Mr. Gilligan already posted a link to it on our Facebook but this warrants an actual post….
LOGO TV and World of Wonder have announced that there will be a second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars. But, it won’t be broadcast until AFTER Season 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race which is currently filming in Los Angeles. If they follow tradition, Season 8 will premiere in Jan/February of 2016 to wrap up by May/June. It appears, “All-Stars 2” might premiere next June.
From the press release:
Ending years of fan speculation, and hot off the heels of the franchise’s well-deserved, first Emmy nomination last week, Logo today announced “RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race” will return for a second season, packed with more eleganza and double-lashed side eye than Drag Race has ever seen. A bevy of the most talked about queens in “RuPaul’s Drag Race” herstory will return to battle it out in unforgettable, wigtastic challenges as they try to sashay their way into the “Drag Race Hall of Fame” alongside Chad Michaels, who took home the first season’s All Stars crown. The second season of “RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race” is slated to premiere following the eighth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Cast details and premiere dates will be announced at a future time.
“They arrive as drag artists. They leave as international stars,” said Executive Producer, RuPaul. “The chance to bring back the best of the best for a new season of ‘All Stars’ is a dream come true for me and their legions of fans around the world.”
“On the heels of Drag Race’s seventh season, one of the most buzzworthy and highly-watched seasons to date, our fans have spoken and they want more drama, more queens and more Ru,” said Pamela Post, Head of Original Programming, Logo. “From revisiting old favorites in RuVealed and All Stars, to meeting the new stars of season eight, the Drag Race party on Logo will be bigger and better than ever before.”
We’ve already surmised that popular local performer ROBBIE TURNER is off currently filming Season 8 of RPDR. As for All-Stars 2, it’s likely that Seattle’s OTHER beloved queen who didn’t win her season, BenDeLaCreme, would be a part of this series. Our Ben won Miss Congeniality for Season Six and was a fan favorite.
It’s not known if the new All-Stars will cast contestants from ALL the seasons, or only the ones that have happened since the LAST All-Stars. The first show cast non-winners from Seasons One through Four. It’s also not known if the second series would follow the exact format as the first one, which was a shorter season of six episodes featuring paired contestants. Chad Michaels was the winner of that show. (Note: Chad is coming to Seattle’s Neighbours for the weekend of August 8 and 9, 2015 for TWO big shows, including the LEO PARTY with Yara Sofia!)
My Wish List for All-Stars 2 would be:
Alaska, Roxxy and Alyssa from Season 5.
Adore, BenDeLa, Laganja and Darienne from Season 6.
Ginger, Katya and Kennedy from Season 7.
If they go back to Seasons 1-4, I’d like to see Phi Phi and Jiggly from Season 4; Shangela and Delta from Season 3 and ….no one from Season 1 and 2 because I don’t care about those seasons anymore.
Miss Robbie Turner could even turn up on All-Stars 2. It’s apparently filming AFTER Season 8 wraps. If Robbie makes an impression during the taping of that season, she and other girls from her season could also be on the new show.
WHO do you want to see on All-Stars 2?
