Paramount+ today announced that ‘Drag Race Italia’ will arrive on the streaming service in Italy and will subsequently be available, in addition to Italy, also in the United States and Latin America later this year. The news follows the recent announcement of three new editions of Drag Race in Brazil, Germany and Mexico and a ‘Global Drag Race All Stars’, which will be available on Paramount+ this year in their respective countries.
“‘Drag Race’ has become a global phenomenon and we have been honored to be there from the beginning with the incredibly talented team of RuPaul and World of Wonder,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios & Paramount Media Networks. “In expanding Paramount+’s global footprint, it was important to recapture Drag Race in key international markets while also building an interconnected competition series. Global Drag Race All Stars is like a world Super Bowl for Drag!”
“With the third season of ‘Drag Race Italia’ we are thrilled to expand our partnership with Paramount+ and Wow Presents Plus, and continue our mission to spread the joy of drag around the world,” said Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, CEO of World of Wonder. RuPaul’s Drag Race, the most popular reality show in history with 27 Emmy® Awards, is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and the multi-Emmy Award-winning media company World of Wonder. The new season of the Italian version will be produced by Ballandi.
