In the show, the three queens travel to the Bible Belt and other conservative pockets of the country. Once there, they give drag makeovers to local LGBTQ and straight residents, in preparation for a live show that they all put on at the end of the week.
News of the renewal was announced by Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president of HBO Programming.
“We’re Here resonates in ways we had hoped for but couldn’t really have anticipated,” said Rosenstein. “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.”
Season 1 of the show saw the trio travel to Gettysburg, PA, Twin Falls, ID, Branson, MO, Farmington, NM, and Ruston, LA. The season finale aired on June 4 and dove into the queens’ own stories of struggle and perseverance, ending with a celebration of love and taking pride in oneself.
