The popular new drag show Call Me Mother has been renewed for a second season on OUTtv.
After recently crowning a winner the network today announced the series renewal.
Citing it as the “most-watched OUTtv original series to date,” the series will return in 2022.
Call Me Mother: A new perspective on drag
When Call Me Mother dropped on OUTtv in October it became clear this show was something different.
The program offered a refreshing new take on drag, something not yet seen on TV before.
Hosted by Dallas Dixon, the first season featured drag mothers Miss Peppermint, Crystal and Barbada as they adopted and mentored the next generation of talent into their Drag Houses.
The show features 10 contestants from all walks of drag.
This included Kings, Queens, Trans and Non-binary contestants.
At its core was the heartfelt connection between the contestants and their drag mothers that drove the program to its success.
Audiences clearly fell in love with this fresh and intimate format, making it one of the most successful programs for OUTtv.
“The response from audiences has been overwhelming”
Philip Webb, COO of OUTtv praised the success of the program.
“Call Me Mother showcased diverse drag artistry that has had less mainstream representation until now, the response from audiences has been overwhelming.”
“We are looking forward to bringing audiences another season of Call Me Mother in 2022.”
Continuing the statement went on to cite the huge success of the program.
The show “has been the most-watched program on OUTtv’s platforms since launching in October 2021 and is the most-watched OUTtv original series to date.”
