Just when you thought the well of RuPaul’s Drag Race has run dry, Mama Ru has announced the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 6 which will duck walk its way from VH1 to Paramount+ on June 24.
The move from VH1 to Paramount+ is an interesting one as the franchise has been a gold mine for VH1 when it comes to ratings. Season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race debuted as the most-watched episode in the history of the franchise with a staggering 1.3 million total viewers. The finale where Symone won the crown was the most-watched episode of the Emmy-winning reality drag queen competition series since the Season 10 finale in 2018. Season 3 of All Stars also turned out strong ratings while season 5 aired on VH1 during the pandemic and was welcomed during the doom and gloom of the ‘rona.
At one point, All Stars was slated to debut on Showtime, before it was announced that it would be going to Paramount+… all of which are part of the ViacomCBS family.
In addition, it was announced that the Drag Race franchise will expand with World of Wonder’s Queen of the Universe on Paramount+ on December 2. Inspired by international singing competitions where countries go head to head with their best drag queens, this first-of-its-kind singing competition brings together drag queens from all around the world to compete for global domination.
But enough of all that you are here for the cast — which many fans may already know because of Reddit rumors, speculations and leaks.. Check out the teaser below with the cast descriptions below.
