    The Season 9 cast has been announced!

    Intro videos of the queens are available also:

    No premiere date yet, just "Spring 2017" so far, which I guess means no earlier than late March. They push it later and later in the year each season...

    While we're waiting for the premiere date...two spinoff shows are coming to Logo: Haus of Edwards, a docuseries with Alyssa Edwards and drag daughter Laganja Estanja (I imagine Shangela will also show up, since she is from the Haus of Edwards), and Detox’s Life Rehab, in which Detox plays a lifehacker character, but the synopsis doesn't see all that clear to me:

    "Untucked" will be on YouTube again this season, on the WOWPresents channel (they produce Drag Race).

    This is also where you can see Raja & Raven's "Fashion Photo RuView", "UNH" with Katya and Trixie Mattel, "Bro'laska" with Alaska and her brother Cory, and of course "Alyssa's Secret" with Alyssa Edwards.

    Each new episode of "Untucked" will premiere the morning after each new Friday TV episode of Drag Race.

    They are taping the finale/reunion tomorrow night (Friday) at the Alex Theatre in Glendale CA.

    They are going to finish the season old-school style, sort of.

    Instead of combining the reunion and finale like they have done since season 4, the sit-down Reunited episode will air by itself on June 16th.

    Then, the winner will be crowned in the Grand Finale (taped with an audience last Friday) in a one-hour show on Friday, June 23rd.

    And it looks like the rumors were true about Matthiu Anderson leaving as Ru's makeup/hair artist for S9, and that Raven (S2 runner-up and All-Star) and Delta Work (S3 contestant) took over doing Ru's hair and make-up...because they are listed as the nominees in these categories!

    Congrats to Raven (nominated as David Petruschin) and Delta (nominated as Gabriel Villarrea)!

    Raven did a Facebook live session (with technical difficulties) about the nomination and what went down this season:
