RuPaul’s Drag Race is gearing up to air Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars starting next week, bringing back some fierce and loyal queens to compete against one another. But hardcore fans are wondering when Season 11 is coming back to VH1 with brand new drag superstars to compete against one another.

While both RuPaul and VH1 have confirmed that Season 11 will happen, neither have talked about a possible premiere date. But now that All Stars is taking over December and January, it’s possible that Season 11 will follow shortly after, sometime in March or April.

RuPaul’s Drag Race moved from Logo to VH1 a few years ago, and since the move, the airing of the show has been more consistent. In the past, fans had no idea when the show would come back – or if it even would come back. Now, VH1 seems to put it in the spring, airing in March over the past few years.

Since the move to VH1, the show also appears to have seen a rating boost, according to Bustle. While All-Stars 2 managed to get around 500,000 viewers per episode, All-Stars 3 managed to get around 750,000 viewers per episode, making it the highest-rated cable program in its Friday night timeslot.

VH1 has yet to announce the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11, but Gay Times did some digging into some popular drag queens around the country and found a list of drag queens, whose social media accounts were inactive at the time of filming earlier this year.

We can’t confirm that any of them are competing, but it will be exciting to see some fresh faces on the upcoming season of the show.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 is expected to premiere in the spring of 2019.
