RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is set to return next month, premiering June 24 on Paramount+. Ahead of the upcoming sixth series, we’ve received a first look at the queens returning to our screens from Drag Race seasons past.
Among the record 13 contestants coming back for a chance to leave their legacy in the Drag Hall of Fame are several from Drag Race season 11 — A’Keria C. Davenport, Ra’Jah O’Hara, Scarlet Envy, and Silky Nutmeg Ganache — alongside Kylie Sonique Love, Jiggly Caliente, Serena ChaCha, Trinity K. Bonet, Eureka, and Jan.
For others, season six won’t be their first Drag Race All Stars rodeo, including Ginger Minj (of All Stars season two) and contestants from All Stars’ ill-fated first outing, Pandora Boxx and Yara Sofia.
Paramount+ (which is, controversially, a subscriber-based streaming service) is also set to host Queen of the Universe — a “singing competition like no other” from Drag Race production company World of Wonder — from December 2. The Eurovision-esque show promises to bring together drag queens from across the world, expanding the franchise’s increasingly international reach (via the likes of Drag Race UK, Canada’s Drag Race, Drag Race Thailand, Drag Race Holland, Drag Race España, and Drag Race Down Under).
Earlier this month, fans shared a conspiracy theory that RuPaul wasn’t even present at the filming of Drag Race Down Under, and had instead been green-screened in. The speculation reached such a fever pitch that the show’s Art Simone eventually stepped in “to quash the rumours”.
Take a look at the contestants for Drag Race All Stars season six below.
