A clue from Michelle Visage on Instagram has revealed Drag Race Down Under could be one step closer to filming.
The program is set to film in New Zealand with a filming date yet to be confirmed.
However, Michelle Visage has dropped a hint that she could be getting ready to film shortly.
Is Drag Race Down Under getting ready to start filming?
Ever since Kita Mean took home the crown on season one of Drag Race Down Under fans have been dying to know when to expect a second season.
In November Rupaul all but confirmed the second season would be filming in New Zealand after the casting call was announced.
As the new year looms speculation has been rife about when filming on the new season will begin.
Late yesterday Michelle Visage dropped a clue on her Instagram story that indicated she may already be in New Zealand.
In amongst several of her Instagram stories was a particularly down under question.
Michelle Visage posed a question to her followers.
“Best Natural skincare brands in New Zealand? Go…”
Call it a long shot but the post is a solid hint that Michelle Visage could already be in New Zealand or preparing to land shortly.
Which can only mean that Drag Race Down Under could be just weeks away from commencing filming.
Brisbane Queens lying low amid Covid concerns
The Drag Race Down Under rumour mill has continued to go into overdrive in recent months.
Discussion around songs and content that queens were required to learn for auditions has been widely circulated.
However, no contestant names have been publicly speculated as yet.
With the New Year kicking off over 100,000 Covid-19 cases in Queensland many Brisbane performers have seemingly disappeared into isolation.
Many performers have taken to social media to announce they are isolating due to contracting Covid-19 or being a close contact of a case.
But the crisis may have been the perfect cover for some to slip under the radar and out of the country to prepare for filming.
With New Zealand still requiring travellers to quarantine, it seems feasible that contestants would be needing to arrive shortly, especially if Michelle Visage is on her way.
After the first season of Drag Race Down Under featured no drag performers from Queensland it is expected some will be making an appearance this time around.
Qnews spoke to Art Simone late last year about casting for the second season and some Brisbane queens we would love to see on the program.
