The global domination of RuPaul’s Drag Race isn’t stopping yet, with new international franchise Drag Race Sverige launching this week. Viewers in the UK better start their engines because they’ll be able to watch episodes weekly once the series premieres on Saturday, 4 March.

Drag Race Sverige is the 12th international franchise to air following versions in the UK, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, Australia and New Zealand, Chile, the Netherlands, Thailand, the Philippines — and even Belgium, which launched earlier this month.

There are plans for even more international editions, with spin-offs in Mexico, Brazil and Germany in the works.

Drag Race Sverige will be available to watch on WOW Presents Plus at 8.30pm GMT on Saturday, 4 March, in the UK, with episodes then released weekly at 1am GMT on Sundays thereafter.
