Upon elimination, the fabulous queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race might exit the Werk Room, but their spirits never really leave the collective heart and mind of the show’s devoted audience. And now World of Wonder has put several fan-favorite legacies to good use as part of its upcoming seasonal slate of programming.
The production company behind RuPaul’s Drag Race announced Monday its subscription streaming service, WOW Presents Plus, will debut nine new programs this year as part of its Sickening Summer Series — many of which star memorable contestants who previously sashayed their way through various seasons of the long-running reality competition show.
Though she became the first gal to leave season 10 of Drag Race, Vanessa “Miss Vanjie” Mateo headlines the platform’s new docuseries Follow Me, which chronicles the daily lives of several past competitors including Aja (who’s also getting a standalone talk show, Ayo Sis), Gia Gunn, and more. Miss Vanjie’s season 10 sister Miz Cracker—who already hosts her popular Drag Race recap show Review with a Jew on YouTube is also getting her own show titled Miz Cracker’s JewTorials, during which she’ll offer beauty and wig advice with her signature comedic twist.
In addition to World of Wonder keeping it in the Drag Race family for its summer schedule, WOW Presents Plus is also tapping outside talent for Iconic with Brad Goreski, which is set to follow the titular stylist as he traces the fashionable histories of various queens.
“We’re excited to bring this sickening new slate of summer programming to our worldwide subscribers to WOW Presents Plus,” World of Wonder co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey said of the announcement in a statement. “With animated, scripted, and documentary programming that reflect WOW’s ongoing mission to give a platform to the underrepresented stories, the slate offers something for every squirrel friend this summer, available on-demand and around-the-clock on WOW Presents Plus.”
The first round of programming for the Sickening Summer Series is available now at a $3.99 monthly rate on WOW Presents Plus. Check out the full lineup of shows on the horizon below.
