The new season of Dragula is pronounced to be “the biggest and baddest yet”, with an updated, even more spectacular set, new crew members, and the most diverse cast the series has ever featured.

As if that’s not enough icing on the cake, there’s another new development as well: The Boulet Brothers’ are taking over the directing duties. Of course, that’s in addition to their hosting duties, which they always perform oh so well!

On this season of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, Dracmorda and Swanthula continue their search for the next drag super monster. With a cast of all-new competitors and more costumes, makeup, challenges and spine-chilling performances, this may be the best and most over-the-top season of them all.
