Logo "ru-veals" season 8 cast of RuPaul's Drag Race

RuPaul is back to light up the runway with the highly anticipated new season of the groundbreaking series, RuPaul's Drag Race.  Logo has revealed the eagerly awaited cast comprised of the nation’s 12 drag elite. The season premiere will mark a drag milestone as it features the 100th episode and 100th drag queen to sashay into the work room. 

 

"This is an amazing time to be producing television," said executive producer RuPaul Charles. "The fact that RuPaul's Drag Race is celebrating its 100th episode is undeniable proof that there is an insatiable hunger for authentic, unfiltered and ribald voices that not only challenge the norm, but help redefine mainstream media."

 

The new season will premiere on Monday, March 7th at 9:00 PM ET/PT with a supersized 90-minute episode that unveils a court of cut-throat Queens each competing to snatch the crown and strut away with a $100,000 cash prize and the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Along the way, they’ll face an unpredictable competition and deliver gag-worthy and jaw-dropping moments as these talented ladies of drag join the fabulous 88 Queens who fought for the crown before them.
