Stan confirm RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under is returning for Season 3
After the epic first two seasons of the hit show, the Stan Original series will make its bold and outlandish return to our screens in 2023.
Host RuPaul, also known as the mother of all drag queens and the creator of the series, is back on the ride.
The announcement comes on the heels of Spankie Jackzon being crowned the new superstar of Down Under Drag Race in season 2, which was recently nominated for Best Entertainment Program at the 2022 AACTA (Australian Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards which will be held in Sydney this December.
Speaking about the show’s big return, RuPaul said: “I’m so excited for RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under Season 3!

“Australia’s drag is spectacularly disgusting, and I can’t wait for a new cast of queens to show their charisma, uniqueness, grit and talent.”
Casting for Season 3 closed last week, so it will now be up to a new lineup of Australia’s and New Zealand’s fiercest drag queens to battle it out on the runway to wrest the crown from her in 2023.
The new season will see the queens serve up the high fashion reality with themed weeks and perform in hilarious mini and maxi challenges, as well as all-important lip syncing for their life battles.
Among the challenges, there are plenty of somber and candid moments in the workroom, where the queens often open up about some of their deepest and darkest experiences.
Cailah Scobie, Stan’s Chief Content Officer, said, “The fans spoke and we listened! Both seasons of Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under have been such a hit that we knew we had to go to round three.”

“Australians love to see our exceptional local talent in what’s known as the ‘Drag Olympics’ and we can’t wait to see all the amazing new queens soon to hit our screens.”
Spankie Jackzon was named the winner of the show in 2022, with Hannah Conda and Kween Kong making it to the final.
The third season of Stan’s original series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will be released in 2023, only in Stan.
