Co-created by Johnnie Ingram and Stephen Warren, We’re Here is an American reality television series. The show which features former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela premiered on 23rd April 2020. The trio of drag queens can be seen traveling across the United States to recruit small-residents to participate in one-night-only drag shows.
In the six-episodes of the first season, we saw Bob, Shangela, and Eureka travel the nation from Gettysberg, Pennysylvania, to Twin Falls, Idaho. They rode in giant, individually themed cars designed by Marla Weinhoff, the collaborator of Lady Gaga while helping queer twenty-somethings, ex-homophobic mothers, straight male musicians transform into drag superstars sporting wigs, wheels, and dresses across spectacular lip-sync performances.
Renewal of the Docuseries
The HBO network announced the renewal of the trio’s docuseries in a heartfelt Instagram post. The announcement comes amidst nationwide protests against police brutality and at the top of LGBTQIA+ Pride month.
It said, “We’re Here is about spreading love and change through the transformative power of drag. The queens and the communities that embrace them prove that love, compassion and a willingness to listen can spark change. With that, we hope the renewal of We’re Here for a second season will play a small part in the ongoing fight for justice and equality. Our queens will continue to travel the country uplifting the queer community and creating joy where you might least expect it.”
The trio has plans to take the second season overseas. In an interview with RadioTimes.com, they revealed that although the locations for the second season have not yet been confirmed, they have a few ideas which can be implemented if the current Covid-19 pandemic situation permits.
Eureka also said that team is working on to make the next season even more fun and to show more diverse cultures and to tell stories to which people can relate more intimately.
The Drag Queen said, “We don’t know where we are in this world. We don’t know what we’re doing next week or tomorrow for that matter. I do know that we are very excited to go back in and safely amplify some queer voices in large small towns”
From all the buzz we can anticipate that the second season will be a massive hit as well.
