Hallå, hallå, hallå! World of Wonder has just announced the premiere date, host and judges for Drag Race Sweden/Sverige. Premiering this March, the highly-anticipated new series joins existing formats in the franchise across Thailand, Chile, Canada, the UK, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Australasia, France, the Philippines, Italy and the US original.
