We're starting to wonder if RuPaul ever sleeps. He's currently bringing us RuPaul's Drag Race UK whilst also working on RuPaul's Drag Race Canada, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5 and casting for RuPaul's Drag Race 12.
But is that enough for Mama Ru? Oh, no my squirrel friends. Because now we're getting a RuPaul's Celebrity Drag Race, too.
Yep, VH1 has confirmed that the famous dag competition will be putting 12 US celebs to the test over four episodes in 2020 to see if they have what it takes to be America's Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.
In each episode, three famous stars will be given a complete drag makeover and then compete to win money for a charity of their choice.
We don't currently know the celeb line-up, but they won't be the only recognisable faces, as the show will also bring back some all-star queens to mentor the contestants.
Already confirmed are All-Stars 3 winner Trixie Mattel and Vanessa 'Miss Vanjie' Mateo, Alyssa Edwards, Asia O'Hara, season 8 winner Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, All-Stars 4 co-winners Monét X Change and Trinity the Tuck, Monique Heart, Nina West.
Sharing the exciting news on Instagram, the official Drag Race account teased: "The celebrity-TEA has been spilled!"
Discussing the launch, Ru said: "Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are.
"I can't wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!"
The show will be arriving in the US next year, and we can expect the lineup shortly before it.
It is not yet confirmed how we'll be able to tune in from the UK, but if it follows the same format as previous series of the show, we should expect it on Netflix at around the same time as the US launch. Tyla has contacted Netflix for comment.
Ladies, keep those engines rolling, because we're going to be binging Drag Race for a very long time to come.
