The ever-growing RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise is expanding even further in 2022 with a series of new spinoffs and related shows premiering on the WOW Presents Plus streaming service.

When it comes to international editions, fans are eagerly awaiting shows like Drag Race España season 2, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under season 2, Drag Race Italia season 2, Drag Race Philippines, and Drag Race France, to name a few. VH1 is also expected to release RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race season 2 and a potential Drag Race All Stars-like season to air this summer. Meanwhile, some of the fan-favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race queens have landed their own spinoff shows in the streaming world.

Now, an original docuseries called Frockumentary will show the rise to fame of the Frock Destroyers.

Why R Humans?
From the minds behind Trixie Mattel and Katya’s long-running UNHhhh series comes a new show on WOW Presents Plus. Why R Humans? is described as a “hilarious and provocative format-busting docu-series that ponders the future of mankind,” so it should have a pretty different format from other shows found on the streaming service. It is still unclear if certain queens will be featured in this series, but it has a very interesting concept nonetheless.
Why R Humans? premieres Wednesday, March 30 at 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. ET.
UNHhhh (Season 7)
Speaking of Trixie and Katya, UNHhhh will obviously be back with a brand-new batch of hilarious episodes. After meeting on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7, Trixie and Katya went on to forge their friendship while filming new episodes of UNHhhh. As per usual, so-called Tracy and Katherine will talk about whatever they want, because it’s their show, and not ours. Trixie and Katya are the queens of WOW+, and this show isn’t going anywhere. As of January 2022, UNHhhh has reached 173 episodes, so they’re closer than ever to reaching the 200-episode milestone.
UNHhhh season 7 is scheduled to premiere in April 2022.
