VH1 has announced a special RuPaul’s Drag Race documentary, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Corona Can’t Keep A Good Queen Down. The special episode, airing Feb. 26 at 8 p.m., will chronicle how the iconic show taped its 13th season during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The official description: The stand-alone documentary captures the raw emotions surrounding the extraordinary experience; from the combination of hope and anxiety of the early days, to creative challenges prepping and executing the show, and an ultimate sense of celebration and gratitude. In the face of a global pandemic that shutdown film and television production around the world, the resilience and ingenuity of this season’s queens made herstory as one of the very first productions to be shot in the age of COVID-19. RuPaul’s Drag Race: Corona Can’t Keep A Good Queen Down features vulnerable interviews with the queens, never-before-seen footage, casting reels, and striking photography from set.
The episode will air in place of the weekly regular episode and new episodes will resume on March 5.
The Season 13 cast includes Denali (Chicago, IL), Elliott with 2 Ts (Las Vegas, NV), Gottmik (Los Angeles, CA), Joey Jay (Phoenix, AZ), Kahmora Hall (Chicago, IL), Kandy Muse (New York, NY), LaLa Ri (Atlanta, GA), Olivia Lux (New York, NY), Rosé (New York, NY), Symone (Los Angeles, CA), Tamisha Iman (Atlanta, GA), Tina Burner (New York, NY), and Utica Queen (Minneapolis, MN).
