NEW YORK, NY - February 1, 2016 - RuPaul is back to light up the runway with the highly anticipated new season of the groundbreaking series, "RuPaul's Drag Race." Logo revealed the eagerly awaited cast comprised of the nation's 12 drag elite tonight during the "New Now Next Honors."

"This is an amazing time to be producing television," said executive producer RuPaul Charles.

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.
