Absolutely! By the sounds of things, the 13th series will be sashaying onto our screens pretty soon, along with some other spin off shows.

VH1 announced confirmed that Drag Race would be returning in a statement from Mama Ru herself, saying: “Drag queens have been on the frontlines of many challenging times in our history.”

She added: “RuPaul’s Drag Race 13, All Stars 6, and new seasons of Untucked will offer more opportunities for our queens to rise to the occasion and spread the love.”

When is season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race on TV?

We would usually expect Mama Ru to give us a new series at the start of the year, so there’s a while to wait yet. And that’s without any coronavirus filming delays…

Where can I watch season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race?

When it finally arrives, you’ll be able to watch all of the new episodes on Netflix.

Who are the queens competing in season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race?

We don’t know yet, but casting has now closed, so somewhere a handful of lucky queens are preparing for greatness. We’ll let you know who they are as soon as we find out.

The queens who are about to compete usually go pretty quiet on social media when they’re filming, so we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any clues…

Is there anything different about season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race?

We’re not sure yet. Season 12 finished with a virtual finale after the coronavirus pandemic interrupted filming, and the effects of social distancing could spill over into season 13. This could mean new challenges/a new set or simply a delay to filming.
