Hurricane season is back!

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio is ready to reprise her role as Richard Martinez in the third installment of Hurricane Bianca: The Roots Of All Evil.

That's right! Bianca Del Rio will return to the franchise with Rachel Dratch, Doug Plaut, and Willam Belli, alongside new additions Thora Birch and Vanessa "Miss Vanjie" Mateoanessa "Miss Vanjie" Mateo.

In this film, Bianca (as Richard Martinez) returns home to Florida for his grandmother’s funeral. The official description reads, "He is lured back into a decades-old feud with his mother who owns a homophobic fast-food chain restaurant, and he decides to go undercover as Bianca Del Rio to put his mother out of business. With the help of his chosen family, he embarks on a hilarious adventure exposing corruption, confronting cults and healing relationships."

Miss Vanjie will play the role of Bianca’s cousin, Antonio.

“I’m so excited to be working with this dream team," said Matt Kugelman, the film's writer and director, in a statement. "Bianca is back! Willam is back! And I am elated to introduce Miss Vanjie into Bianca’s family. These are the funniest people I’ve ever met playing these incredibly lovable characters, and then we get to add the amazing Thora Birch into the mix as we’ve never seen her before: An eccentric villain! I cannot wait to share this adventure with the world!”

Producer Kimberly Montini of Cranium Entertainment added, “Hurricane Bianca fans around the world will be pleased with this hilarious and timely sequel that is both commercially viable and continually stays true to its core messaging and artistic integrity. Today’s audiences are ready to embrace films that bridge the gap between mainstream and LGBTQ markets. The late Ash Christian who produced the first two films, was always a champion of LGBTQ filmmakers and believed in Matt Kugelman’s vision and talent from day one. Ash will be deeply missed during this next journey and he is always with us in spirit.”

The film is in the early production stages and will start shooting early next year. It's not yet clear where the film will be available to watch. The first two are available to stream on Hulu and Amazon Prime.
