When Does the Next Season of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars’ Premiere?
Fans suffered through BenDeLaCreme’s self-elimination. They saw Katya’s bang “ruveal.” They applauded Naomi Smalls and Gia Gunn’s lip-sync performance. It’s only natural that fans want to know when the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars will premiere. Here’s what we know about the cast and the premiere date of All-Stars 5.
Beware: some RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 11 spoilers ahead!
Season 11 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ just finished
It feels like fans have been watching RuPaul’s Drag Race forever. From All-Stars 4 leading right into Season 11, fans have been watching the show for months now, tuning into VH1 on Thursday nights.
Season 11 contestant Yvie Oddly was crowned “America’s Next Drag Superstar” only a few weeks ago, but fans are already wondering when their favorite drag queens will “ruturn” to the television screen. It is Pride month, after all.
Is there going to be a twelfth season of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race?’
Although RuPaul has not yet confirmed season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, fans are pretty sure it’s happening. The biggest clue is RuPaul’s video, posted in January, announcing the series would be casting for their twelfth season. According to Bustle, fans can expect a new cast of 15 drag queens sometime during 2020.
Aside from a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, rumors speculate that RuPaul already selected the queens to compete on RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars 5. If the rumors are correct and RuPaul films this season during summer 2019, the season should premiere around winter 2019/2020. Until then, fans can binge-watch episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race on VH1’s website.
There are a few alumni fans want to see on ‘All-Stars’
When season 11 contestant, Brooke Lynn Hytes, lost the crown to Yvie Oddly, fans raced to Twitter saying she could be the winner of All-Stars 5. For even more Branjie drama, some fans speculated that Brooke Lynn Hytes and ex-partner Vanessa Vanjie Matteo might end up on the same season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars.
One of the front runners for the season 9 crown, contestant Shea Couleé, has not yet competed on All-Stars. When asked on Instagram if she would compete on the show again, Shea said she would be crazy to say “no.”
“But I am crazy tho,” Shea Couleé continued in another post on her Instagram story.
Miz Cracker also rescheduled her June Australia/New Zealand tour until later this year. Some fans speculate that she’s competing on RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars during the summer months. Miz Cracker commented on returning to previous All-Stars seasons in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“We have such incredibly big fish to fry. There are so many queer people in the world that do not have the rights they deserve,” said Miz Cracker, adding a choice word at the end. “That has to take precedence to me and it does. So that’s what I’m focused on right now. Reality first, then the TV inspired by reality.”
Some fans question whether RuPaul will put Eureka O’Hara and Silky Nutmeg Ganache on the same season of All-Stars. Other fan-favorites that might be included in an All-Stars season are Kim Chi, Peppermint, Derrick Barry, and Ongina. Only time will tell.
