Katya’s drag hiatus is over. She made the announcement on social media tweeting, “The Bitch is Back” along with a gif of Catwoman.

She also revealed that she plans to rename her stage show because she’s in a better place mentally.

“My stage show ‘Help Me I’m Dying’ will likely be re-titled, mostly due to the fact that I am no longer dying. I can’t wait for you to see it. It is going to be incredible and I am quite sure you will all love it. Peace,” Katya tweeted.

Katya, real name Brian McCook, told fans drag was being put on hold for mental health reasons in January. The ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum has been open about her struggles with anxiety and drug addiction in the past.

“I don’t have a drug crisis right now, because I’m sober. I’m taking care of myself today. And that is the reason why I’m happy. But I need to choose carefully the projects that will not, you understand,” McCook said in an Instagram Live.

She stepped down as co-host of “The Trixie & Katya Show” on Viceland with Bob The Drag Queen filling in for the remainder of the season. No word when Katya will return to the show.

Fans were ecstatic for Katya’s return which happened sooner than some expected.

Katya’s already gotten back to work behind the scenes announcing a new podcast, “Whimsically Volatile.”
