RuPaul's Drag Race is a reality competition series produced by World of Wonder for the Logo TV Network. It is also the subject of this wiki. Drag superstar RuPaul is the host, mentor, main judge and inspiration for this series, which details RuPaul's search for "America's Next Drag Superstar".

The show was greenlit in May 2008 and premiered on February 2, 2009 on Logo in the US. The show has been aired on Australia, Brasil, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latin America, Spain, Sweden, the Philippines and the UK; the streaming service Netflix haves from Season 1 to Season 11 available on their online contents.

There have been eleven seasons to date, four All Stars seasons, and also eleven seasons of Untucked (10 for the regular seasons and 1 for All Stars)

The show was marked as the most watched series on Logo in its first season, and it became the most streamed series ever on during its second.

The title of the show is a play on drag queen and racing, with the title sequence and theme song "Drag Race - Original Theme", both having a "drag racing" theme.

The 9th season of this show moved from the Logo TV Network to VH1, with Logo TV still airing the episodes, but the week after it will originally air on VH1.
