Hot off the heels of two Emmy nominations and one of the most watched seasons in the show’s history, Logo today announced the season nine renewal of its hit reality series, RuPaul’s Drag Race. Additionally, the network has greenlit docuseries Fire Island to premiere in 2017...
Fire Island is a docuseries following a group of young, NYC professionals who leave behind the stress of their big city lives and escape to the magical sun-soaked oasis that is Fire Island Pines. The series, like a love letter to “the Pines,” highlights the adventures and relationships of friends and lovers as they experience the magic and excitement of the landmark location.
Fire Island is executive produced by Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Milojo Productions along with Albert Bianchini and Lenid Rolov. (We can't help but wonder if there'll be cameos by Kelly's celeb pals like Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper...one can hope, right?)
“Fire Island is an exciting new addition to Logo’s slate and perfectly complements the stories our audience craves,” said Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programing for Logo. “We’re thrilled to give it a home alongside yet another incredible season of intense competition on RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
