Season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race might be coming to a close in the coming weeks, but keep those engines purring - because season 11 is officially coming!

The Emmy-winning TV phenomenon has (unsurprisingly, it's gotta be said) been renewed by VH1 for an 11th season, expected to air in 2019 - and its ever-drama-filled half-hour aftershow, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked will also be returning.

The news comes after season 10 of Drag Race became the most-watched season in the show's her-story, having debuted on Logo in 2009 before moving to VH1 for season nine last year.

“After 10 sickening seasons, the Drag Race phenomenon is just getting started,” RuPaul said in a statement on Wednesday (June 13).

“I want to thank VH1 for providing this amazing platform for a whole new generation of super talented drag queens."

Pamela Post, Senior VP Original Programming and Development at VH1, added: “We are thrilled that Drag Race will continue to lead the conversation of inclusion and diversity as the show embarks on its 11th season.

“It’s unprecedented for a show to continue to grow on the scale that Drag Race has, and it’s just the beginning.”

Drag Race season 10 continues tonight (June 14) on VH1 in the US, and in the UK on Netflix from tomorrow (June 15), where viewers will see queens Kameron Michaels, Asia O'Hara, Aquaria anmd Eureka battle it out for a spot in the grand final, set to air later this month.
