Do you all remember that show where Ru Paul looks for the next drag queen? The show originally airs on the Logo channel but VH1 aired reruns of the 1st season. Well now the show is back for season 2 and VH1 will again begin airing reruns of it soon.
Legendary drag icon RuPaul will once again search for America’s next drag superstar when the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race hits airwaves next week. It’s set to premiere on Logo on Monday, Feb. 1 at 9/8c, and each week will rerun on VH1 the following Tuesday at 9/8c (starting Tuesday, Feb. 2). You can check video previews at Logo’s site and some more info on the show (courtesy of the press release) below:
Gentlemen, start your engines! May the best woman win!” After much critical acclaim and widespread popularity, Logo’s hit reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race has returned for a second season.
