Shanté, RuPaul’s Drag Race will stay on Logo TV for another season of sickening looks and withering reads. The reality competition series just picked up two Emmy nominations, including a long overdue one for host RuPaul. Season eight crowned Bob The Drag Queen its queen of queens back in May after fierce competition (is there any other kind?) from Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls, who were just dripping with eleganza. But executive producer RuPaul has said that “season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be bigger, better and more twisted than ever.” (That sounds wonderful, but where is our Katya variety show?!)
The host’s statement also thanked the Logo network for “continuing to provide a powerful platform for these brave, gorgeous and creative souls to tell their stories. They represent the hopes and dreams of all the outsiders around the world.” There’s no premiere date for the new season as of yet, but don’t worry because the second season of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race will kick off in less than a month. The royal rumble premieres August 25 on Logo, when Adore Delano, Katya, Roxxxy Andrews, Tatianna, Phi Phi O’Hara, Ginger Minj, Detox, Alaska, Coco Montrese, and Alyssa Edwards will all take another shot at the crown.
