Los Angeles, CA (Entertainment Weekly) — RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars 5, season 12 officially sashaying to VH1.
After 14 franchise Emmy nods this year, VH1 has confirmed 'RuPaul's Drag Race' will be back for All-Stars 5 and season 12 in the near future.
VH1 confirmed the Emmy-winning reality competition series will soon return with two new editions: RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 5 and RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 — both of which series host and producer RuPaul discussed Monday in a short video announcement.
“Hey, squirrel friends! Are you hungry for more RuPaul’s Drag Race? Well, good, because your country breakfast is ready!” RuPaul says in the clip while he sits at the judging panel clad in a glistening one-shoulder gown and a sky-high blonde wig. “I’m serving up a new season of All-Stars 5 and a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race 12. They’re coming soon to VH1!”
The recent All-Stars 4/season 11 stretch of RuPaul’s Drag Race saw the series break its own franchise record for Emmy nominations, scoring 14 total nods (including one for Outstanding Reality Competition Series, which it won last year) across recent episodes, digital shorts, and companion series Untucked, all of which were spearheaded by production company World of Wonder. In May, the show crowned oddball fan-favorite Yvie Oddly its latest winner, while season 10’s Monét X Change and season 9’s Trinity The Tuck finished All-Stars 4 in an unprecedented Drag Race tie in February.
