'RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race' Returning for Second Season
Three years after its first season, Logo is bringing RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race back.
The Viacom-owned LGBT-focused cable network on Wednesday announced that the fan favorite series would return for a second season.
A premiere date and official casting lineup have not yet been announced for the series, which will see former contestants return to vie for a chance spot in the "Drag Race Hall of Fame" alongside season one All Star winner Chad Michaels.
"They arrive as drag artists. They leave as international stars,” executive producer RuPaul said. "The chance to bring back the best of the best for a new season of All Stars is a dream come true for me and their legions of fans around the world."
"On the heels of Drag Race’s seventh season, one of the most buzzworthy and highly-watched seasons to date, our fans have spoken and they want more drama, more queens and more Ru," said Pamela Post, head of original programming at Logo. "From revisiting old favorites in RuVealed and All Stars, to meeting the new stars of season eight, the Drag Race party on Logo will be bigger and better than ever before."
RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race is produced by World of Wonder Productions with Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Mandy Salangsang, Steven Corfe and RuPaul Charles serving as executive producers. Chris McCarthy, Pamela Post and Tim Palazzola oversee for Logo.
The news comes after RuPaul's Drag Race scored its first-ever Emmy nomination last week for outstanding makeup. Ru Paul's Drag Race: Season 4 RuVealed premieres with a 90-minute episode on July 31 at 8 p.m.
