The current season has been the most watched in franchise history
RuPaul’s Drag Race continues to dazzle. VH1 announced on Wednesday that it is renewing the reality competition series for a new season, along with the aftershow RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. The renewal shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, considering the still-ongoing season 10 has been the most-watched in franchise history.
“After 10 sickening seasons, the Drag Race phenomenon is just getting started,” host RuPaul Charles said in a statement. “I want to thank VH1 for providing this amazing platform for a whole new generation of super talented drag queens.”
“We are thrilled that Drag Race will continue to lead the conversation of inclusion and diversity as the show embarks on its eleventh season,” VH1 executive Pamela Post added. “It’s unprecedented for a show to continue to grow on the scale that Drag Race has, and it’s just the beginning.”
Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race has broken viewership records for the franchise, across both Drag Race proper and All-Stars. With just four queens left, this week’s episode will feature the contestants writing and performing a verse of RuPaul’s single “American” as the show builds up to the season 10 finale on June 28. Untucked will continue to air after every episode, featuring backstage banter between the queens as they await results.
