Good news, uglies! The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is back and bigger than ever, with Entertainment Weekly revealing the sickening Season 5 cast earlier today.

Season 5 features a wild cast of 11 all-new drag artists from all over the USA and around the world, including monsters from Argentina, China and the UK. EW tells us that Season 5 promises to be “the biggest and baddest yet, boasting a brand-new state-of-the-art set, an army of new talented crew members, the most diverse cast in the show’s history,” with the Boulets taking over at the helm as the show’s directors for the first time in seven years.

In a press statement, Dracmorda and Swanthula expressed their excitement for a new host of freaks:

“With season 5, we are beginning a new and innovative new chapter of the show, and we’ve retooled and updated the format in an incredibly exciting way,” Dracmorda Boulet said in a press statement, while Swanthula added: “We’re going back to basics with the format, and focusing on the competition element of the show, the incredible artists that we’ve cast and the out-of-this-world looks they create each week, and, of course, drag artists doing insanely terrifying and shocking physical challenges on TV. This is the best-looking season of the show yet, and I can’t wait for fans to see these new competitors.”

Since 2016, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula has evolved from humble cult web series into one of the foremost queer competitions on television, highlighting and celebrating the artists who refuse to fit in to the mainstream. Needless to say, we love ’em all over here at FANGORIA – hell, we even had them on the cover once!

The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula season 5 premieres October 31 (when else!?) on AMC+and Shudder. Without further ado, let’s meet this year’s cast of beautiful and bizarre weirdos, with Entertainment Weekly’s photos courtesy of Scott Kirby/AMC+:
