Today The Boulet Brothers announced that the wait for season five of their groundbreaking reality competition show The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula is almost over. In fact, its premiere is a holiday treat!
This season The Boulet Brothers promise is going to be the biggest and baddest yet thanks to a brand-new state-of-the-art set, an army of new talented crew members, the most diverse cast in the show’s history. Also the Boulets are taking over the role of series director as well.
“We have created four seasons of the main show at this point, and just wrapped our first all stars season with “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans” spin-off, and we consider all of that part of “Chapter 1” of the Dragula story. With season 5, we are beginning a new and innovative new chapter of the show, and we’ve retooled and updated the format in an incredibly exciting way,” explained Dracmorda in the press release.
“Nobody is going to sail the ship with more passion than us, so we’ve taken over as the show’s directors for season 5, and we’ve brought in some incredibly talented new team members who are really elevating what you will see on screen,” added Swanthula, “We’re going back to basics with the format, and focusing on the competition element of the show, the incredible artists that we’ve cast and the out-of-this-world looks they create each week, and of course, drag artists doing insanely terrifying and shocking physical challenges on tv. This is the best-looking season of the show yet, and I can’t wait for fans to see these new competitors. They are truly the most impressive drag artists I have ever seen on-screen.”
While they aren't ready to spill on the cast quite yet, the all-stars judges panel has been announced. Director Mike Flanagan (Netflix’s Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass, Doctor Sleep), actor David Dastmalchian (Oppenheimer, Dune, Suicide Squad), author Tannanarive Due, writer / director Kevin Smith, musician Jazmin Bean, and Scream star Matthew Lillard (just to name a few). The show will also feature the series’ first recurring judge in the form of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula season 3 winner Landon Cider, and appearances from past season winners and stars including Victoria Elizabeth Black, Dahli, and Koco Caine.
So when does this wicked delight finally arrive? The show will return October 31 on Shudder and AMC+ with new episodes released weekly.
