All the poo from the press release:
NEW YORK – September 12, 2022 – Just in time for the scariest month of the year, drag legends The Boulet Brothers and Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streamer for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, announced today a new spin-off series, “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans.” Based on the popular competition reality show “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula,” the series will debut with a two-episode premiere on Tuesday, October 25 on Shudder and AMC+ with subsequent episodes rolling out weekly. Key art and new imagery have also been released for the upcoming series.
Hosted and created by “horror’s new icons” (Fangoria) the Boulet Brothers, “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans” will be a ten-episode spin-off series starring some of the most popular drag icons from the show’s previous seasons competing 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.
While fans of the series will feel right at home watching this spin-off, “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans” offers a new format that promises a haunted mansion full of shocking twists and turns that take place in a brand-new “underworld” set that was built just for the season.
“The Boulet Brothers and our previous ‘Dragula’ series have attracted a wonderfully passionate, engaged and diverse fanbase and we’re delighted to bring them even more of the content they crave with this next competition series, especially during our biggest, most celebrated month of the year,” said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder.
Along with returning fan favorite competitors (to be announced at a later date), there will also be a rotating cast of 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 (“Last Drive In”), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun) and Barbara Crampton (Reanimator, Jakob’s Wife) to name a few, with surprise guests making unannounced appearances along the way.
The Boulet Brothers have become the go-to source for horror commentary in the pop culture zeitgeist. The Boulet Brothers are entrepreneurial multi-hyphenates who have their claws in all aspects of their creative projects, be it in the writing, artistic vision, illustration, music production, costume design, logistical coordination or business affairs.
