Grab your wigs because Stan’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under Season Three has officially been confirmed for 2023.

Following two hit seasons of the Stan Original Series, the Aussie iteration of the famed reality series will make a comeback on the streaming platform next year.

The latest series of Drag Race Down Under comes hot off the high heels of Spankie Jackzon‘s victory in Season Two, which was recently nominated for Best Entertainment Program in the 2022 AACTA Awards.

In a press release announcing the show’s return, host and mother of all drag queens RuPaul said she’s “so excited” for the next instalment.

“Australasian drag is spectacularly sickening,” she confessed. “I can’t wait for a new cast of queens to flash their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.”

Casting for the third round of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under 2023 has already closed. However, Stan Chief Content Officer Cailah Scobie is confident fans will be impressed with the upcoming cast.

“Aussies love seeing our exceptional homegrown talent in what’s known as the ‘Olympics of Drag’,” she said.

“We can’t wait to see all the incredible new queens that will soon sashay onto our screens.”

Will RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under Season Three Utilise the Same Cheeky Finale Trick as Past Seasons?

While there’s no word on how far in advance the new season will be filmed ahead of airing, we recently copped a pot full of tea about how the finales are typically filmed.

Speaking to So Dramatic! after her win, Spankie revealed that she had no clue that she had won the coveted drag competition until September 17, when the finale premiered on Stan.

“We filmed three different endings, and we didn’t find out until it aired. We had to wait that whole time,” she said.

This means her competitors, Kween Kong and Hannah Conda, also held onto hope that they had won for nearly a year since filming concluded. Ouch!

Spankie revealed that she could fake her reaction because she thought about what it would really feel like to take home the $50,000 prize money.

Honestly, forget the AACTAs… Get that Queen an Oscar, stat!
