US season 13 and All Stars 8) and BOA (Canada's Drag Race season 1).

The cast of Slaycation will also include Kerri Colby (Drag Race US season 14), Jada Shada Hudson (Canada's Drag Race season 3 runner-up) and Luxx Noir London (Drag Race season 15 third place).

Here's the official synopsis for the series: "The brand-new format from RuPaul's Drag Race producers World of Wonder, Slaycation is a six-part unscripted series featuring six, fabulous, larger-than-life queens from across the international Drag Race franchise, as they vacation together at a Canadian winter cabin.

"With fun activities, frivolity, and a hint of drama, their fish-out-of-water escapades culminate in a dragtastic performance for the local community."

Slaycation will be premiering later this year on WOW Presents Plus around the world.

Meanwhile, the runway competition is heating up on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 9, where the queens are competing this year for a $200,000 donation to the charity of their choice, provided by The Palette Fund.

The format of All Stars was changed quite dramatically for this go-round, with eliminations scrapped entirely in favour of a leaderboard system where queens compete to win a Beautiful Benefactress Badge each week.

RuPaul's Drag Race US airs on MTV in the US and WOW Presents Plus in the UK.
