If you were afraid of running out of RuPaul's Drag Race with the end of All Stars season five hurtling ever nearer, breathe easier. The franchise is launching a whole new television show on VH1, and this time we're going to Vegas.
Premiering on August 21, RuPaul's Drag Race: Vegas Revue is a six-episode docuseries revolving around the RuPaul's Drag Race Live! residency. That show launched earlier this year (we loved it) and cast show alum as its stars. The cast rotated and was originally slated to go through the end of this year. The ongoing global pandemic interrupted that but before the residency ended, World of Wonder Productions got enough content to make a show.
The new VH1 series shows not only what happened onstage for the residency also behind the scenes. "The series gives fans a deeper look into the lives of their favorite queens as they showcase the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent it takes to pull off groundbreaking performances in front of a live audience," a release said. The hope is we'll get some juicy details like, why exactly Kameron Michaels and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo are kissing in the trailer.
Your queens: Yvie Oddly, Asia O'Hara, Derrick Barry, Kameron Michaels, Naomi Smalls, and Vanessa "Vanjie" Mateo. And, having seen this show when it was on stage, Asia O'Hara is the host we all need in our lives!
(Oh, and yes they come with their own Pit Crew!)
Watch the show's trailer below. An extended first look at the show will debut during the finale of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars season five this Friday.
