The RuPaul's Drag Race season 11 finalist will judge the series with Brad Goreski and Traci Melchor after the success of the international all-star edition RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs. the World.

Eh-leganza is about to go global when RuPaul's international all-stars descend upon North America to compete on Canada's Drag Race: Canada vs. the World.

Production company World of Wonder announced Thursday that the Drag Race franchise will welcome queens from its multiple worldwide iterations to compete on Canada vs. the World when it premieres later this year, with returning judges Brooke Lynn Hytes, Brad Goreski, and Traci Melchor set to preside over the series' panel.

The six-episode season will see the queens competing for the title of "Queen of the Mother-Pucking World," with the cast being revealed in the near future.

Canada vs. the World follows the success of February's RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs. the World, which pitted nine queens from RuPaul's Drag Race, Drag Race Holland, Drag Race Thailand, and Canada's Drag Race against British queens from the show's host nation for the franchise's first international crown, which was ultimately won by Drag Race UK season 1 star Blu Hydrangea

The Canadian version of Drag Race saw success upon its debut on Crave in Canada and WOW Presents Plus in the United States, producing popular winners like Priyanka and Icesis Couture across its first two seasons.

"Growing up, there weren't a lot of people like me on TV. It's kind of interesting now to be Canada's first drag superstar, because now someone who looks like me can be like, 'Oh, I guess I can do that too!'" Priyanka, the franchise's first Indo-Caribbean winner, previously told EW after taking the Canada's Drag Race season 1 crown in 2020. "We're normalizing people of color winning things. Shea CouleéJaida Essence Hall. That's normal!"

Canada's Drag Race: Canada vs. the World premieres later this year on Crave and WOW Presents Plus.
