Hold onto your high heels, Foxtel has confirmed it will fasttrack the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars after all.
News that it will air express from the US follows a legal clampdown on RuPaul fans having viewing parties via Virtual Private Network.
The series will kick off this Friday at 8:30pm, same day as the US, now on Arena.
Foxtel’s Head of Channels, Stephen Baldwin commented: “We know how passionate RuPaul fans are. Foxtel has been working closely with the production company, World of Wonder, and Passion Distribution and we are thrilled they have made it possible for the series to air in Australia just hours after its US telecast.”
In this second All Stars instalment, YouTube sensation Todrick Hall joins Carson Kressley and Michelle Visage on the judging panel alongside RuPaul for a season packed with more eleganza, wigtastic challenges and twists than Drag Race has ever seen.
The series will also feature some of RuPaul’s favourite celebrities as guest judges, including Raven-Symone, Ross Matthews, Jeremy Scott, Nicole Schedrzinger, Graham Norton and Aubrey Plaza.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 will see 10 of the most celebrated competitors vying for a second chance to enter Drag Race history, and will be filled with plenty of heated competition, lip-syncing for the legacy and, of course, the All-Stars Snatch Game.
The All Stars queens hoping to earn their place among Drag Race Royalty are: Adore Delano (S6), Alaska (S5), Alyssa Edwards (S5), Coco Montrese (S5), Detox (S5), Ginger Minj (S7), Katya (S7), Phi Phi O’Hara (S4), Roxxxy Andrews (S5) and Tatianna (S2).
