‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Renewed For Season 5

Logo has renewed its flagship series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, for a fifth season. Auditions are already under way for a premiere in early 2013. The current season of the reality series posted the most watched series premiere in Logo’s history with nearly one million viewers. “I live for drag and to witness the excitement surrounding the success of our show, takes my breath away!,” RuPaul said. RuPaul’s Drag Race is produced by World of Wonder Prods., with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and RuPaul Charles executive producing.

  • So I guess this is separate from the previously announced “all-stars” season? I guess All-Stars will air this fall/late summer, when “RuPaul’s Drag U” would normally air?

  • How “RPDR” doesn’t earn Emmy nods for makeup and hairstyling (for RuPaul and the other judges) is a real puzzler. She deserves a reality-host nomination, too.

  • I like Latrice Roale & I want to see her back , send Sharon home & bring Latrice back , Ru , I watch your show all the time please bring Latrice back she made your show funny in my opinion.

    • In my opinion, Latrice is a great drag queen, and I do love her but I am glad that my girl Sharon Needles won because she deserves it. Sharon brings something new in the drag world that you don’t see most drag queens do and that is what I love about Sharon, she was a perfect queen to win.

  • Good Morning,

    I just love the show. I never miss an epsiode. I am going for Chad Michael, (she is goregous)I wanted latrice but she was elminated. Phi Phi needs to grow up before she becomes a queen. Sharon is a sincere person but her style is not what any real women would like to look (except in Halloween). I would like to know what exactly did willem do get booted out. She was cute too, a little full of herself. I never did see any of her movies :( I love you Ru, I would love to look like you, your flawless. God bless..

  • Love Love Love the show. I am so glad to see Chad Michaels and her look. I really really love all of you. Latrice- you go girl, you made me cry when you left the show… I love your show Ru. God Bless you all bitches I wish you all could win. Cum to Charlotte, NC!!!!! We would love you see all of you!!!! This is the Best season by far. I’m a married 26 year old female and I just think this world is so distasteful and sad and judgemental to the extreme. I have always loved drag but honestly I hope this show has opened up some peoples eyes to accecpt the way you bitches are…. Beautiful.
    Love, Cassandra
