NEW YORK, NY - March 1, 2017 - Fridays just got fiercer! For the first time in franchise history, Logo's Emmy(R) Award-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race" will air on VH1 on Friday nights, giving the mega-hit competition series an even broader audience. The season nine premiere featuring Lady Gaga is set for Friday, March 24th at 8:00 PM ET/PT with every tongue-popping lip sync showdown and runway challenge. New episodes of "Drag Race" will have encores on Logo.

"Coming off RuPaul's Emmy win and a ratings record-breaking season of 'All Stars,' the fandom around 'RuPaul's Drag Race' has only continued to swell as we head into season nine," said Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming & Development at Logo. "Broadcasting the show on VH1 will allow more fans to experience the energy, heart and talent these fierce Queens bring to the stage every week."

To celebrate the gag-worthy new season, Logo will exclusively air a 'Race to the Nines' marathon of non-stop episodes beginning on Sunday, March 19th at 8:00 PM ET/PT leading up to VH1's season nine premiere on Friday, March 24th at 8:00 PM ET/PT. Throughout the five day marathon, viewers will be treated to all-new bonus content including never before seen footage from the cutting room floor and interviews with previous contestants, judges and super fans including Michelle Visage, Bob the Drag Queen, Ginger Minj, Jujubee, Todrick Hall, and Lance Bass who will spill all of the "T" on the new queens.

The 'Race to the Nines' series marathon leads into the season nine premiere extravaganza that will feature Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga, and a shocking opening that will go down as one of the most jaw-dropping moments in "Drag Race" herstory. Additionally, it will unveil 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 watercooler moments as these talented ladies of drag join the fabulous 100 Queens who fought for the crown before them.

The 13 previously announced Queens include: Aja (Brooklyn, NY), Alexis Michelle (New York, NY), Charlie Hides (London, UK), Eureka (Johnson City, TN) Farrah Moan (Las Vegas, NV), Jaymes Mansfield (Madison, WI), Kimora Blac (Las Vegas, NV), Nina Bo'nina Brown (Atlanta, GA), Peppermint (New York, NY), Sasha Velour (Brooklyn, NY), Shea Couleé (Chicago, IL), Trinity Taylor (Orlando, FL), and Valentina (Los Angeles, CA).

"RuPaul's Drag Race" season nine is produced by World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Steven Corfe, Mandy Salangsang and RuPaul Charles serving as Executive Producers. Tim Palazzola serves as Executive Producer for Logo.
