*“RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” will return for a third season on VH1, and the network has also signed on for another season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked,” the behind-the-scenes after-show for the reality competition, reports Variety.
“The world is calling out to see more of these beautiful queens and I am going to give them every bit of it they can handle,” executive producer and host RuPaul says. “‘All Stars’ represent the best of the breasts, legs, and thighs. They are giving everything and you’re not going to want to miss it!”
The third season of “All Stars” will mark the return of “Drag Race” to VH1 after moving there from sister Viacom network Logo. This will be the first time “All Stars” will run exclusively on VH1, which executive producer Tom Campbell tells Variety will come with a new and larger platform.
“I think there’s going to be queens that the audience who’s just discovering ‘Drag Race’ may not know, as well, or may be discovering for the first time. It’s going to be exciting to see queens get a second bite of the apple and get some exposure that maybe they did not get the first time around,” Campbell says.
The ninth season of “Drag Race” on VH1 was it its most-watched season in series history. The finale also trended across top social platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and was the No. 1 most-social program during its day of broadcast.
“All Stars” will premiere on VH1 in early 2018. “Untucked” will return just in time for the milestone 10th season of “Drag Race,” which is set to premiere in spring 2018.
