RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 8 Cast Revealed

There’s no stopping the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise, honey. Season 15 of the mother series just wrapped up and RuPaul and company are wasting no time getting ready for another lap. RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 will take off on Paramount+ on May 12 — and we know which queens are taking their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to the track. Have we had enough of the racing metaphors for this post? Let’s say we have.

The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 is an exciting and eclectic mix of queens from not only the franchise’s global herstory. We’ve got returning queens from as early as Season 2 returning to the Werk Room, and we have one Canadian queen who’ll be competing in America for the first time. Not only that, we have more than one queen who just missed making it to the finale of their original season — and we have a couple queens who were told to sashay away first. This cast is full of wild cards and we cannot wait to see how this turns out.

Below you’ll find rundowns of all 12 queens ruturning to Drag Race, including their official bios provided by World of Wonder. Get to know them now, because the next race begins with a two-episode premiere on May 12 on Paramount+.
