Now that the second season of ‘Drag Race Spain’ has officially ended, it’s a good time to give ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ a taste, if you haven’t yet gotten serious about the show that started the fashion of being able to see drag art on television.
The thing is more complex than it seems (laugh at the Marvel movies), since it is not enough to watch the seasons in the order in which they came out: if we want not to eat spoilers, we have to intersperse seasons of ‘All Stars ‘, because it is usual to make references to previous winners and it’s easy to spoil those other seasons if they are not seen in the order of issue.
Thus, although each season is independent, there are references and inside jokes that are lost if the above is not known. If you want to fully immerse yourself in the ‘Drag Race’ experience, this is the order to follow and the platforms where you can find everything.
From the beginning
Obviously we would start with that wonderfully crappy first season from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ that was the origin of everything, back in 2009. The order would be as follows:
- Seasons 1-2-3-4 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 1 of ‘All Stars’
- Seasons 5, 6, 7 and 8 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 2 of ‘All Stars’
- Season 9 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 3 of ‘All Stars’
- Season 10 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 4 of ‘All Stars’
- Seasons 11 and 12 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 5 of ‘All Stars’
- Season 13 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
- Season 6 of ‘All Stars’
- Season 14 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
coffee for coffee growers
Now if you want to curl the curl, you have all “derived” series of the parent program. really here it is not so important to follow the order (more than anything, because they are hardly referred to in the original) but there it is, in case someone wants to do the route.
season 1 of ‘Drag Race UK’ aired just before season 11, season 2 would follow season 13, and then season 3. Season 1 of ‘Drag Race Holland’ Y ‘Drag Race Canada’ aired after ‘All Stars’ 5th. Season 2 of the Dutch version would follow Season 6 of ‘All Stars’ and then Season 2 of the Canadian version. season 1 of ‘Drag Race Thailand‘ aired between seasons 10 and 11, with season 2 coinciding with season 13.
Finally, ‘Drag Race Spain’ aired its season 1 after season 13, and season 2 after 14. Here we can guarantee that the only references to other contestants are the winner of season 1 of ‘Drag Race Holland’, and visits from contestants from season 3 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and from season 3 of ‘Drag Race UK’.
The thing would be like this:
- Season 1 of ‘Drag Race Thailand’
- Season 1 of ‘Drag Race UK’
- Season 1 of ‘Drag Race Holland’ and ‘Drag Race Canada’
- Season 2 of ‘Drag Race UK’
- Season 2 of ‘Drag Race Thailand’
- Season 1 of ‘Drag Race Spain’
- Season 2 of ‘Drag Race Holland’
- Season 2 of ‘Drag Race Canada’
- Season 3 of ‘Drag Race UK’
- Season 2 of ‘Drag Race Spain’
Where to see it?
The first 13 seasons of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and the last 3 of ‘All Stars’ they are all on Netflix, which has the international license even if it is not an original production of theirs.
‘Drag Race Spain’ yes it is an original program of ‘Atresplayer Premium’, where there is also a lot of extra content and even the official tour to be able to take a look at it.
But if there is a place to see (almost) every ‘Drag Race’ show, both the main one and its derivatives, is WOW Present+. It is also possible to contract OUT TV from Amazon Prime Video, where you can see the first 3 seasons of ‘All Stars’ and the second from Thailand.
Personally, I do recommend watching even if it’s just the original show in order, along with the ‘All Stars’ shows so you don’t miss a wink. Although what has been said, if you do not mind much that winners of other editions advance you, it is not strictly necessary either. Of course, we must not go out of our way to see each and every one of the derived editions because, if not, we could easily spend more than a year watching only ‘Drag Race’ programs.
