Drag Race Italia joins the ever-growing list of the Emmy-winning reality competition series' international editions, including Drag Race Thailand, Chile's The Switch Drag Race, RuPaul's Drag Race UK, Canada's Drag Race, Drag Race Holland, Drag Race Down Under, Drag Race España, and the American original (currently premiering new All Stars 6 episodes Thursdays on Paramount+).

Since the start of 2021, the franchise has already crowned three winners: season 13's Symone, Down Under's Kita Mean, and UK season 2 champion Lawrence Chaney. España will crown its inaugural winner in the weeks ahead, as will All Stars 6, with a new set of judges already set to sashay into the Canada's Drag Race Werk Room for season 2 later this year.

Last year, producers Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey told EW they were eyeing multiple new territories for possible Drag Race expansions, with more expected to be announced soon.
