    As there was a bit of chat about it elsewhere - Drag Race Holland, coming September 18th to Videoland (in The Netherlands) and WOWPresents+ (elsewhere). The queens haven't been revealed yet, but here's a quick trailer featuring the host:

    I'd go for a WOW subscription if I could get it on my main TV, but I'm much less inclined to pay to watch it on a tablet.

    You can if you have Apple TV or Chrome cast or whatever the android version is called.

    I've got a smart TV, but it doesn't have a WOW app. And I already have an amazon firestick, which I don't think supports it, either. I'm not inclined to buy something else and then pay a subscription on top.

    From that picture I would never guess it's not a US season.

    And why Holland and not The Netherlands?

    Presumably they want it to catch on internationally and are fully aware of how people refer to the country.

    The Dutch tourist board’s website is holland.com.

    That cast photo! I like the Doctor Manhattan looking one. The guy in the middle didn’t even try.

    I know it’s the Dutch flag but I really think Red White and Blue is a pretty awful colour combination for an outfit

    The Dutch Brian Dowling might wear thin rather than wear it well, but the harder it is to understand him until a recognisable catchphrase comes out his mouth the more I could get on board.

    As much as I’ve enjoyed the current string of US12, AS5 and CDR, I did have a pang of relief. but maybe I always feel I have to watch it all live so I don’t get spoilers.

    That said, I was about to start Thailand

    I will definitely watch this. Eventually.

    Mildly put off by the clunky way they ended the video - 'who will be Holland's first next drag superstar'.

    the drag scene in this country is tragically white and also generally tragic so sub-zero interest in this

    also confused about why it's called Drag Race HOLLAND - nobody in the Netherlands recognises Holland as a name for the country anymore

    There is more English than I would have expected, if they were able to cut a trailer without subtitles at all.

    You know I was surprised to see the host in drag at the end :D I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that he could be a drag queen

    APPARENTLY Nicky (Tutorials) is a judge but that might just be gay Instagram saying “OK who do we know who’s Dutch”

    Apart from Thorgy's Drag Grandmother thing, that just looks so homogenous. The irony given what this show should be. It does look a little bit more expensive than the Canadian one though. Letting the variants go off the leash and do their own thing ought to be the goal of these and neither the UK or Canada did this fully (and arguably were at their best when they broke free from the usual familiar set ups and dialogue).

    i felt like that too, but there is a colour theme for the promo shoots that didn’t exactly serve the S12 cast with the same brief.

    I was very nonplussed at the Meet the Queens for Canada, but that turned out alright

    I have the first episode.

    However, it is not subbed. I do have a link for the subs but that would mean that you would have to download the episode and the subs rather than watch it streaming. Unless, of course, you speak Dutch!

    Links deleted - See below...

    How do you view the subbed download? The files download in seconds, but they just open as code for me.

    You have to download the episode and the subs, then add the subs to the episode.

    Whatever you are viewing the episode through (VLC, media viewer, etc) should have an option to play subs. The sub srt file should have the same name as the episode, then just choose English and you're done.

    I'm not sure that I'm explaining it well. Perhaps somebody with more technical knowhow than me could explain it better?

    Well, what I've been doing with your links is uploading them privately to YouTube and watching them on TV that way. I'll give the subtitles add-on a bash before I throw my Solid HarmoniE CD1&2s out the window.

    Because that all seems like a bit of a faff, I hardcoded the subs and uploaded the file myself.

    So, here it is again with hardcoded subs this time...

    Thanks @Rula Lenska

    Really enjoyed episode 1. Thorgys drag grandmother was one of my favourites but the bitch is only 26!? WTF

    Also bit of a Lackluster Lip sync wasn’t it?
