HBO's Emmy(R)-Nominated Unscripted Series WE'RE HERE Returns October 11

The Emmy(R)-nominated unscripted series WE'RE HERE returns for its eight-episode, second season MONDAY, OCTOBER 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Episodes will debut weekly on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

Debuting on National Coming Out Day, this season follows renowned drag queens Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O'Hara and Shangela as they continue their journey spreading love and connection across small-town America, through the art of drag. As the queens recruit local residents from Spartanburg, SC, Temecula, CA, Del Rio, TX, Selma, AL, Evansville, IN, Watertown, SD, Kona, HI, and Grand Junction, CO to participate in one-night-only drag shows, they inspire their "drag daughters" to express their genuine selves in front of their families, friends and communities.

Described by Salon as "a show about loving - truly loving - your neighbor," the first season was lauded as "genuinely moving" by the New York Times, and "pitch-perfect" by Entertainment Weekly.

Season 2 episodes include:

Season 2, Episode 1: "Spartanburg, South Carolina"

Debuts: MONDAY, OCTOBER 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

A year after their first visit was cut short due to the pandemic, Shangela, Bob, and Eureka return to Spartanburg, SC to catch up with Noah, who grapples with gender expression; plus-size lesbian model Faith; and Olin, who wants to bring his family together by walking in his brother's shoes - literally.

Directed by Peter LoGreco.

Season 2, Episode 2: "Temecula, California"

Debuts: MONDAY, OCTOBER 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

In the Southern California town of Temecula, Bob, Eureka, and Shangela work with James, an often misgendered trans man navigating neurodiversity; Jake, his faith influencer mom Michelle, and his partner Brad; and Andrei, a cheerleader whose move back home finds him longing for his mother's acceptance.

Directed by Peter LoGreco.

Season 2, Episode 3: "Del Rio, Texas"

Debuts: MONDAY, OCTOBER 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

Pride Month proves the perfect opportunity for Bob, Eureka, and Shangela to visit the border town of Del Rio, Texas. There, the queens celebrate gay identifying mayor Bruno Lozano's positive impact on the community, Joey's identity quest, and Esael's coming out journey.

Directed by Peter LoGreco.

Season 2, Episode 4: "Selma, Alabama"

Debuts: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

Bob, Eureka, and Shangela bring drag to Selma, AL, where the queer community remains hidden despite the city's historical significance to the civil rights movement. There, they help recently transitioned Akeelah find the confidence to live life beyond closed doors, release Joseph's deep-seated pain, and encourage Deborah to prioritize herself for a change.

Directed by Peter LoGreco.

Season 2, Episode 5: "Evansville, Indiana"

Debuts: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

Hoping to open hearts and minds in Evansville, IN, Bob, Eureka, and Shangela help Methodist Pastor Craig promote LGBTQ equality to his congregants, inspire Tunisian refugee Kaïs to celebrate all facets of his identity, and facilitate the long-overdue wedding of civil rights activists Barbara and Yvon.

Directed by Peter LoGreco.
