Meet the Cast of 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Season 9

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars

Paramount+ announced the cast of returning divas on Tuesday.

The countdown to glitter, glam, and fierce competition is on as Paramount+ unveils the lineup for RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 9.

Fans are in for a treat as eight beloved queens return to the mainstage, with the stakes higher than ever.

The upcoming season premieres on Friday, May 17, and promises to be a dazzling spectacle as queens from previous seasons vie for a chance to secure their spot in the coveted "Drag Race Hall of Fame." But there's a twist this time – they're competing for a noble cause.

For the first time in the franchise's herstory, the queens will be battling it out for glory and to win a generous donation of $200,000, courtesy of The Palette Fund, for a charity of their choosing. It's drag with a purpose, as these fierce performers harness their talents to support various organizations close to their hearts.

Alongside the exhilarating main competition, viewers will once again get a backstage pass to all the drama and emotion with new episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars: Untucked available exclusively on Paramount+. From tense lip-sync battles to heartwarming moments of camaraderie, the Untucked Lounge promises to be a hub of excitement and revelation each week.
