MTV announced today that RuPaul's Drag Race has been renewed for a 16th season. The news comes on the heels of the 'Drag Race' franchise picking up nine Emmy Award nominations, the most for any reality competition series this year. Its post-show companion series 'Untucked' will also be back.

On the air since 2009, the award-winning series has continued to be a strong performer for the network. The show's 15th season saw it surpass the 200-episode milestone.

Hosted by the titular drag icon, RuPaul's Drag Race sees contestants participate in various challenges, with critiques by a panel of judges, while trying to be the last one standing - and named America's Next Drag Superstar.

Look for Season 16 in early 2024.
