"RuPaul's Drag Race" will be moving from Logo to VH1 for its upcoming ninth season which premieres March 24.
Logo, which aired the show for eight years, will play a 5-day "Drag Race" marathon, called "Race to the Nines," of past episodes starting March 19 at 8 p.m. ET.
"Coming off RuPaul's Emmy win and a ratings record-breaking season of 'All Stars,' the fandom around 'RuPaul's Drag Race' has only continued to swell as we head into season nine," Logo Senior VP of original programming and development Pamela Post said in a statement.
"Broadcasting the show on VH1 will allow more fans to experience the energy, heart and talent these fierce Queens bring to the stage every week."
