RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 is winding down -- as is RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race -- but if you thought Mama Ru was going to take her foot off the gas anytime soon, think again: RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 5 premieres next month!

First, a bit of housekeeping. Though it was previously announced that All Stars 5 would move to Showtime this summer, due to "various scheduling and programming adjustments" amid the ongoing Jandemic pandemic, it will stay put on VH1, premiering Friday, June 5.

All Stars 5 will see 10 returning queens compete for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame and a cash prize of $100,000. Oh, and there's a twist. Because of course there's a twist. "For All Stars 5, we've come up with a new twist that is so twisted, it's guaranteed to twist your twisted minds," RuPaul teased.

Without further ado, here are the queens returning to the Werk Room:

Alexis Mateo came in third with a "BAM!" her original season. "Puerto Rico in the house to take the crown. Sickening, no?" says the queen, who is also drag mother to Vanessa "Vanjie" Mateo.

After getting stuck in "a Britney box" and placing fifth place her season, the pop star impersonator still goes full 2000 VMAs for her entrance: "Ooo, I did it again!"

"India 2.0 here. Remodeled, remastered and ready for action," says the 10th-place finisher. Just maybe not too much action: India is best know for being queenhandled by Mimi Imfurst during their lip sync.

"Third time's a charm!" proclaims the reading challenge legend, who finished in third place during both her original season and her original run on All Stars.

The Cracker didn't just crumble, she was crushed when she was eliminated just short of final four. But now she's ready for round two: "Annnnnd Crack-tion!!!"

"So y'all thought I'd never get here? Sorry, I was stuck in traffique," says All Stars 5's biggest blast from the past and fifth place finalist from all the way back in season 1.

All Stars was created for a queen like Shea Couleé, a frontrunner who placed third after losing a finale lip sync to Sasha Velour and her rose petal reveal. Now? "I'm blaaaaack."


RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars premieres June 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
