The Queens are here to save the world by attempting to win $200,000 for their nominated charity, with good causes ranging from the ASPCA to the National Alliance of Mental Illness. Let the lip syncing begin...

Returning faces from the legendary Shannel and Roxxxy Andrews to more recent artists such as Angeria Paris VanMichaels and Gottmik have to show the usual levels of Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent but don't expect anything other than fierce competition just because there are altruistic ideals at play.

RuPaul will again preside over the judging panel of Mama Ru, Michelle Visage and a revolving door of celebrity guest judges including Keke Palmer, Alec Mapa, Connie Britton and Oscar-nominated "Everything Everywhere All At Once" star Stephanie Hsu.

In the States, the show is available exclusively via Paramount Plus (7-day free trial). Americans traveling abroad will need a VPN to access their usual subscriptions. Here's how to watch "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars" season 9 online and from anywhere.
