Our wigs are officially snatched – RuPaul's Drag Race has been confirmed for another season.

VH1 has ordered season 11 of the show – set to be broadcast in 2019.

"After 10 sickening seasons, the Drag Race phenomenon is just getting started," said RuPaul.

"I want to thank VH1 for providing this amazing platform for a whole new generation of super talented drag queens."

And Pamela Post, who's senior vice president of original programming and development at VH1, added: "We are thrilled that Drag Race will continue to lead the conversation of inclusion and diversity as the show embarks on its 11th season.

"It's unprecedented for a show to continue to grow on the scale that Drag Race has, and it's just the beginning."

The show originally started on Logo in 2009, before moving over to VH1 last year for season 9.

Season 10 has so far become the most-watched series in Drag Race Her-story, so the renewal really didn't come as much of a surprise.

Fans have already been theorising which queens will be sashaying onto our screens in the next series.

There is already a strong rumour that Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, the first to be eliminated from season 10, could be making a grand return Shangela style.

After failing to impress the judges with her Drag On A Dime runway look, she left the show with the now-iconic chant "Miss Vanjie, Miss Vaaaanjie," causing Mama Ru to crack up.

Since then, she's become a meme queen and has been mentioned in almost every episode since.

RuPaul's Drag Race airs on VH1 in the US, with new episodes available on Netflix in the UK.
