Who are the judges in RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5?

RuPaul and Michelle Visage will once again be welcoming some brilliant guest judges to sit alongside them.

What’s the twist this season?

Ru is throwing away the rule book this year, promising us ‘the biggest shake-up in herstory’. All Stars rules have been ‘suspended forever’ and the queens will be playing ‘a brand new game’. We’re excited! One big twist is that the queens won’t just be lip-syncing for their legacy – they will also face a secret assassin each week, a superstar queen returning to rival them. But who will slay?

When is RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 on TV?

Netflix has confirmed that it will stream the new All Stars season next month, huzzah. They haven’t released an official date yet, however the last series of Drag Race aired a day after US broadcast. As the new season launches in America on 5th June, and we should have had it the same day, but there were some issues out of Netflix’s hands which meant we won’t get the first episode until 13th June. But the good news is, we’ll get two episodes at the same time. Hurrah!

Is there a trailer for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5?

Yes there is! All together now, “Bring back my girls…”

And we can do better than a quick trailer – who needs a tease when you can enjoy 7 minutes and 36 seconds of Queen RuVeals? You’re welcome…
