Before we jump further into details, many of you might be thinking why talk about the fifteenth season when the fourteenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race has not even been released yet? Well, understandably, people are looking more forward to the upcoming season rather than the much later season which is not even confirmed. 

What do we know about RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 14 & 15: Is it confirmed, renewed?

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 release date: When will it premiere?

There are no specific details about the release date or the whole fifteenth season of the popular reality show in particular but there is a high possibility that the show will get renewed for a fifteen season run and if that happens, we can expect to see the new episodes in late 2022 or early 2023. 

Judges, Host & Cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15

As usual, Queen Ru will be the presenter and also serve as a lead judge on the panel and joining Ru on the panel of judges are Michelle Visage, Ross Mathews, and Carson Kressley. Viewers can also expect to see rotating celebrity guest stars on the show. The show makers have not revealed who these celebrity guests are but the show had famous artists like Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Normani, Nicki Minaj, and AOC. So we’re hopeful that season 15 will feature many well-known celebrities as guest judges.

Like every season there will be fourteen participants competing in the show and the winning title will earn a whopping $100,000 and many other benefits aside from winning the cash prize.
