Get a grip, girl! Latrice Royale is officially joining the Season 4 cast of HBO’s “We’re Here,” Variety can exclusively reveal.
Latrice Royale joins fellow drag artists Priyanka, Sasha Velour and Jaida Essence Hall in leading the new season. “We’re Here” Season 4 will notably see a shift from its original format, which previously saw the queens traveling to new cities in each episode to further share the artform of drag. Now, they will tackle two U.S. towns over the course of six episodes, taking an in-depth look at the local political systems and participants, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and opposition, and their effect on the queer community.

Season 4 marks the first season that Latrice Royale, Priyanka, Sasha Velour and Jaida Essence Hall will take over for Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela, who previously led the series in its first three seasons.
“We’re Here” was created by Stephen Warren and Johnnie Ingram and directed by Peter LoGreco. Executive producers include Warren, Ingram, LoGreco, Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Erin Gamble for Sony Pictures Television’s Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC).
“In this increasingly hostile political climate, we are grateful to HBO for their dedication to telling LGBTQ+ stories that meet the moment and document our history,” said Ingram and Warren in a joint statement. “We are thrilled to expand our drag family and give much-needed love to the people on the front lines of hate.”
Latrice Royale hails as one of the most beloved competitors from the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” universe, having competed on Season 4 of the mainstay season and being named Miss Congeniality, to also competing on “Drag Race All Stars” Season 1 and 4.
