THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
For the past few seasons, Drag Race fans in the UK have been able to watch the cult reality show with ease, thanks to seasons 2-10 all being available to stream on Netflix. But that's all about to change, and soon.
RuPaul's Drag Race is leaving Netflix UK :(
The groundbreaking show, which has built an army of fans worldwide, was propelled into mainstream thanks in part to it's availability on Netflix, which allowed die-hard fans to introduce the show to friends in perfect HD. With the show's production company launching it's own pay-to-stream service, Wow Presents Plus, it's likely that the show might find its new home there - but nothing has been confirmed yet.
When is Drag Race leaving Netflix?
You have until April 30th to get your fill of seasons 2-7 of Drag Race. After that, those seasons will be forced to sashay off Netflix.
Why isn't Drag Race seasons 2-7 on Netflix anymore?
A spokesperson for Netflix told Pink News that these seasons were being removed from the site "due to rights and licensing issues."
Can I still watch Seasons 8, 9 and 10 on Netflix?
For now, yes. The Netflix rep confirmed that later seasons of the show will remain on Netflix, but didn't comment on what might happen with season 11 and onwards.
