Revealed via a teaser trailer, Dungeons and Drag Queens will see regular Dimension 20 dungeon master Brennan Lee Mulligan taking the role of DM for the Queens, with the season taking place in its own unique setting and appearing the focus on the characters’ quest to gain the favour of the goddess of death, in exchange for a boon.

Dimension 20 is an anthology series of actual play show seasons – wherein people are filmed playing a tabletop RPG, such as D&D – some of which are full-on campaigns taking place over many episodes, whilst others are shorter ‘side quests’. Each season features its own cast of players and characters, with every season having its own theme – such as fantasy high school, pirates and horror – with viewers and listeners able to experience each season on its own, as well as part of the entire show.
Dungeons and Drag Queens will be released over four episodes, with the premiere launching on YouTube on June 28th and the remaining episodes releasing via Dropout.tv - a paid subscription service featuring comedy shows like Dimension 20.
