RuPaul's Drag Race returning for season 9
Logo also announces 'Fire Island,' new docuseries from Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
RuPaul’s Drag Race is officially bringing in a new batch of queens for season 9.
Logo has renewed the Emmy-nominated competition series for a ninth season, and the network also is announcing a new series from producers Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos.
Last season of the hit competition show brought Logo its highest ratings to date. “Season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be bigger, better and more twisted than ever,” said RuPaul in a statement. “Thank you Logo for continuing to provide a powerful platform for these brave, gorgeous, and creative souls to tell their stories.”
Joining the Logo lineup is Fire Island, produced by Ripa and Consuelos. The docuseries will follow young New York professionals who jettison off to the sun-soaked oasis of “Fire Island Pines,” where they share a home and discover adventure.
Logo previously announced the new reality dating competition series Finding Prince Charming, hosted by Lance Bass.
Fans can also catch the RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race season 2 premiere on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
