RuPaul arrives at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 17, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

RuPaul fans have been eagerly awaiting details on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars since it was announced in August. Would we see season 9 standouts Valentina or Trinity Taylor? Maybe fan favorites of seasons past like Trixie Mattel, Kim Chi or Courtney Act? How about a third opportunity for Raven to snatch the crown. (But seriously: #JusticeForRaven).

Hot off his second consecutive Emmy win for outstanding host for a reality competition program, RuPaul is ready to announce the All Stars cast with an hour-long eleganza extravaganza. The special will reveal the queens who are set to make the ultimate comeback and join the ranks of previous All Stars winners Chad Michaels and Alaska Thunderfuck.

“Millions of fans have their favorite queens that they think should be on All Stars 3” said Mama Ru. “But the final decision is mine to make. Prepare to be gagged."

RuPaul will be joined by the legendary Chaka Kahn for an exclusive interview as he reveals the new cast. The special episode will air Friday, Oct. 20 at 8:00 pm ET/PT on VH1. Check out the teaser below.

To celebrate the new All Stars season, Logo will air a RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars full season two marathon beginning on Sunday, Oct. 22 at noon ET/PT.
