It’s a Brand Ru Day for the 13 Queens of “Drag Race All Stars” Season 6

The new season premieres June 24 on Paramount+ with two all-new episodes.

Better make some room in the Drag Race Hall of Fame because these queens are back, back, back, back again.

The six-ening cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 6 was RuVealed on Wednesday (May 26), and like a phoenix, they are about to rise from the ashes, henny! The 13 queens who will be vying for their spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame are: A’Keria C. Davenport (Season 11), Eureka! (Season 9, 10), Ginger Minj (Season 7, All Stars 2), Jan (Season 12), Jiggly Caliente (Season 4), Pandora Boxx (Season 2, All Stars 1), Ra’Jah O’Hara (Season 11), Scarlet Envy (Season 11), Serena ChaCha (Season 5), Silky Nutmeg Ganache (Season 11), Kylie Sonique Love (Season 2), Trinity K. Bonet (Season 6), and Yara Sofia (Season 3, All Stars 1).

“13 All Stars deliver one of the best Drag Race seasons ever!” RuPaul said in a statement. “Don’t take my word for it. You’ve got to stream it to believe it.”

Back in February, ViacomCBS announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars would be moving from VH1 to Paramount+, its new streaming platform. Now we know All Stars will launch on Thursday, June 24, with two all-new episodes. New episodes will then drop weekly along with a new season of Untucked.

In addition to the All Stars cast RuVeal and premiere date, it was also announced on Wednesday that Queen of the Universe — a new drag singing competition show from World of Wonder — will hit the streaming service later this year on Thursday, December 2. The one-of-a-kind series will feature drag queens from all over the world going wig-to-wig to see who will be crowned the ultimate Queen of the Universe.

“RuPaul’s Drag Race is a global phenomenon and we are thrilled to bring All Stars to Paramount+ as we expand our reality offerings,” said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV Entertainment. “And, with Queen of the Universe, we are going global as we create the first annual international singing competition to finally answer the question which country has the best drag queen.”

Well, squirrel friends, are you happy with this crop of queens about to compete for their spot next to Chad Michaels, Alaska, Trixie Mattel, Monét X Change, Trinity the Tuck, and Shea Couleé? Did your fave phoenix rise from the ashes?

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