Drag Race All Stars 6 is sashaying to a new streaming service and fans are furious
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 is moving from VH1 to the new Paramount Plus streaming service.
It follows an aborted move for All Stars 5, which was announced for the group’s cable network Showtime last year. After criticism from fans over the “greedy” move, the series moved back to VH1, officially because of COVID-19-related “scheduling adjustments”.
Drag Race apparently didn’t learn its lesson, because immediately after the announcement, fans revolted.
Yeah, that’s a no for me. I already pay for cable (VH1) and WOW presents plus. I’m not paying for a third just to watch this show. Especially when the fans already leak the cast and elimination order. I’ll find a torrent.

I pay for CBS All Access (or Paramount+ now I guess) and I still think this is a bad move. Why cant AS6 stay on VH1 or at least be early access for Paramount users. Putting a popular show like this behind a paywall during a pandemic is not it.

Currently, there’s no news on a cast or premiere date for All Stars 6, which will see returning queens compete to join Shea Coulee (season 5), Monet X Change and Trinity the Tuck (season 4), Trixie Mattel (season 3), Alaska (season 2) and Chad Michaels (season 1) in the Drag Race hall of fame.
