RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars will sashay onto Showtime this summer

The show will premiere in time for Pride month in June

While remaining a firm fixture on our screens, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is sashaying away from VH1 to another channel, Showtime, with a premiere date of June 5  – just in time for Pride month. 

The fifth season of All Stars will follow the usual format, welcoming back fan favourite queens from past seasons of Drag Race for a second chance to earn the crown, win a cash prize of $100,000, and leave their legacy in the “Drag Hall of Fame”. Expect more sickening lipsync battles, gagworthy lewks, and of course, plenty of shady moments that’ll snatch you bald and leave you gasping for air. 

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is a culture-defining show that fits perfectly within the contemporary programming Showtime offers in both scripted and unscripted,” Showtime entertainment president Jana Winograde said in a statement. “We are excited to take advantage of our relationship with our new sister company VH1 to present a special edition of this sensational series and bring in this passionate and robust fanbase.”

If you can’t wait until June, Mama Ru has got you covered: season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race – with guest judges including Nicki Minaj, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Robyn, Normani, Winnie Harlow, and Jeff Goldblum – is still set to air on VH1 February 28. 

“This was absolutely, 100 per cent a peak experience,” wrote Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter. “I am SO excited for the new season.”

While the line-up for All Stars is yet to be announced, get acquainted with the stars of season 12 – including Crystal Methyd, Heidi N Closet, Dahlia Sin, Aiden Zhane and Gigi Goode – in a star-spangled reveal video which sees them pledging allegiance to the drag.
