“How could we not be involved in a show as fun and iconic as RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under?” the Irwins told EW in a joint statement.
“We're big fans and were chuffed to help kick off the new season, especially after Art Simone's hilarious Snatch Game impersonation last year! We can't wait to see how all our Down Under kanga-rus go this season."
Meanwhile Lawless opened up about what she thought about this season’s fierce competition.
"Of course, I know a thing or two about being a warrior princess but these new queens are absolutely next level. So fierce and so fabulous, I was in complete awe and am really looking forward to seeing how they all go!"
The entire cast of queens was released earlier this month. The contestants range from Sydney drag scene royalty to a Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameo queen.
This season includes Aubrey Haive, Beverly Kills, Hannah Conda, Faúx Fúr, Kween Kong, Minnie Cooper, Molly Poppinz, Pomara Fifth, Spankie Jackzon, and Yuri Guaii.
The fabulous guest judges will be joining returning permanent judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, and comedian Rhys Nicholson on episode 1, with Lawless appearing on the episode 2 judging table.
