Joining RuPaul and his band of series-regular judges on the panel this season will be Black-ish actress Jenifer Lewis, R&B singer Ciara, country star Kacey Musgraves, Olympian Gus Kenworthy, Love, Simon star Keiynan Lonsdale, actress and singer Zoë Kravitz, actress Yvette Nicole Brown, SNL star Cecily Strong, pop singer Rita Ora, club legend Susanne Bartsch, Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, artist Frances Bean Cobain, Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, designer Jason Wu and actress Erica Ash.
For a number of these stars, guest judging on Drag Race is a logical next step. Musgraves, for example, told GQ back in March that she has always wanted to appear as a judge on the show; Kenworthy has also been a longtime admirer of both the show and RuPaul; and Lewis has been a longtime friend and collaborator of All Stars 3 star Shangela.
Logo, the former home of Drag Race, also announced that in the lead-up to the new season of All Stars, the channel will air a weeklong marathon of every single season of Drag Race and All Stars starting Dec. 7. Fans can also look forward to the show’s upcoming holiday special, RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular, which will air on Dec. 7 and feature fan favorites like Trixie Mattel, Shangela, Kim Chi and more.
