What? Like you thought there was going to be a breather after the season 15 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race? As if! To quote the lesser Cher. The Drag Race train must forever run the rails. After the success and high ratings of the season 15 finale, it’s clear that the appeal of Drag Race has yet to wane. We have to admit, looking over this collection of old school queens, we’re pretty excited about the season to come. Let’s re-meet the queens, shall we?

“Paramount+ today ru-vealed a legendary cast for the eighth season of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS, which begins streaming Friday, May 12 exclusively on the service with two all-new episodes.

Hola, the beauty is back! Chicago’s hardest-working pageant queen, Naysha Lopez, is ready for the biggest contest of them all! Gone too soon from season eight, this gorgeous glamazon – and former Miss Continental – will thrill drag fans all over again!


Our first thought was that this would be Darienne Lake’s to lose. She’s a highly polished queen who’s been part of the Drag Race family for a long time and knows how the game is played. But then we figured it might be a Kandy season. And there’s always fan favorite Jimbo to consider. We couldn’t predict a winner at this point and we’re not even sure we can reasonably pick a final top three, given how many shenanigans tend to be at play in the average all-star season. We’ll be recapping our way through the whole thing. Who are you rooting for? Who’s going to be the biggest surprise? Who’s going to be the bitch of the season?
