Last year, Drag Race Down Under crowned New Zealand queen Kita Mean as the show’s inaugural winner.
She and her Kiwi sister Anita Wigl’it have filmed appearances in Auckland for the new season.
Speaking about the new season, RuPaul said working with “the warm and wonderful Down Under crew is something I look forward to all year long.”
Rhys Nicholson said earlier this year he was “vibrating with excitement” to return to the Drag Race Down Under judging panel for season two.
“I’m back, back, back again for another season of Down Under tomfoolery with my stage mother Ru and daddy Michelle,” he said.
“I’m so proud to be a part of this family.
“What a bloody privilege it is to see this new batch of girls take it to the runway and show the world what makes Australasian drag so special.”
