“We’re all born naked and the rest is drag,” one of the most famous lines from RuPaul’s Drag Race. Not only has the reality TV series shed light on the drag scene, it has also given those who participate in it a platform to show what drag racing really is. Despite AJ and the Queen, RuPaul, you are one heck of a beaming light to the world.
However, things have spiraled down since the pandemic. Of course, with 12 strong seasons to watch, people will be asking for a thirteenth. Well, you’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for any bit of news about the reality TV series. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race!
There’s no better way to get right into it than, well, getting right into it! For years and years, RuPaul’s Drag Race has been one of the series that just had a consistent schedule all throughout––meaning there have been predictable release dates then.
Despite the pandemic, the reality TV series will still be premiering at the beginning of the year and will be serving some killer looks until the summer. VH1 has confirmed that the newest season will premiere on the 1st of January, 2021, at 8 P.M. ET/PT.
RuPaul said that they’ve been following all the needed protocols, also. “Competing safely and fiercely, our 13 queens proved that it takes more than a global pandemic to keep a good queen down,” they said.
You’d be a sinner if you thought RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews, and Carson Kressley won’t be back for the 13th season. As for the celebrity judges, RuPaul’s Drag Race has always surprised audiences with the biggest names. Just last season, they managed to bring in Nicki Minaj, Daisy Ridley, and more to the show!

Alongside Gottmik are Denali, Elliott with 2 T’s, Joey Jay, Kahmora Hall, Kandy Muse, LaLa Ri, Olivia Lux, Rose, Symone, Tamisha Iman, Tina Burner, and Utica Queen.
RuPaul’s Drag Race has revolutionized TV forever. Going 12 seasons strong with one upcoming despite the pandemic, there really is hope for the world to gain even more queens! It has not only given slaying looks, hardcore drama, but a different view on how these queens are more than just the makeup they put on––strong, talented, and beautiful. It doesn’t warrant a conversation about sex and genders because they’re all you need to see to believe and respect the spectrum.
