Gentlemen, keep those engines running!
After last year’s sickening All Stars 2 and with Season 9 currently breaking ratings records, the Emmy award-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race is returning to VH1 for a herstoric tenth season that is sure to leave no wig un-snatched.
“As we celebrate a Decade of Drag, we’ll continue to tell universal stories of the tenacity of the human spirit,” RuPaul said in a statement about the series’ renewal. “Now more than ever, we rely on the power of love, laughter and creativity to combat fear and darkness.”
Season 9 is already one for the herstory books, pulling out all the stops with special celebrity guests like Lisa Kudrow, The B-52s and Kesha. Nearly one million viewers tuned in for the Gaga-filled premiere, more than doubling last season’s debut.
“It’s been amazing to see the show get its highest season ever on a whole new night on a whole new network,” said Chris McCarthy, President of VH1, MTV and Logo. “We brought in a whole new set of audience that is loving the show.”
Is it too early to start guessing who will be among the queens to sashay into the workroom next season?
Season 10 will premiere in March 2018.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 airs Fridays at 8/7c on VH1.
