If you can’t wait to see which queen will be next, you may want to know how to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race online for free to see which contestants will make it to the end and which will be cut along the way.

RuPaul’s Drag Race premiered in 2009. The show—which has run for more than a dozen seasons and produced spinoffs around the world—follows host RuPaul‘s search for “America’s next drag superstar.” Each week, the contestants are given different challenges as RuPaul, who also serves as a mentor on the show, and a panel of judges critique their process until one queen is crowned the winner.

Since its premiere more than a decade ago, RuPaul’s Drag Race has launched dozens of spinoffs in the United States and across the world, including RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag U, Drag Race Australia, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and Drag Race Holland. In the U.S., the show is also responsible for launching the careers of drag queens, such as Valentina, Shangela, Bianca Del Rio and Courtney Act, who have created makeup lines, starred in films, sold out tours and released chart-topping albums.

The show has also earned RuPaul six Emmy awards for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program. RuPaul’s Drag Race itself has won the Emmy for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program our times. The show has also been nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Make-up for a Multi-Camera Series or Special (Non-Prosthetic). In 2018, RuPaul’s Drag Race became the first show to win the Emmy for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program and Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program in the same year.
