Since premiering, Drag Race México has become a hit. Though the first season is continuing to air, it appears that the Mexican spin-off of RuPaul’s Drag Race has already gotten the greenlight for the next season.

Back in June, Drag Race México became the second Latine spin-off of RuPaul’s beloved drag competition. In 2015, The Switch Drag Race, Chile’s spin-off in the franchise, ran briefly for two seasons. In the past few weeks, its Mexican counterpart has gone from 11 competitors competing for the title of “Mexico’s Next Drag Superstar” to six drag queens remaining. Valentina and Lolita Banana are currently co-hosting the first season.

Though the search for the first winner of Drag Race México is still underway, the franchise’s production company World of Wonder seemingly confirmed that season two will be happening. Though an official announcement hasn’t been made about the status of the show, a casting call was put out for Drag Race México.

Any Mexican drag queens who want to compete to be “Mexico’s Next Drag Superstar” have until Aug. 30 to submit their casting tape. According to the flyer, the person auditioning must speak Spanish and be either a citizen or a legal resident of Mexico.

The drag queens who still have a chance of becoming the first winner of Drag Race México include Margaret y Ya, Matraka, and Lady Kero. Cristian Peralta, Regina Voce, and Gala Varo, who are a part of the “Estelares” clique, are also still in the running.

A third Latine franchise will be coming soon with Drag Race Brazil. The first winner of Queen of the Universe, Grag Queen, will serve as the host of the Brazilian version of the show. Regina Voce actually competed against her in the drag singing competition. Mexican drag queen Taiga Brava became the second person to win Queen of the Universe earlier this year.
