This may feel all too familiar, considering the fact that I was writing about where to watch RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3 just two months ago, but we're back, back, back again to help you find your dream viewing for RuPaul's Drag Race season 10. Despite All Stars 3 failing to consistently gag us, season ten promises to be legendary—just look at the five NYC drag queens on the board.

The season premiere goes down on Thursday, March 22 at 8pm. Each episode this season will run for 90 minutes, and will be followed by a 30-minute episode of the show’s behind-the-scenes spinoff, Untucked

Here are a few great places to catch Aquaria, Miz Cracker, Dusty Ray Bottoms, Yuhua Hamasaki, Monet X Change (and all of the other contestants) onscreen.
