Will RuPaul's Drag Race air on Netflix? Here's how to watch Season 13 from the UK.

We know 2021 will already get off to a promising start because RuPaul's Drag Race is finally returning to our screens. Season 13 kicks off on January 1 (RuPaul's Drag Race UK is coming on January 14!!) and, thanks to the preview clip, we know there's some twists coming.

This year, 13 contestants will be sashaying for the crown and the series will start with six Lip-Sync for Your Life battles in the very first episode. But one thing that will remain the same is the panel of expert judges. RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews will of course be returning.

But will UK-based Drag Race stans be able to enjoy Season 13 and is it heading to Netflix? Here's the tea on viewing the latest series.

Will RuPaul's Drag Race Season 13 be on Netflix UK?

For the first time ever, Season 13 will premiere across six TV networks. VH1, The CW, MTV, MTV2, PopTV, and Logo will all air the first episode on Friday 1 January. Traditionally, the show would then be available to UK viewers on Netflix the day after the UK air date.

Today (Dec 31) Netflix confirmed that Drag Race S13 WILL be available on its streaming service in the UK.

Will RuPaul's Drag Race Season 13 be available in the UK?

RuPaul's Drag Race will be on Netflix in the UK. If you don't have Netflix, it's possible that it might become available on WOW Presents Plus at a later date. The streaming platform is already home to Drag Race Season 1 to Season 10, Drag Race All Stars and Drag Race Holland.

What time will each episode be available?

Netflix confirmed that the first episode will be available on Saturday, meaning that the UK will be one day behind the US air date. So if you don't want to see spoilers, stay off social media on Friday nights and Saturday mornings.

While they haven't announced a specific time, most shows on Netlix in the UK are released at 8am, so we expect Drag Race season 13 will be the same.

Will Untucked be available in the UK?

The short answer is that we don't know. No announcement has yet been made. For season 12, Untucked was released all in one go after the main season, which was very annoying for Drag Race fans. Unfortunately, we think the same might happen again. We'll update this page as soon as we know more.
