Another year, a new RuPaul show.

RuPaul Charles is gearing up for yet another series. The history-making Emmy winner is slated to reboot a game show for CBS later this year. This will come in addition to hosting RuPaul's Drag Race, RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars, RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. vs the World, RuPaul's Drag Race U.K., and RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under, which will all air in 2022.

The new show is a reboot of the long-running series Lingo, according to Deadline. Contestants will face off in puzzle rounds where they will guess letters to figure out a word. Each episode will end with a cash prize. The first iteration of the show aired back in 1987.

"We're all ready to have fun again, and Lingo is the answer," Charles said in a release.

Charles, who is expected to appear out of drag, will serve as executive producer in addition to hosting.

This is the latest in a slew of projects for Charles. In addition to the ever-growing Drag Race business, the actor starred in Netflix's AJ and The Queen which was canceled after one season. He also joined the animated upcoming film Ozi as well as the animated movie Hitpig. Back in 2017, Charles announced he was working on a project called Queen, set to dramatize his road to fame in the 1980s.
