Drag Race fans have more content to look forward to next month. It’s been announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Revue will premiere on VH1 come August 21, 2020.

I mean, let’s be real. Whenever we think we will get a month or two without new Drag Race episodes airing on our TV screens, RuPaul cackles while counting his stacks of money. Sigh! At this point, the world belongs to the Drag Race franchise and we have been kindly allowed to live in it.

The upcoming RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Revue will feature popular queens Yvie Oddly, Miss Vanjie, Naomi Smalls, Asia O’Hara, Derrick Barry, and Kameron Michaels.

The new show will be a six-episode docu-series that follows the queens as they prepare to display their talents at the RuPaul’s Drag Rave Live! residency show. Of course, it will have a whole lot of drama and fun.

Here’s the trailer!

The kiss between Miss Vanjie and Kameron Michaels has, understandably, made the Drag Race fandom go crazy.

RuPaul’s Drag Race: Vegas Revue was produced by World of Wonder, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Danielle King, and RuPaul Charles. While it’s fun to see the queens compete, I’m looking forward to seeing them in actual mega performances worthy of the Las Vegas strip. 

I love drag queens. I always have. They are my heroes and seeing drag queens on stage is such a thrill for me. But seeing this show and seeing these drag queens on stage, it has been a long journey to get to opening night and I am so proud,” RuPaul previously told EW of the Vegas residency show. “I think it checks every box, from the girls who are on stage — the girls who were chosen to be in the debut — to the storyline, which is a narrative that the audience understands because it follows what our show does from beginning to end. And then on top of that, you know, I had never really seen the dancers take their pants off.”

Set your reminders, everyone. The show will premiere on Friday, August 21, 2020, at 8:00 pm on VH1.

While we wait, the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 will air the finale (episode 8) this Friday. The first season of Drag Race Canada will air its fourth episode tonight.

How are you holding up trying to keep up with everything Drag Race? Will you be checking out the upcoming docu-series?
