In a podcast with fellow queen Alaska, Willam alluded to further expansion of the franchise saying: "I know there’s other drag race things happening".

Have you ever thought about Drag Race spin-offs you’d like to see? If you’ve thought that a drag race for juniors or celebrities would be a good idea, you are in luck.

Willam Belli, the iconic queen known for her shoe collection, humour, and shocking disqualification from season 4 of Drag Race, recently revealed on her podcast with Alaska Thunderfuck that two new drag race iterations are likely to come.

When asked about a potential Drag Race Canada happening, Willam responded: “I think so, as far as I know, there’s other Drag Race things happening, like I’ve heard that there’s a Drag Race Juniors and a Drag Race Celebrity too”.

These two iterations would add to a growing list of Drag Race iterations, which include the soon to come Drag Race UK  and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, which has already had four seasons.

As for Drag Race Canada, it’s happening. 

In a statement, RuPaul Said: “I am proud to announce that the Drag Race family is expanding as Crave is about to begin production on DRAG RACE CANADA. The panel and judges will be from the Great White North, representing Canada’s very best. This new franchise has my whole-hearted blessing. Good luck…and don’t puck it up!”

Filming for Drag Race Canada is expected to begin this fall. 

Second runner up on season 11 and first-ever Canadian to be featured on Ru Paul’s Drag Race Brooke Lynn Hytes took to Twitter to send out a casting call to Canadian queens saying “I cannot wait for the world to see the talent my home country has!”.

In some strange news, Willam was also featured on House Hunters this week?

In the episode, Willam and his BFF Anthony go shopping for a vacation home in Palm Springs. One YouTube user kindly uploaded the episode for William fans to enjoy. 

And Twitter totally lived for this crossover: 



Whether or not Drag Race juniors or celebrities happens, there is no doubt that RuPaul and her Queens sit at the thrones of an empire that has achieved world domination.
