“RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Sashays to Showtime, Gets June Premiere Date

"RuPaul's Drag Race: Generation Q"!

Showtime is really queering up its schedule.

The premium cable network recently found success with The L Word: Generation Q and Work in Progress. Now it’s looking to keep LGBTQ viewers hooked by airing the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

That’s right. All Stars, which aired on Logo for its first two seasons before moving to VH1, is officially sashaying over to Showtime, which is part of the same ViacomCBS family.

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 media 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.”

All Stars has a new home and a premiere date: The fifth season of the series is slated to premiere Friday, June 5, at 8/7c.

The new season of All Stars is just one version of Drag Race comin’ at you in 2020. First up, Drag Race Season 12 premieres Friday, February 28, on VH1. Celebrity Drag Race is slated to premiere later this year, along with a second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K.

It’s almost too tucking much!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
