Come on Season 10, let’s get sickening.
With Ru Paul’s Drag Race doing better than ever in the ratings, it’s no surprise that VH1 have renewed the now-iconic talent show for yet another season.
The search for America’s next drag superstar looks set to continue. Set to air in March 2018, the show will be back for a TENTH season, with Queen of Drag Ru Paul at the helm of the show yet again.
2018 will also mark ten years of the show, which has been delighting audiences and launching careers since it’s inception. In a statement issued this week, Ru Paul said: “As we celebrate a Decade of Drag, we’ll continue to tell universal stories of the tenacity of the human spirit.”
“Now more than ever, we rely on the power of love, laughter and creativity to combat fear and darkness.”
It’s expected that the current judging panel – comprised of Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews – will be joining Ru for Season 10.
Since it’s move to VH1, the show has beaten its ratings record, with guest appearances from Lady Gaga, Kesha and Lisa Kudrow thrilling contestants and fans alike.
And with Ru receiving an Emmy for his work on the show last year, it seems like Hollywood has finally woken up to the sheer brilliance of this series, too.
The show has also started releasing episodes to Netflix UK a day after transmission in the US, leaving UK fans well and truly gagged.
“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.”
