After being nominated for nine Emmy awards, MTV and Paramount+ have greenlit new seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise as well as RuPaul’s Drag Race: All StarsandUntucked
The tentpole and record-breaking reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race will enter it 16th season with a new group of fabulous queens who will be vying for the crown which Sasha Colby won in season 15.
This past year, in the face of threats and censorship against drag performers and the LGBTQ+ community, the show’s production company, World of Wonder, created the first-ever Drag Defense Fund with a donation from MTV and RuPaul’s Drag Race. The 501C3 supports the ACLU’s work to defend and ensure LGBTQ+ rights, and has already raised over $1.5 million.
RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars: Untucked are produced by World of Wonder Productions.
