Prepare for Plenty of KangaRu Puns on

RuPaul's Drag Race already airs locally, but, in exciting news, it's now it's being made here as well - courtesy of the aptly titled RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under.

RuPaul and Michelle Visage will be joining the judge's table, along with a third judge and celebrity guests who will be announced at a later date.

The "Down Under" edition to RuPaul's franchise is only the second series outside the USA to be judged by the two original American cast members.

"I can't wait for everybody to see that Down Underneath queens have a few of the greatest charisma, uniqueness, nerve and abilities on the planet".

RuPaul's Drag Race is officially coming to Australia and New Zealand as an eight-part Stan original series. International Production New Zealand will produce, with filming to begin in Auckland this week. Stan's chief content officer, Nick Forward, said that Drag Race was "already a huge hit with our audience".

Passion Distribution distributes the series globally, in line with it and WOW's distribution strategy.

The country's immigration department confirmed last week that 16 members of the cast and crew, including host RuPaul Charles, are in the city in managed isolation, which takes two-weeks and is mandatory for all new arrivals to the country. "Thank you to TVNZ OnDemand and Stan for providing a platform for these outrageous drag artists to share their heart, soul and humour".

The UK edition is now available on TVNZ OnDemand.

Hosted by executive producer RuPaul, and filmed entirely in New Zealand, RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under will see the fiercest Kiwi and Aussie queens go head-to-head, in the hopes of taking home the title of Down Under's first Drag Superstar.

Stan is the flawless home for the local version of Drag Race as you can stream pretty much every Drag Race episode there is, including the original U.S. seasons, the All Stars seasons, the Untucked episodes, the versions from the UK, Canada, Holland and Thailand, and even RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race, which features celebrities undergoing fabulous drag transformations. Untucked, meanwhile, follows every episode of both the main show and the spin-off.
