AceShowbiz - It won't be long for the drag queens to return to television! VH1 has announced that the third season of fan-favorite "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" is set to premiere in January on the network.
"The rumors are 100|percent| true, baby," executive producer and Emmy-winning host RuPaul says in a statement about the upcoming new season of the "RuPaul's Drag Race" spin-off . "[Our] debut delivers my most legendary queens, and they're fired up and ready to take over the mother-tucking world. #RealNews #FakeEyelashes."
Alongside the announcement, VH1 has unearthed a brand new trailer for the upcoming season. Donning a Meryl Streep's 2012 Oscar gold dress-inspired ensemble, Mama Ru opens the trailer by saying, "Let the games begin. Are you ready to go for the goal? My most legendary Queens return to battle for the crown."
One of the returning stars, Trizie Mattel, is seen cutely moving her legs while lying on her stomach on a gold sofa. "Snatching trophies?" the season 7 contestant says, before showing off her maniacal laughter. She turns deadly serious later as she says, "I am a trophy."
Shangela, who came in sixth in season 3, coos, "I'm back for the crown!" Morgan McMichaels from season 3 steals people's attention in the trailer. "Competition? What competition?" she asks while literally breaking a high heel.
Also vying for a place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame in the upcoming season are Aja from season 8, BenDeLaCreme from season 6, Chi Chi DeVayne from season 8, and Kennedy Davenport from season 7. Milk and Thorgy Thor, who return to the franchise after competing in season 6 and season 8 respectively, will also join them in the wig-snatching and stiletto-snapping fun.
"RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" season 3 premieres on Thursday, January 25 at 8 P.M. on VH1.
