VH1 renews 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' for a brand new fourth season
Audiences will get to catch their favorite queens as they return for a second chance to earn the crown and a place in the 'Drag Race Hall of Fame.'
VH1 has just revealed that 'RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars' has been greenlit for a new season. Audiences will now get to catch their favorite queens as they return for a second chance to earn the crown and a place in the “Drag Race Hall of Fame.” 'RuPaul’s Drag Race' season 10 and 'RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked' earned a combined 12 Emmy® Award nominations this year – a record for VH1 – and both shows were greenlit for new seasons earlier this year.
“This franchise is truly a force to be reckoned with,” said Pamela Post, head of scripted for the MTV, VH1, and Logo. “Our passionate and talented Queens continue to speak to our diverse fans who are not only looking for entertainment but also the encouragement and inspiration to be their unique selves.”

Produced by World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Steven Corfe, Mandy Salangsang and RuPaul Charles serving as Executive Producers, 'RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars' will be executive produced by Pamela Post and Tim Palazzola for VH1, while Jen Passovoy serves as Producer.
But as 'RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars' gets renewed for a brand new season, one of its stars - Alyssa Edwards aka Justin Jonathan - is also gearing up with her very own show, titled 'Dancing Queen.' As expected, this sort of pin off is going to be every bit as dramatic as the original show, with Edwards training the next generations of stars for the big stage, but what makes it even more exciting is that it's going to be a Netflix original!
But both 'All Stars' and this new show, 'Dancing Queen,' are going to originate from the mothership that is 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' 'All Stars,' of course, features past “Drag Race” performers embarking on their journey towards a variety of comedy, dance and acting challenges, which include events like “Lip Sync for Your Legacy.” Previous prizes of these challenges have included tempting stuff like a one-year supply of cosmetics and $100,000.
RuPaul serves as a judge on the show 'All Stars,' alongside Michelle Visage and Carson Kressley - booth of whom are entertainment personalities.
