Season 1 of RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under was officially announced on August 26, 2019[1]. On January 18, 2021 the official title of the series was announced by RuPaul through World of Wonder's social media. This also confirmed that the show would be airing on WOW Presents Plus, Stan Australia, and TVNZ.[2]

RuPaul will host the show, with Michelle Visage joining Ru on the Judge's Panel. Filming is taking place in Auckland, New Zealand due to the COVID-19 restrictions in Australia[3]. The search for Down Under's First Drag Superstar is going to air in 2021.

According to a video posted on Instagram of Michelle Visage on Stan Australia's account, the cast will be revealed at Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival on Saturday, March 6th. However, hours earlier, the entrances were accidentally leaked, revealing the full cast.
