After amassing highly positive reviews and strong viewership for the cable network, Nina Rosenstein, Executive Vice President of HBO Programming, has announced HBO has greenlit a second season of the six-part docuseries We’re Here.
“We’re Here resonates in ways we had hoped for but couldn’t really have anticipated,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “The stories of our small-town drag daughters created an incredibly positive communal experience. We can’t wait for Bob, Shangela and Eureka to continue their journey helping others find their voice.”
The series’ six-episode first season debuted April 23 on HBO, and starred renowned drag queens Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela Laquifa Wadley as they traveled to small towns across America, inspiring local residents to share their stories and express themselves in a night of no-holds-barred, full-on drag.
Season one towns included Gettysburg, PA, Twin Falls, ID, Branson, MO, Farmington, NM, and Ruston, LA. The season finale aired this week with a dive into the queens’ own stories of struggle and perseverance, ending with a celebration of love and taking pride in oneself.
We’re Here is created by Stephen Warren and Johnnie Ingram and directed by Peter LoGreco, who executive produced alongside Warren, Ingram, and Eli Holzman & Aaron Saidman for Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation. Caldwell Tidicue (Bob the Drag Queen), David Huggard (Eureka O’Hara) and D.J. Pierce (Shangela Laquifa Wadley) served as consulting producers.
The series is available to stream on HBO GO, HBO NOW, and on HBO via HBO Max and other partners’ platforms.
