    Re: RuPaul's Drag Race in the Media

    Blogs and social media are reporting that filming will most likely start for the new seasons later this week.

    All-Stars 3 will begin filming first, lasting until mid-August, and then Season 10 will be filming for about a month after that.

    Social media always loves noticing which queens have no bookings around this time of year, and who drop off of Twitter or Facebook claiming they have a movie to film or something. You can usually piece together the casts for the new seasons if you have the time and energy. Personally, I prefer not to be spoiled if I can avoid it.

    VH-1 made it official today: Season 10 airs Spring 2018, and All-Stars 3 is also coming. PLUS, Untucked is moving back to TV, after spending seasons 7-9 on the web only. All those Emmy nods really paid off!

    VH1 Orders ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ Season 3 and More ‘Untucked'

    “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” will officially be back for a third season, Variety has learned exclusively. Additionally, VH1 has greenlit another season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked,” the behind-the-scenes after-show for the reality competition.

    “The world is calling out to see more of these beautiful queens and I am going to give them every bit of it they can handle,” executive producer and host RuPaul says. “‘All Stars’ represent the best of the breasts, legs, and thighs. They are giving everything and you’re not going to want to miss it!”

    The third installment of “All Stars” will mark the return of “Drag Race” to VH1 after moving there from sister Viacom network Logo. This will be the first time “All Stars” will run exclusively on VH1, which executive producer Tom Campbell tells Variety will give the competing queens a new and larger platform. “I think there’s going to be queens that the audience who’s just discovering ‘Drag Race’ may not know, as well, or may be discovering for the first time. It’s going to be exciting to see queens get a second bite of the apple and get some exposure that maybe they did not get the first time around,” Campbell says.

    Airing the ninth season of “Drag Race” on VH1 gave it its most-watched season in series history. The finale also trended across top social platforms Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and was the No. 1 most-social program during its day of broadcast. “The massive swell of new and longtime fans of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is nothing short of incredible,” Pamela Post, senior VP original programming and development at VH1, says. “We are motivated now more than ever to ensure ‘Drag Race’ remains a shining example of inclusion and community, as well as fierce fashions and legendary lip-syncs.”

    Social media is a key factor at this time in the show’s history. “We’re incredibly lucky that we have a cast who is already well-known, and right when we announce it people are going to be jumping up and down with joy,” executive producer Randy Barbato says.

    However, Barbato says the priority when putting together the cast for “All Stars” is not the size of the queens’ followings, but who has “the chops.” “It’s either talent that we think wasn’t fully recognized during their previous season, talent that we think have demonstrated improvement – there’s a variety of things we look at when we’re putting together the cast,” Barbato says. “What makes ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ so unique from so many other competition shows is that there is this cornucopia of incredible talent, so we have this amazing canvas of drag queens to choose from.”

    Of course, the producers want to surprise their core audience and welcome new fans to the show, as well. Bringing the Emmy-nominated “Untucked” onto VH1 is just another way to do that. Though the companion series started on Logo, it has most recently lived in the digital space. Putting it back on television will open the platform up further and give the audience deeper insight into the contestants. “This is the show, watching the queens. It combines our love of drag with our love of documentary, and we just let it happen,” executive producer Bailey Fenton says. “As it plays, it’s very real, and that’s the joy of it.”

    “All Stars” will bow on VH1 in early 2018. “Untucked” will return just in time for the milestone 10th season of “Drag Race,” which is set to premiere in spring 2018.

    Ru couldn't be there to accept this time, as she was hosting RuPaul's Drag Con all weekend in NYC. (Wish I could have gone)

    The Primetime Emmys are next Sunday, where Drag Race is still up for Best Reality Competition program.

    Oh dear, one of the contestants currently filming season 10 is a naughty boy/queen...spoiling one contestant's name, but let's face it, these days you can go to reddit and find out who they all are (I choose not to).
