We’re Here, the unscripted series which stars RuPaul Drag Race alums Shangela, Eureka O’Hara, and Bob the Drag Queen, has been renewed for a second season.
Created by Stephen Warren and Johnnie Ingram, the show stars the three queens traveling to the Bible Belt and other conservative areas of the country. When they arrive, they give drag makeovers to local LGBTQ and straight residents for a live show that they perform at the end of the week.
“We’re Here resonates in ways we had hoped for but couldn’t really have anticipated,” said executive vice president of HBO programming Nina Rosenstein. “The stories of our small-town drag daughters created an incredibly positive communal experience. We can’t wait for Bob, Shangela, and Eureka to continue their journey helping others find their voice.”
In Season 1 the queens traveled to Gettysburg, PA, Twin Falls, ID, Branson, MO, Farmington, NM, and Ruston, LA. The season finale aired on June 4 and featured the queens’ personal stories that have made them who they are today.
In an interview with Variety, Bob revealed they had many run-ins with police while filming, “We got the cops called on us three times in Branson. They just didn’t like that we were there and they just called the cops on us. We beat it before the cops showed up. We were riding dirty.”
