A third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars has been confirmed by VH1.

The show brings back your favourite queens from past seasons as they go head to head as they eliminate each other, rather than the choice being down to Mama Ru.

As well as the third season of All Stars, the network has also confirmed that the after show RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked will also make a return.

RuPaul, who recently won an Emmy for Drag Race, said that they could not wait for the new season.

“The world is calling out to see more of these beautiful queens and I am going to give them every bit of it they can handle.

“All Stars represent the best of the breasts, legs, and thighs. They are giving everything and you’re not going to want to miss it!”

Pamela Post, SVP of original programming and development at VH1 added that the revival comes after Season 9 pulled in the best ratings yet.

“The massive swell of new and longtime fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race is nothing short of incredible.

“We are motivated now more than ever to ensure Drag Race remains a shining example of inclusion and community, as well as fierce fashions and legendary lip-syncs.”

Chad Michaels and Alaska Thunderf-k are the previous winners of All Stars.

A line-up for the new season has not yet been confirmed.

However, executive producer Randy Barbara said that fans would likely see some queens coming back even better than before.

Barbato said: “It’s either talent that we think wasn’t fully recognised during their previous season, talent that we think have demonstrated improvement – there’s a variety of things we look at when we’re putting together the cast.

“What makes ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ so unique from so many other competition shows is that there is this cornucopia of incredible talent, so we have this amazing canvas of drag queens to choose from.”

All Stars season three will premiere in early 2018 and Untucked will return alongside season 10 in spring 2018 on VH1.
