by Devon Thomas  |  03.02.2017

Viacom unleashed a teaser for the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race which will move from Logo to VH1 beginning Friday, March 24.

The switch comes as Viacom tries to boost the audience of the long-running Logo competition series, said Viacom in a statement. The show will not leave Logo entirely—encore episodes will air on the Logo network.

In the clip, a new cast of contestants appear, along with a sneak peek of singer Lady Gaga appearing as a guest judge in season-nine.

The network also announced that Logo is running an exclusive “Race To The Nines” marathon with all preceding seasons of the show, beginning March 19 at 8 p.m. ET. The marathon will also feature all-new bonus content, including cut footage and interviews with superfans, judges, and contestants.

RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres Friday, March 24 at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
