RuPaul’s Drag Race Guest Judge Sarah Michelle Gellar Slays the Runway in Season 16 Trailer — Watch

The word “slay” is thrown around a lot on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but it’s about to take on a whole new meaning in Season 16. As revealed in MTV’s just-released trailer, Sarah Michelle Gellar (aka Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself!) is among the extra-special guest judges visiting the main stage in 2024.

Drag Race‘s two-part Season 16 premiere kicks off on Friday, Jan. 5 (8/7c) with guest judge Charlize Theron, while singer Becky G will join the judges’ panel for Part 2 on Friday, Jan. 12.

Additional Season 16 guest judges include: director Adam Shankman, music duo Icona Pop, designer Isaac Mizrahi (Project Runway), choreographer Jamal Sims, Joel Kim Booster (Fire Island), Kaia Gerber (American Horror Story), country singer Kelsea Ballerini, Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer), designer Law Roach (Legendary), Mayan Lopez (Lopez vs. Lopez) and journalist Ronan Farrow.

Seated beside RuPaul, this season’s mainstay judges are Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews and Ts Madison.

Earlier this week, MTV revealed the 14 queens competing in Season 16, including several with familial connections to past contestants. The cast includes the sister of Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté (Season 14) and the daughter of Kandy Muse (Season 13, All Stars 8).

You don’t know these names yet, but you’ll meet them soon: Amanda Tori Meating, Dawn, Geneva Karr, Hershii LiqCour-Jeté, Megami, Mhi’ya Iman LePaige, Mirage, Morphine Love Dion, Nymphia Wind, Plane Jane, Plasma, Q, Sapphira, Cristál and Xunami Muse.

And because Drag Race loves a twist, the premiere event — a talent show, of course — will introduce “Rate-a-Queen,” in which the power will be turned over to the contestants. And things will get messy.
