EMMY(R) AWARD-WINNING "RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE" RETURNS FOR A MILESTONE 10TH SEASON ON THURSDAY, MARCH 22 FOLLOWED BY AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF "UNTUCKED"
Full Season of 90-Minute Queen-Sized Episodes
New York, NY - February 16, 2018 - On the heels of VH1's industry leading ten consecutive quarters of YoY ratings growth (P18-49) - the best streak across broadcast and cable - and following the three-time Emmy(R) Award-winning season nine of "RuPaul's Drag Race," the fiercest competition on primetime returns with a historic 10th season. Each supersized, 90-minute episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will give fans more fashion, lip-syncs and drag than ever before. The new season premieres on VH1 on Thursday, March 22, followed by the popular, Emmy(R) Award-nominated after-show "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked."
"To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we've pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts," said executive producer and two-time Emmy(R) Award-winning host RuPaul. "And I'm thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1. 'Cause, henny, if you ain't watching Untucked, you're only getting half the story. Okurrr?"
"RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked" gives viewers an uncensored, behind-the-scenes look at each episode of the main competition. During "Untucked," cameras reveal conversations not seen on the main show as the queens anxiously wait to learn their fate and who will need to lip sync for their life to avoid the week's elimination.
Fans craving more RuPaul can check out "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars," which premiered to record-breaking ratings and is currently airing on Thursdays at 8:00pm ET/PT on VH1. The season follows legendary queens as they return to the mainstage to battle it out for the crown and a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
