9 GIFs That Capture Our Feelings About the New RuPaul Show

This is not a drill, we repeat, this is not a drill! J.J. Abrams is developing a new TV show based on the RuPaul’s Drag Race creator’s life and we. are. amped.

In case you needed a little mid-week pick-me-up, news just dropped that J.J. Abrams (the powerhouse behind AliasStar Wars: The Force Awakens, Westworld and Lost) is developing a new show based on legendary drag icon RuPaul’s life so basically you can all go home now—or, should we say, sashay away. The series is being described as a fictionalized account of the Drag Race creator and host’s time as an eighties club kid on the come-up in NYC and the success that came with the 1993 release of the now-classic single “Supermodel (You Better Work).” The *actual* (drag) queen will executive-produce the half-hour episodes alongside Abrams and, needless to say, we are so here for it. No word yet on when it will premiere but until then, you can get all the RP you need with the new, ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, which premieres March 24 (and will welcome Lady Gaga as a guest judge)—and these nine quintessential Drag Race GIFs that capture our emotions about this special, special news.
