All will be revealed when All Stars 5 kicks off on June 5 with Shea Coulée, Miz Cracker, Alexis Matteo, Blair St Clair, Mariah Balenciaga, India Ferrah, Derrick Barry, Mayhem Miller and Ongina all returning to compete for a spot in the Drag Race hall of fame.
In the US, the new season will air on VH1 having previously been announced for premium network Showtime.
The switch prompted a fierce backlash, but network owners said this wasn’t the reason for the double-back.
Rather, they blamed the coronavirus pandemic, which has “resulted in various scheduling and programming adjustments”.
