RuPaul's Drag Race Casting For Season 17

We're two months away from the 16th season of RuPaul's Drag Race, and already the OG franchise is casting for season 17.

On Monday, October 30, World of Wonder shared a video on social media announcing that applications for season 17 can now be officially submitted. “Attention all drag queens, casting for RuPaul’s Drag Race season 17 is happening now,” RuPaul says in the casting call video. “Sickening, no?”

Ru adds, “Who knows? You could be America’s Next Drag Superstar!”

As of this writing, aspiring drag queens can submit their applications to get cast on Drag Race season 17 via But beware, because the casting deadline is much closer than you’d think! While season 17 of Drag Race will likely air in 2025, the final deadline for casting in the season is January 5, 2024 at midnight PST.

Considering the release schedule of recent Drag Race seasons, there’s a chance that this casting deadline for season 17 will arrive before the 16th season of the show even premieres on television. It’s also pretty mind-blowing to think that this LGBTQ+ and drag-centric reality TV competition is on the verge of reaching its 17th year.

As Drag Race superfans, I'm definitely looking forward to which queens will make it on the 17th season. Unfortunately we won't get to see those episodes until 2025 (unless RPDR is planning to air two seasons a year).
