Hot off the heals of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season sixteen crowning Nymphia Wind as their new reigning queen, Drag Race All Stars Nine is about to launch this May.

Today World Of Wonder have officially revealed the queens and a new twist to the competition.

And of course, there are a few firsts to be seen.

Drag Race All Stars 9 cast revealed

The cast of Drag Race All Stars has long been rumoured since it was allegedly filmed last year.

As usual super fans have scoured the internet for clues as to who would be returning to fight for the crown again.

And it seems all the internet speculation has been correct with the queens for the upcoming season now officially revealed to the public.

The newest all star cast features some powerhouse Drag Race legends fighting against some incredible fan favourites.

Included in the news today is a world first for the franchise.

Eight queens, the lowest number for any regular All Stars season, will compete to raise money for charity instead of a prize for themselves this season.

The queens will battle it out for a cash prize of $200,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice.

Just what format the season will take is yet to be confirmed.

Early rumours have it that similarly to All Stars seven, this will be a non elimination season, allowing the queens to show off their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent across the whole season.

Other production rumours allege that for the first time ever queens were allocated a costume budget of $25,000 each as well as a participation fee for the season.

But it looks like we will have to wait until May 17 when the season begins to find out just how this will all play out.
