Each of the four episodes will feature a trio of stars competing for best drag transformation.

They'll be helped by past contestants from the Emmy-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race" and his all-star series, including winners Monet X Change, Bob the Drag Queen, and Trixie Mattel.

“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” RuPaul said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”

The celebrity contestants, whose prize money will be donated to a charity they pick, have yet to be announced.

Plenty of fans were super excited by the news with one even calling the announcement “reality heaven”.

“My life can never have too much RuPaul or drag queens,” another shared on Twitter.
