The spirits of some of the most powerful drag monsters to ever (dis)grace the Dragula stage are trapped in the underworld. The Boulets have invited iconic competitors from seasons past to rejoin the ranks and fight for the Titans crown. The returning monsters will compete in a grand championship of drag artistry and shocking physical challenges for a one hundred-thousand-dollar grand prize, the headlining spot on the upcoming world tour, and the first ever Dragula Titans crown and title.
Of course, dragging us to the underworld requires a brand new underworld set (we'd expect nothing less), along with a brand new format, and a season packed with "so many stunning twists and turns that contestants began to affectionately refer to the show as 'Gagula' during filming." The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans may feel like “elevated” compared to a regular season, but The Brothers Boulet have assured us, fans will feel right at home watching the spinoff, calling it, “truly the most compelling content we’ve created to date" now that is saying a lot!
Dracmorda and Swanthula Boulet say, “We are so thrilled to bring back some of our favorite stars from previous seasons of the show for this new series, and we can’t wait for everyone to see the shocking lengths we go to in order to find out who among them is the true Titan of Dragula! The alchemy of combining our favorite judges, challenges, themes, and cast members from previous seasons all in one titanic series is a dream come true for us. We can’t wait for viewers to be blown away by this new format and the incredible artistry our drag monsters have brought to the competition.”
So, who have Drac and Swan summoned for Titans? The drag monsters set to return are Abhora, Astrud Aurelia, Erika Klash, Evah Destruction, HoSo Terra Toma, Kendra Onixxx, Koco Caine, Melissa Befierce, Victoria Elizabeth Black and Yovska. And you know damn well the Boulets do not come to play without an epic guestlist of friends joining the party. We're in for a treat of rotating guest judges from the show’s past and present, including horror icon Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Harvey Guillen (What We Do In The Shadows), Justin Simien (director of Disney’s upcoming Haunted Mansion film), David Dastmalchian (Dune, Suicide Squad), pop metal princess Poppy, drag superstars Alaska and Katya, and horror royalty Joe Bob Briggs (The Last Drive-In), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Jakob’s Wife) to name a few, with surprise guests making unannounced appearances along the way.
